Who are the greatest fighters in MMA? Some will say Anderson Silva, others will say Georges St.-Pierre and others will say Fedor Emelianenko. The fact of the matter is, we will never be able to come to an agreement as to who is the best.
However, we can break it down into categories. For example, who is the best striker or submission artist?
In this list I have tried to assemble the greatest fighters in each of these two categories, in history and in the present, and in the division they fought in.
In some cases, only one name will appear in that division. This is because that fighter will go down as the greatest striker or submission artist in that division and is still an active fighter today.
So without further ado, we start with the greatest submission artists in the game.
