Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is certainly one of the sport's all-time best knockout artists, but it's another aspect of his game that allows him to keep the fight standing: His takedown defense.

Jackson's 7-2 in the Octagon and became the first fighter to unify the PRIDE and UFC championships when he defeated Dan Henderson.

"Rampage" will need to utilize his takedown defense on Saturday night when he challenges Jon Jones for the light heavyweight championship at UFC 135.

With that being said, Jackson doesn't lead the pack as the No. 1 fighter in takedown defense in UFC history.

At the top of list are two former title holders, a current champion, and one talented lightweight. The top-five fighters in takedown defense have combined to win 51 fights in the Octagon.
