0 of 10

    As the Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to grow as a global powerhouse, so too will its enormous fanbase.

    UFC fans have been drawn to the organization's lifelike thrill and entertainment as they inspire fans and viewers across the globe.

    Not only do these professional fighters inspire fans to someday become great, but to work hard as well.

    Through hard work comes success and, of course, a ripped body.

    The UFC is home to some of the most ripped athletes in any sport or organization.

    The following slides display the 10 most ripped fighters in the UFC.

    Let's take a look.

Cheick Kongo

1 of 10

    Since joining the UFC in 2006, Cheick Kongo has been considered one of the most ripped fighters in any organization of mixed martial arts.

    Apparently it's paid off, as Kongo is 10-4-1 inside the Octagon.

Alistair Overeem

2 of 10

    Alistair Overeem and his ripped body will meet Brock Lesnar in his Octagon debut on Dec. 30, 2011 at UFC 141.

    Overeem may very well be the most ripped fighter in the UFC today.

Kyle Kingsbury

3 of 10

    Kyle Kingsbury was on a fast track to the top of the light heavyweight division before being throttled by Stephan Bonnar at UFC 139.

    However, it hasn't affected Kingsbury's physique.

Georges St-Pierre

4 of 10

    Georges St-Pierre hasn't lost a bout en route to becoming the guy every man aspires to be.

    "Rush" is nearly unbeatable, has the swag and is jacked beyond belief.

Urijah Faber

5 of 10

    Just because Urijah Faber fights at 135 pounds doesn't mean he can't be one of the most ripped fighters in the UFC today.

    Faber is arguably the most jacked lighter-weight fighter in all of mixed martial arts.

Thiago Alves

6 of 10

    Let's be honest: Thiago Alves is one scary-looking dude.

    Even though he doesn't fight like it sometimes, it's fair to say he's pretty jacked.

Jon Jones

7 of 10

    Jon Jones is another example of a fighter who just seems to have everything going his way.

    "Bones" Jones is young, as cool as the other side of the pillow and, of course, jacked out of his mind.

Krzysztof Soszynski

8 of 10

    Many UFC fans across the globe probably aren't too familiar with the name of Krzysztof Soszynski.

    Regardless of whether or not fans know him, Soszynski is one of the most ripped athletes in any sport.

Phil Davis

9 of 10

    Phil Davis' body physique comes from a lifelong career in wrestling, as he is a former Division I All-American.

    The former Penn State graduate is on a fast track to the top of the light heavyweight division.

Vitor Belfort

10 of 10

    Vitor Belfort trimmed down a few pounds when he made the transition to the middleweight division of the UFC.

    However, Belfort remains one of the most chiseled fighters in the UFC.
