MMA currently has a lot of excellent boxers. Let’s take a look at 5 MMA fighters who are having outstanding performances in their league.
This Russian boxer is the person with the longest number of unbeaten matches in the UFC. He has won all 24 titles. Among those titles, the most impressive one is the win over Rafael Dos Anjos and Michael Johnson.
Khabib’s strength lies in his ability to wrestle and attack skills when his opponent is lying down on the ring. He holds the record for being a fighter with the most successful wrestling matches with 21 times. This achievement Khabib made in the match against Abel Trujillo at the UFC 160 event on 23/5/2013.
Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino
Cyborg is currently the most prominent MMA female fighter in the world chicken class, not Ronda Rousey or UFC champion Amanda Nunes. Her strong point is her right hand punches. So far, Cyborg has won 15 knockout out of 19 opponents and only lost 1 match 12 years ago.
He is the youngest champion in UFC history having a heavy bottom championship belt at 23 years, 242 days.
Jones is a complete fighter. He was the first person to fall and win over Daniel Cormier – former Olympic wrestler. The striking skills (punching, kicking, banging) and the American boxer’s grip are also very great. Because of that incident, Jones lost No. 1 in the UFC’s best boxers ranking and the championship belt then went to Cormier himself.
Referring to the current martial arts, Conor McGregor cannot be ignored. Extravagant personality but Irish boxers have a respectable talent. He ended up Jose Aldo’s feathering dominance for nearly 10 years with the fastest knock-out in title match history with a time of 13 seconds. With this feat, McGregor set a record when he became the first boxer to hold two UFC championships at the same time.
The last name is also very familiar. Demetrious Johnson has dominated the UFC flyer class since its inception in 2012. Johnson has a streak of 12 consecutive wins. He holds the UFC record as the most successful championship defender.
