With the beginning of 2020, we entered into a new decade. It is time to discuss who are the best MMA fighters of the last decade. For all of us who are into betting on boxing online, especially MMA, this has currently been an interesting decade. If you also like to bet on boxing fights, stay tuned to this article and find out our opinion on this topic. We placed a lot of boxing bets and watched even more fights but which fighter was the best out there?
At the age of 23, he defeated Shogun Ruu and became the youngest champion in the UFC history. He also won against former champions Jackson Rampage, Machida, Evans and Belfort, of which, only Belfort managed to stay in the fight for 25 minutes. Truth to be told, he had some problems with doping which surely put a stain on his name. However, Jones returned and continued to dominate with impressive victories and he still did not lose a regular fight with K.O. or T.K.O. after all these years. He only lost one fight against Hamill who was awarded a victory after Jones was disqualified under 12-6 elbow rule.
Ever since his arrival in UFC in 2013, he has been a dominate fighter with a record of 28-0 (of which 8 by knockout, 10 by submission and 10 by decision. 12 of them were UFC wins). He won against Conor McGregor, Rafael dos Anjos, Edson Barboza, Dustin Poirer, Michael Johnson, Gleison Tibau, Abel Trujillo and many others. He has never been seriously injured in a single fight and he is still hardly dominating the scene.
Needless to say, his arrival in UFC was spectacular. McGregor has a different playstyle and he is able to predict opponent movements even before he makes it. That’s why he is one of the best and most famous fighters out there. In a fight for a title, he defeated Jose Aldo in a match that lasted for only 13 seconds. Jose Aldo was undefeated for almost 10 years and all it took for McGregor was a K.O. in the first 13 seconds. After that, he even raises to the higher level and defeats Eddie Alvarez. That victory made him the first fighter in the UFC history to hold two different championship titles in two divisions.
