I know I was a little late to the hype surrounding the MMA world and especially the UFC.

I really didn't become a "fan" until probably 2013 or 2014 and it was a combination of the mainstream coverage to my producer urging me to watch more.

Here are my favorite MMA and UFC fighters of all time.

First, you have Connor McGregor who is my all-time favorite with his constant confidence and resume to back it up.

Devin Clark is from Sioux Falls along with Ben Nguyen and they not only have the sentimental aspect, but they both are also true pros.

Chuck Liddell helped make the UFC and MMA world what it is today and interviewing him back in 2016 was a great honor.

Over the years, I have got to work with Ryan Bader at multiple events and followed his career closely ever since.

Nick Diaz and Tony Ferguson both have great personalities which helped to add some flare to my list as well.

Jon Jones, Ronda Rousey, and Demetrious Johnson are three of the greatest of all time and have to be on my list.
