The Toughest

Who in your opinion is the toughest fighter you've seen in the ring? IMHO I think the toughest was Randall Tex Cobb. I still remember Cobb fighting Larry Holmes for the championship. Cobb took a serious beating for fifteen rounds and still was standing when the final bell rang. I believe Cobb also fought for the super heavy weight kickboxing title as well.

Hrm, I'm going to have to go with Fedor. His record does not lie.

Toughest would have to be Ramon Dekkers, if you've ever seen any of his Thai matches, he dished out and took an amazing amount of punishment in every fight he was in.

Fedor is getting up there though, he took some major punishment from Cro cop and smiled thru it all.

Fedor is the best fighter in the world, hands down. But I wouldn't say he's the toughest.

I'll have to think on this a while and get back to you on my pick for the toughest.

George Foreman. He wasn't a good boxer. But there was no man that could put him down. Eventually his opponent would get tired and good old George would take him out with one punch.

Foremans fight with Ron Lyle was a knock down fest on both sides. One would get up and knock the other down. Foreman finally knocked him out in the 5th.

David "Tank" Abbott.

While his fighting skills aren't exactly top notch, and he can be choked out, the guy can take some serious punishment.

Take a look at his fight with Dan Severn. Severn, while not exactly known for his striking skills, kept drilling Abbott while he was on the ground, and couldn't put him away. After the fight was over, and they were interviewing Abbott, he didn't sound hurt at all. If anything, he sounded the same as if someone just bought him a beer.

The only time I've ever seen a striker flat out KO Abbott was when he fought Vitor Belfort.

Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira. He has been on the receiving end of some major beatings and more often than not has won. Was spiked into the ground on his head TWICE by 350lbs. Bob Sapp, had a kneebar reversed on him by Sapp coming down with his knee, was kicked in the head by Mirko "Cro-Cop" Filipovic, was just viciously BEAT ON by Fedor for three rounds TWICE and was never even fazed. He actually won the fights against Sapp and Cro-Cop by armbar.

I'll second that. I don't think he can be KO'd at this time.

Ah, I almost forgot about Forrest Griffen.

This guy had his arm broken by his opponent. Instead of giving up, he simply decked the guy with his other arm, and KO'ed him.

Ummm...no. He had his arm broken by Jeremy Horn (the guy who just got pummeled against Liddell) when he tried to block a kick that also knocked him out.

Ken Shamrock doesn't seem to have the skills these modern fighters have but when it comes to toughness, he gets my vote. ;D

Shamrock is a strong vote. I'd put Nogueira ahead of him.


Chuck Liddell is amazingly tough. He wins most of his fights on that alone. He's not the most skilled fighter, but he has beaten a who's who of MMA because he hits like a freight train and can take as much as he deals until he connects on you. I don't think I've seen Chuck take a beating like Nogueira take from Cro-Cop and come back to win. I think Nog is the tougher of the two.

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is up there. He took the worst beating I've ever seen, Upwards of 20 knees to the face by Wanderlei Silva. He didn't go down until after the ref stopped it. He stood alot longer than I would have.

It's good that some don't forget the older days.

Chuck is incredible but when the big punch doesn't come he is a sitting duck. His submissions are nothing to brag about and his cardiovascular fails in the second half of the fight. Fortunately he is a big puncher and can take a crack too, more times than not he comes out looking very very good.

Chuck Liddell

his cardio is not weak by any means he is a great fighter. I saw him in k1 and he took kicks to the head and was dazed several times and he just kept shaking it off. These kicks would have KO'd almost anyone else.

Another really tough fighter in the UFC is Cabbage from Hawaii man that guy can really take a beating. He probably has the best chin in UFC

I agree he's a great fighter, but he does get tired in the second half of the fight. Its no secret that the way to fight Chuck is to take him late where his cardio fails. ;5 ^8

the thing is you have to take the abuse he dishes out for the first half of the fight. Not an easy task and even when he is worn down he still has KO power. His punching power is always a danger
