    I would have to go with Alistar Overreem. I wish I was built like him.

    Melvin Manhoef genetically is unreal.

    Strongest and fastest - twitch muscle fibers ever.

    Mike Tyson...hey he's a fighter. His speed is unreal, and he's huge. Was huge even at the age of 19

    Randleman is a scary motherfucker, quick and big. I agree with the GSP vote though, he's got a great fighting physique.

    Randleman for sure, explosive, well built, incredibly strong. Easily could have been the greatest MMA fighter ever. He had every predisposition to be an all time great.

    The only question is how natural his physique was.

    isn't durability a factor of genetics? Eliminates monster and gsp.

    rampage?

    Randleman and Manhoef are very much the same just one wrestling and one MT.

    Man difference Manhoef actually tries to work on a having a ground game.

    Granted at this point in time he has not been that impressive using it.

    Manhoef, Randleman, GSP, AA...Melvin Guillard, Sokoudjou, and even Anderson Silva.

    Anderson seems to naturally carries less weight on a larger man's frame...he's got excellent reach, deceptive strength, and ridiculously heavy strikes...plus speed, flexibility and dexterity.

    as much as everyone would like to see him go away he just seems to keep winning and stays around year after year lol. the guy has zero fans but just keeps winning fights lol so i almost have to agree, he's not in some great shredded shape, he isn't super fast, but somehow, someway it works so yeah

    Terry has one of the biggest size and strength mismatches in any weightclass, he is still super agile, fast, etc...
