    Default Who had the greatest win streak in MMA history?

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...n-MMA-history/

    Royce Gracie
    •Undefeated in 13 fights, with 11 wins by submission, one decision, one draw (that he likely would have lost had there been judges.
    •Streak lasted 17 months.
    •Two opponents, Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn, were ever champions in MMA.
    •Had the advantage of being born into a family with generations of No Hold Barred fighting, against people with none.

    Fedor Emelianenko
    •Emelianenko’s 29-fight streak started on April 6, 2001, and ended on June 26, 2010, for more than nine years. Add four fights and a year if you discount the bogus cut stoppage.
    •Of his 29 fights, if you throw out the no contest, there were five decisions out of 28, meaning a finishing percentage of 82.1%.
    •Ten were against fighters who at some point in their careers held major MMA championships, and that doesn’t include his highest profile career win over Mirko Cro Cop.
    •Fought seven pro wrestlers, and MMA was not as evolved as it was during Anderson Silva's run.

    Wanderlei Silva
    •Unbeaten from August 12, 2000 to December 31, 2004, or nearly four years and five months, earning 16 wins, one draw and one no contest.
    •Throwing out the draw and no contest, in his 16 wins, only two were decisions, a finishing percentage of 87.5%.
    •Five of his wins came against fighters who won major championships during their career. Three other wins were over Kazushi Sakuraba, an all-time great who never held a major championship.
    •Aside from his gimmick match with Cro Cop, he didn’t face a non-Japanese fighter until Quinton Jackson, at which point he had beaten every tough, or even not-so-tough, Japanese in his division.

    Georges St-Pierre
    •Since the loss to Matt Serra on April 7, 2007, GSP had 11 wins in a row, ten of which were championship matches.
    •Tied Silva with ten title match wins in his streak.
    •St-Pierre’s finishing percentage of 27 percent is the lowest of the big five. However, he has only been in trouble once, when he was knocked down in his Nov. 17, title defense against Carlos Condit.
    •In only one fight, against Jake Shields, did he even lose a single round.
    •Six of his 11 wins were against men who held championships of major organizations, and three others, Jon Fitch, Josh Koscheck and Thiago Alves, were all right at that caliber.

    Anderson Silva
    Winning streak starting on April 22, 2006, with a first round knockout of Tony Fryklund.
    •88.2% finishing rate, the highest of anyone.
    •Six of his wins were against fghters who held major championships.
    •Overall quality of opposition is second only to St-Pierre.

    Fedor.

    Silva is P4P best skill-wise, in my eyes.

    Fedor's is still the greatest in my mind. It was just a great journey to watch.

    If GSP beats Hendricks then I think he has a clear case for a better streak than Silva (although I would not call "best streak" equivalent with best P4P).

    Then I'd put GSP and Fedor at the same level - their streaks look very different on paper but I think that is more reflective of the era in which their streaks took place, not the fighter themselves (with the notable exception of the finishing rate).

    For now Fedor.... but Jonny Bones jones is close behind. Jones has smashed the cream of the crop in what is my opinion the most stacked division in MMA. IF he can get by Goose, then maybe Glover and possible rematches with Machida before moving up.... its one hell of an impressive feat.
    Favorite Fights: Jonny Bones Jones, Wandy, Hendo, Cain, Matt Hughes, Melvin.

    Most disliked fighters: Michael Bisping, Spankie Edgar, Alistair Overeem, Anderson Silva, Tim Sylvia, Chuck Liddell

    Fedor and it's not close. Bones could catch that in my mind but it would be YEARS away and only because of the people he has faced and defeated already. For now....The Last Emperor still reigns.
