    MMA's most experiences fighters

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Fri Nov 16, 2012 2:25 pm



    1. Travis Fulton - 309 fights, By far MMA's most experienced fighter

    2. Shannon Ritch - 130 fights, 130 fights that havnt gone the distance, winning or loosing he has never seen a decision.

    3. Dan Severn - 127 fights, Nipping on Shannons heels but he is set to retire this year. Having said that he has about double the wins.


    4. Jeremy Horn - 115 fights, no fights in 2012 which makes him the only one in the top 5 who hasnt fought this year.

    5. Brian Robinson - 108 fights, hasnt fought since 2010. Maby his latest 6 fight loosing spree retired him.

    6. Dennis Reed - 100 fights, had his 99th and 100th fight this year winning both, snapping his 11 fight loosing spree


    7. Paul Jenkins - 98 fights, Welsh 155er, only won 1 of his last 10 and hasnt fought since 2010


    8. Minowaman - 96 fights, 2 losses 2 wins this year, I could see him ending up top 5 of all time.

    9/10. Yuki Kondo - 89 fights, a win and a loss this year looks to be still going strong.

    Osami Shibuya - 89 fights, none since a loss and a dwar in 2010


    11/12. Shonie Carter - 86 fights, Briefly retired after a loosing spree but got a win and loss since, the loss being this year, the man had over 60 kickboxing fights too.

    Adriano Serrano - 86 fights, retired in 2008 on a win over a 6-1 guy, left the sport with a winning record.


    13. Travis Wiuff - 85 fights, Still actve fought 5 times this year going 3-2



    -----------------------------------------
    A load of records got hard to verify outside these guys There were claims of some of these guys having more fights and their records very form place to place but these are MMA'most experienced fighters.

    Anyone im missing?

    Seperated the retired guys from the active ones with an underline. Crazy to think how many MMA fighters are close to 100 fights.

    Guys off the top of my head who have loads are Ebersole at 67, Hallman ay 68... im sure there are some more round the 70 mark with big loosing records I just dont know of!

    I wrote an article about Kondo when 606 was still around, and honestly he could have been an early great had an appropriate weight class been available to him in the late 90's/early 2000's in Japan or the UFC (185 or 170). One of Japans best fighters of that era perhaps, but lacked the chance to show it.

    Kondo is a total legend, a propper hall of famer, how many times did that wee man Kick Schilts ass! Laughing

    Yeah he could have been one of the top 5 GOAT if he had a weight class in the early days no doubt.

    Wow thats some career! Another legendary overlooked japanese fighter who could have been an all time great if not for fighting guys twice his size...

    What is it with the Japanese and the need to fighter Giant westerners! Laughing
