In MMA, it is extremely tough to remain undefeated for long periods. Even all current UFC champions have numbers other than 0 in the defeat column. Many fighters who were going undefeated a year ago have been stopped. That includes Israel Adesanya, who was the clear favourite according to bookmaker betting odds before his fight with Jan Blachowicz. Follow MMA news and analysts’ predictions here, as well as pick a reliable bookmaker. Meanwhile, we compiled a list of fighters who is still undefeated in such challenging circumstances and can make those numbers even more impressive.

5th place.

Jack Shore (15-0) is a 26-year-old fighter from Wales nicknamed ‘The Tank’ who competes at bantamweight. Shore’s main style is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, so it’s no surprise that he’s won 8 of his 15 fights by submission. However, the fighter’s rich arsenal has seen him win four battles in his professional KO/TKO career. In his last contest, the Welsh prospect won by referees’ decision over Ludwik Sholinian. As of now, Jack Shore’s fight against another fighter without a single loss, Umar Nurmagomedov (13-0), has already been announced. So there will soon be one less fighter with zero defeats on the line. The winner of the prospects fight has every chance of making the UFC rankings.

4th place.

Movsar Evloev (15-0), an undefeated fighter from Russia, is a Greco-Roman fighter. Movsar conducts his fights in a dominant but underwhelming manner. He has completed five fights in the UFC and won them all by referees’ decision. At the moment, he is ranked number 13 in the official UFC featherweight rankings. Yevloyev will face another prospect in his next fight, and his opponent is Ilia Topuria (11-0).

3rd place.

Khamzat Chimaev (10-0), a Chechen-born UFC fighter, representing Sweden. Chimaev competes under the UFC umbrella in the middleweight and welterweight divisions. He is said to have risen “on the hype train.” As this fighter has only had four fights in the UFC so far, he has been awarded the best performance in each of them.

True, Chimaev’s opponents, John Phillips, Reece McKee, Gerald Meerschaert, and Li Jingliang, cannot be called challenging. But these victories have earned Chimaev a 10th ranking in the welterweight division. It is also worth noting Khamzat’s changeable nature. He recently made statements about ending his career after suffering a coronavirus infection that did him more damage than his opponents.

2nd place.

Askar Askarov (13-0-1) is a 29-year-old fighter from Russia. Like most fighters from the Caucasia, Askar has a base in the form of wrestling. He is currently number two in the UFC’s flyweight rankings. At the same time, Askar is deaf and is even a Deaflympic freestyle wrestling champion. But that doesn’t stop him from getting wins against top opponents: Joseph Benavidez and Tim Elliott have fallen victims.

The only draw Askar had in his fight with the flyweight champion Brandon Moreno. Askar Askarov is still young enough and has every chance of securing the championship. Despite being deaf, he remains a fighter without outright weaknesses.

1st place.

Ciryl Gane (10-0-0) is the UFC’s top heavyweight. Number one ranked and interim heavyweight champion. “Bon Gamin” demonstrates not only physical power but also clever fight strategy, allowing him not to take significant damage by leading the fight.

He has ten wins to his credit in his 3-year professional career, including 4 TKOs, three submissions, and three unanimous decisions. On his way to the interim belt, he passed Junior Dos Santos, Derrick Lewis, Alexander Volkov, and Jairzinho Rozenstruik. But Ciryl Gane is yet to fight Francis Ngannou, and it remains to be seen if this technical heavyweight will match the power of the defending champion.
