He may don’t have an amazing MMA record like the other fighters of our top 10 best MMA fighters of all time, but while I was researching to prepare for this article, I found many guys commenting on different blogs and videos, mentioning him as the best ever, or at least between the top 4 fighters.

I was wondering, what makes a guy with 11 losses out of 50 fights gets all this credit! Numbers aren’t always showing the best fighters, but the style is. Mirko’s fighting style was really impressive, he was known for his signature left head kick, which made many fighters sleep, either in MMA or K-1. As Mikro is the 2nd fighter in the world to win mixed martial arts and kickboxing titles.
