Strongest MMA Fighter?

I've heard people say Randy Couture's success was based almost entirely on his brute strength, as in when he simply man-handled Vitor Belfort. Mark Coleman once said Cro Cop was the toughest guy he's ever fought. Someone else said there is no one with the strength of Big Nog (i.e. his grip). Then there's Fedor, who I believe is a genetic "strongman" type who simply went the mma trail instead of powerlifting, which is why he isn't 6'1 325.

Who's the strongest fighter in terms of brute strength?
