Yuji Nagata. His easy fight was prime Crocop, his other fight was Fedor.

What the hell does it mean to you guys when you say he's a warrior and not afraid to fight so and so??

The guy is making six figures per fight, I'm not a warrior but I'll go in there with ANYONE for that money, and so would 99% of the average working Joe's out there. The guy works as a fighter, he's no more or less brave then any other fighter. How many fighters out there are "afraid" to fight??

As for some of the guys on that list, they're names but when Mir beat them they no longer mattered. Prime Nog and Mirko would have wiped their ass with Mir.

Although Nogueira, Henderson, and Mir have faced some incredible competition... (they are still adding to their list because they still fight....) it wasn't that long ago when the answer was Kevin Randleman

Randleman faced

Tom Erikson
Bas Rutten
Pedro Rizzo
Maurice Smith
Renato Sobral
Ninja Rua
Shogun Rua
Chuck Liddell
Kazushi Sakuraba
Rampage Jackson
Ron Waterman
Mirko Crocop (in prime and 2x)
Fedor Emelienko
Randy Couture

There have been instances where professional fighters have "ducked/ avoided" other fighters...For example, even though Barnett and Nogueira are legends both ducked Fedor in Pride and chose to fight each other and Fedor was then given Hunt....Even today you have guys like Jon Fitch who wants no part of Palhares.....you have to give Mir credit he has that mentality that he would fight anyone....win lose or draw....

And good post, cant argue with the level of fighters he has faced, heart of a lion, fights a bit like a wood louse, spends a lot of his time on his back with his legs in the air, or curled up in a ball.
Love his determination, but hope he retires and becomes a coach, or commentator.
Scarier would have been fine on its own. OT yes an impressive list of opponent, and yes I hope retires soon. I don't want him to be the Riddick Bowe of MMA.
