    Who are the calmest fighters in the cage, or the most composed performances you have seen in MMA?

    Gunnar, Fedor, and the most obvious examples are all relevant

    But in terms of singular performances, Conor at UFC 205 stands out, and so does Jones at UFC 182

    Jon's performance was more impressive considering how much better DC is than Eddie, and both in his walkouts and mannerisms in the cage looked so relaxed and confident at the same time.

    Fedor's calmness is just one of the aspects that make him the GOAT.

    Conor's performance was way more impressive, in fact it is the most impressive title fight performance ever in the UFC. And he did it against a champion in the most stacked weightclass, so even saying DC is much better than Eddie is questionable.

    It shouldn't be

    But then again, it's just my opinion. Eddie does have a great resume

    In fairness, that was probably just a side effect of his dick pills.

    Fedor's calm demeanor is intense AF. He breaks opponents before they even start.

    I know most Sherdoggers are relatively new to the sport, but if you're talking about calmest in history you have to put Sakuraba at the top of that list. He used to stand outside his room joking with people and smoking cigarettes and would have to be told "hurry and get in the stadium -- they're calling your name". Rampage Jackson said that it was intimidating how calm Sak was.

    Conor was so calm because he knew Eddie hadn't a prayer.

    Different Sport but Floyd in nearly all his fights. Never seen a fighter with more composure.
