    Jim Miller went 9-0 for a stretch.

    I worded it incorrectly. When I said length I was referring to the number of fights. Apologies.

    Given the timeline alone, Cerrone's current streak is the most impressive I can recall in recent times. Fighting top competition roughly ever 2 months for 14 months is unheard of.

    Bermudez was on a good streak but some of his 'wins' were not so clean. G Sot as mentioned was also on a pretty good streak before Siver shut him down.

    And as mentioned before fighting Edgar, Swanson was on the best streak at FW having beaten all of Conor's current best wins (before it was cool) and then some.

    Arlovski left the UFC for a 400% raise. His contract ended, he wasn't fired. He made $170k at UFC 82, and got $750k at Affliction: Banned, which was good while it lasted (THANKS BARNETT!)

    Jim Miller was the first one that came to mind.

    This seems quite unimpressive compared to some of the other suggestions.

    Didn't AA leave for a huge payday from Affliction?

    Edit: he got 1.5 million for fighting Fedor

    Matt Brown and it's not even close.

    Although, to play devil's advocate, I don't think he beat anyone in the top 10 during that run.

    Disagree with that. His streak was impressive for sure but Cerrone's was jsut as long and against much better competition.

    29-28 for the Eagle, deal with it.

    That crossed my mind but I counted the GP as a title. If you don't, then yeah that's a no brainer. Most impressive streak in MMA history that didn't earn a title.
