Royce Gracie - Do I need to say why?
MArco Ruas - The first complete fighter to showcase his skills in the UFC, he redefined the sport and set a trend to be followed.
Kazushi Sakuraba - Master of submission, constant innovator.

I didn't add Frank or Tank because I don't really consider them legends. Tank didn't really do anything good for the sport. He was a fat, out of shape, beer drinking brawler. Frank wasn;t added cause he didn't do anything new for the sport. If you have Frank, you should also have Tito. Would you have Tito listed as Legend? I don't think so.

Hey Tanner, Tito and Frank are not just one person, they are very different two fighters, Frank fought in many organizations with all kinds of rules, while Tito only fought at UFC, plus Frank has a win over Tito.
