Alexander Volkanovski - 11 wins
First win in the series - November 26, 2016 (Mizuto Hirota)
Last win in the series - April 9, 2022 (The Korean Zombie)
Reigning UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski opens our top ten fighters with the biggest winning streak. The Australian not only has a winning streak of 11 fights but has also won every fight in UFC.
The Great has signed with the strongest promotion in the world with a record of 13-1. Alexander made his debut on November 26, 2016 at UFC Fight Night 101. At this event, Volkanovski defeated Mizuto Hirota by technical knockout and began his triumphant journey in the UFC. On December 14, 2019, the Australian fighter defeated Max Holloway by unanimous decision of the judges at UFC 245 and won the featherweight championship belt.
Best victories in the streak: Max Holloway (twice), Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes, Brian Ortega and The Korean Zombie.
Alex Volkanovski is only 33 years old, and he has a great opportunity to not only improve his results, but also to top this ranking. The Australian admitted that he is getting bored in the division and plans to move up to lightweight. We will follow the career of Alexander "The Great" very closely.
Tony Ferguson - 12 wins
First win in the series - October 19, 2013 (Mike Rio)
Last win in the series - June 8, 2019 (Donald Cerrone)
A real UFC legend Tony Ferguson has been taking out all of his opponents for almost six years, leaving them no chance. El Cucuy's winning streak began at UFC 166, which took place in October 2013. Tony entered the Octagon after losing to Michael Johnson and was determined to defeat Mike Rio. It took Ferguson only a couple of minutes to strangle his opponent with his favorite move, the Brabo choke.
Tony entered the peak of his career, and on October 7, 2017, was able to win the UFC interim lightweight belt by catching Kevin Lee in a triangle choke. The killer streak of 12 consecutive victories came to an end on May 9, 2020. At UFC 249 event, "El Cucuy" lost to Justin Gaethje by technical knockout.
Best victories in the streak: Edson Barboza, Rafael dos Anjos, Kevin Lee, Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone.
The 38-year-old Ferguson is in the final phase of his career. Tony never had a chance to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov and he became really disheartened after losing three fights in a row. On the night of May 8 all El Cucuy fans will be able to enjoy the performance of their favorite, who will face Michael Chandler at UFC 274. This may be the last fight of a spectacular fighter who has built a fine career in UFC.
Amanda Nunes - 12 wins
First win in the series - March 21, 2015 (Shayna Baszler)
Last win in the series - March 6, 2021 (Megan Anderson)
One of the strongest girls in MMA history, Amanda Nunes has been able to achieve amazing success in the UFC. Her win streak began in March 2015. At UFC Fight Night 62, The Lioness defeated Shayna Baszler by technical knockout, closing out a loss to Cat Zingano. Nunes would spend the next six years defeating her opponents and winning titles without a single loss.
On July 9, 2016, the Brazilian choked Miesha Tate at UFC 200 to become the new women's bantamweight champion. On December 29, 2018, Nunes brutally knocked out Cris Cyborg in the 51st second of their bout at UFC 232 to win the women's bantamweight title.
Amanda Nunes easily defeated her opponents in a domineering style and it seemed like it was going to stay that way for a while. But Julianna Peña was ready to challenge that. On December 11, 2021, Julianna defeated Nunes by submission, creating one of the loudest upsets in MMA in several years.
Best victories in the streak: Valentina Shevchenko (twice), Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm.
Nunes, 33, could have made it to the top of the list, but her complacency ruined her. Now Amanda is one of the main coaches in the next season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show. Julianna Peña will be waiting for her in the finale of it again. The Lioness will have a great opportunity to prove her superiority and start a new series of victories in this rematch.
Max Holloway - 13 wins
First win in the series - Jan. 4, 2014 (Will Chope)
Last win in the series - December 8, 2018 (Brian Ortega)
Who would have thought that Max Holloway, who has suffered two losses in a row, would have one of the most compelling winning streaks in the promotion's history? In January 2014, Max defeated Will Chope by TKO at UFC Fight Night 34 and began his ascent in the organization.
On December 10, 2016, "Blessed" defeated Anthony Pettis by TKO at UFC 206 to win the interim featherweight belt. Holloway knocked out Jose Aldo to win the champion belt six months later.
His ambition halted Max's impressive streak. On April 13, 2019, Holloway decided to move up to lightweight to fight Dustin Poirier for the interim title. The fight lasted five rounds, with the judges unanimously favoring Poirier.
Best victories in the streak: Jose Aldo (twice), Charles Oliveira, Brian Ortega, and Anthony Pettis.
The 30-year-old Holloway is currently on a two-fight winning streak. Max will most likely face Alex Volkanovski for the title in his next fight. This suggests that one of the winning streaks will be interrupted.
Demetrious Johnson- 13 wins
First win of the series - June 8, 2012 (Ian McCall)
Last series win - October 7, 2017 (Ray Borg)
Mighty Mouse is one of the UFC legends and the first fighter on today's list who is no longer on the roster. Johnson began walking the path of victories in 2012. On March 3, 2012, Demetrious fought Ian McCall in the semifinals of the UFC flyweight tournament, but the fight ended in a draw, and no winner was announced. On June 8 of that year, Demetrious defeated him by unanimous decision in the rematch. On September 22, 2012, the American defeated Joseph Benavidez by split decision at UFC 152 and won the title he held until 2018.
The epoch-making bout took place on August 4, 2018. Mighty Mouse lost by split decision to Henry Cejudo in a rematch held at UFC 227 and left the promotion after signing with ONE FC.
Best victories in the streak: Henry Cejudo, Joseph Benavidez (twice), Ali Bagautinov and John Dodson.
The 35-year-old Johnson continues to be an active competitor, and on March 26, 2022 he defeated Rodtang Jitmuangnon in an unusual bout at ONE: X. It was a mixed rules tournament (two rounds under MMA rules, two rounds under Muay Thai rules).
Jon Jones - 13 wins
First win in the series - March 21, 2010 (Brandon Vera)
Last series win - April 23, 2016 (Ovince Saint Preux)
The great and terrible Jon Jones could have been at the top of this list by now, but he has hurt both his life and his career with his "shenanigans".
In March, 2010, Jones TKO'd Brandon Vera and began a sweep of the light heavyweight division. On March 19, 2021, Jones defeated Mauricio Rua by TKO to win the championship belt. Jones would later lose the title after testing positive for clomifene and letrozole, but the American still managed to return to the top.
Jones' winning streak was interrupted not due to defeat, but due to stupidity. Jon knocked out Daniel Cormier in a rematch on July 29 at UFC 214, but after the fight it was discovered that Jones tested positive for metabolite and the result of the fight was changed to "failed."
Best victories in the streak: Daniel Cormier, Alexander Gustafsson (twice), Glover Teixeira, Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida.
Jon Jones is currently on a three-fight winning streak and is preparing to make his heavyweight debut. The return of the American will happen very soon.
Georges St-Pierre - 13 wins
First win in the series - August 25, 2007 (Josh Koscheck)
Last win in the series - November 4, 2017 (Michael Bisping)
The Canadian's winning streak started in August 2007. By that time, Georges had already become the promotion's welterweight champion twice and lost the title twice. At UFC 74, GSP won over Josh Koscek by decision.
On December 29, 2007, St-Pierre defeated Matt Hughes in a trilogy, via armbar at UFC 79 and won the interim welterweight title. In April 2008, the Canadian won the championship belt, defeating Matt Serra by TKO in a rematch. Georges never relinquished his title again until the end of his career. Moreover, on November 4, 2017, GSP returned to the Octagon after a four-year absence and defeated Michael Bisping to become the middleweight champion. After that victory, St-Pierre finally ended his professional career.
Best victories in the streak: Matt Hughes, Matt Serra, B.J. Penn, Carlos Condit, Nick Diaz and Michael Bisping.
The Canadian has had an amazing career in the UFC, becoming one of the greatest fighters in the history of the organization. Our only regret is that GSP has never had the fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov that every MMA fan has been waiting for.
Khabib Nurmagomedov - 13 wins
First win in the series - January 20, 2012 (Kamal Shalorus)
Last win in the series - October 24, 2020 (Justin Gaethje)
It's time to talk about the great fighter who became the first Russian UFC champion. The undefeated "Eagle" came to the UFC in 2012 and started with a choke hold victory over Kamal Shalorus. Khabib consistently defeated his opponents, and in 2018, he won the vacant UFC lightweight title by defeating Al Iaquinta by unanimous decision at UFC 223.
On October 24, 2020, Khabib once again defended his title by defeating Justin Gaethje by submission at UFC 254. After the fight, Nurmagomedov unexpectedly announced the end of his professional career. The management of the promotion tried to change Khabib's mind, but the Russian fighter did not change his decision.
Best victories in the streak: Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, Justin Gaethje, Rafael dos Anjos, Edson Barboza and Gleison Tibau.
Khabib Nurmagomedov, 33, could have continued his performances and improved his record, but he chose a different path. "Eagle" is now actively developing a variety of projects, including the Eagle FC promotion.
Kamaru Usman - 15 wins
First win in the series - July 12, 2015 (Hayder Hassan)
Last win in the series - November 6, 2021 (Colby Covington)
"The Nigerian Nightmare" opened his winning streak in UFC by defeating Hayder Hassan in The Ultimate Fighter finale in 2015. Four years later, Usman was able to win the welterweight title by defeating Tyron Woodley by unanimous decision at UFC 235, which took place on March 2, 2019. Kamaru is currently the dominant king of the welterweight division. Usman has defeated all the tops in his weight category, and some of them even twice.
Best victories in the streak: Colby Covington (twice), Jorge Masvidal (twice), Demian Maia, Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns.
Kamaru Usman is the leading candidate for the top spot in this rating. The fighter has only two wins left to top this list. It seems that only Khamzat Chimaev will be able to offer a worthy challenge to the "Nigerian Nightmare" in the nearest future.
Anderson Silva - 16 wins
First win in the series - June 28, 2006 (Chris Leben)
Last win in the series - October 13, 2012 (Stephan Bonnar)
The one and only "Spider" tops our list today. Silva came to UFC in 2006 and immediately fought Chris Leben in a pre-title bout at UFC Fight Night 5. The Brazilian knocked out his opponent with a knee strike in the 49th second of the first round. On October 14, 2006, Silva knocked out Rich Franklin and became the UFC middleweight champion. "Spider" held his title for almost seven years until he lost it to Chris Weidman at UFC 162 in July 2013.
Best victories in the streak: Chael Sonnen (twice), Demian Maia, Dan Henderson and Vitor Belfort.
Anderson Silva, 47, has already retired from MMA, but keeps practicing fighting. Now the legendary Brazilian fights in professional boxing. It is worth mentioning that on May 14, Silva will have his next bout, facing Bruno Machado. This showdown will be the co-main event of the boxing show in Dubai. This show's headliners are Floyd Mayweather and Don Moore.
In this piece, we have introduced the fighters with the most impressive winning streaks in UFC. Alex Volkanovski and Kamaru Usman could significantly improve their positions now. It is possible that soon this list will be updated with new names too.Bet on UFC with 1xBet
