Any list that has Dana White and Brock Lesnar listed above Gilbert Yvel loses all credibility.
Ricco shouldn't be #1 imo (especially considering his prime was in 2002) and a lot of guys have done bad things and are not on this list - steriods, narcotics, punching a cop, greasing, . . .
Has driven away Randy Couture, Andre Arlovski, and Tito Ortiz with his disrespect and hardball negotiation tactics, and sunk any chance of a deal with Fedor Emelianenko. Along with the Fertitta brothers, he bought legendary Japanese fight league PRIDE only to dismantle it. Is one of the most public faces of MMA, but poorly represents the sport with his profanity laced tirades, shabby wardrobe, and bald head. Will never, ever give us press passes to UFC events.
4. MELVIN COSTA
Offenses: Spent most of his young adulthood in jail due to multiple arrests for assault and burglary. Discovered White Nationalism in prison, and proudly sports a swastika tattoo on his chest that's clearly visible during his fights for King of the Cage.
Notable quote: "Maybe I'll stop wearing a swastika on my chest when we have a white heritage month. Until then I'm proud to be white and that's pretty much all that needs to be said…I believe in Hitler's point of view as far as racial consonance."
Im starting to think snakerattle is claudale.
Costa has to be #1. Either Ricco or Yvel could make a legit claim to #2.
Kyle certainly deserves a high mark. Costa and Ricco better fit the bill out of the ring/cage, and Kyle and Yvel get higher marks for being despicable in the cage. These are a solid top 4, IMO, and is a little like splitting hairs to order them. The white supremacist thing keeps Costa at 1 for me though, and what Ricco did with his girl and the car keeps him as the front runner for #2. Its a little like arguing who the greatest baseball player of all time is. Strong cases can be made for a handful of people.
