Maurice Smith for bringing the first advanced kickboxing game to MMA supplemented by good jiujitsu defense.

Frank Shamrock for bringing it all full circle with good jiujitsu, good wrestling, good striking and excellent cardio.

Every fighter after these four is just a variation on what has already come before - IMHO.
