    So, I've been thinking about who are the greatest ground and pound fighters in MMA history. I think this question has two different facets to it. Who are the most technical ground and pound fighters who helped evolve the game to a new level? And then who are the most powerful ground and pound fighters in terms of dealing damage because of their power and athleticism? Who did the best job of balancing maintaining positional control and guard passing with their ground and pound?

    So far Khabib Nurmagomedov, Jon Jones, Fedor Emelianenko, Matt Hughes, Georges St-Pierre, Frankie Edgar, Diego Sanchez, Cain Valesquez and Luke Rockhold stand out above the rest, but i'm sure I've missed many. Who do you think deserves to be mentioned?
