    Fighting any professional MMA fighter is scary and you will most likely get destroyed, but some fighters just have that 'don't mess with me aura" more than others. Example, GSP is one of the GOATS, but I don't think he would be that scary and dangerous in a street fight compared to someone like Mike Tyson or Jon Jones.

    Here are my picks of guys who I would never want to fight in a street fight
    -Jon Jones - Roided up (so he could easily get roid rage), 6'4 of pure muscle, one of the most talented and has a wide arsenal of weapons (kicks, wrestling, strength advantage, long reach). He is also likely a psychopath considering his past criminal history so he won't hesitate to inflict damage to you.
    -Khabib - not the biggest guy around, but seeing him tell Conor "Come here. Send a message" with those serial killer eyes, then pounding the life out of Conor, and almost refusing to let go of Conor getting his neck cranked was scary.
    -Francis Ngannou - One punch can probably kill you. But he seems like a nice person who will stop hitting you because he feels sorry for you
    -Alistair Overeem, those beastly legs are dangerous
    -Greg Hardy. 6'5, also, if he won't hesitate to hit a woman, imagine what he would do to a guy
    -Brock Lesnar. He can probably break your neck and rip your head off with his arms

    For the lighter divisions, Conor would probably be deadly if you can't take him to the ground, and guys like Rampage Jackson would rip your limbs off

    The correct answer to this thread is found by considering the circumstances. Given that virtually any high level MMA fighter is going to be deadly dangerous to the average joe, picking top level guys on the basis of their skills is redundant. What you have to ask yourself is which guy would be most likely to rip your head off in a fit of homicidal rage in a dark alley. My personal pick for guy I'd like to least fight is this dude:

    Armed robbery, certifiably insane, 150kg, escaped from sanitarium by ripping a chain link fence open bare handed, suffering from delusions and notoriously wild in the ring.

    You really think an MMA fighter can kill with one punch? What in an average person`s head or skull would make them more likely to suffer from a brain injury than an MMA fighter?

    The hardest punchers, top heavyweights.

    Most people who get killed in street fights don't die from the blow itself but from the back of their head hitting the pavement in free fall after already being knocked unconscious.

    I think Francis Ngannou can kill with one punch if the opponent is at a lower weight class

    But in most cases, serious brain injury is a high probability.

    Rousimar Palhares - a psychotic, roided-up leg lock specialist that's been fired from multiple organizations for refusing to accept his opponent's taps. If he has such disregard for people in a competitive setting and derives unusual satisfaction from ripping their knees apart, I'd hate to see him in a no holds barred street fight.
