If Petr Yan counts, how is the answer not Khabib or Fedor?

Yan is from a part of the Russian Federation in Asia; Fedor and Khabib are from European parts of it.

Because neither of them are part Chinese? Yan is definitely Russian though don't get it twisted. This is who Dana was talking about when he said "I want killers"

Kid Yamamoto

For real, finished 5/6 of these guys, Royler, Uno, Sudo, Miyata, Bibiano, and Yahya all in a row while not losing for seven years.

Was one of the greatest undefeated runs in MMA history.

Zombie is awesome but he has had 11 fights in the past decade, went 6-5 in those fights. Right now he is a top FW and can beat anyone on a great night.

 

Laughable to talk about him as the best Asia has ever produced though.

He's probably the most fun to watch,  certainly one of the most loved on this side of the pond.  Previous poster raises an excellent question.

Mach Sakurai is my all time favorite.  Could one make an argument for him?

Prime Sakuraba, Gomi and Sakurai are hard to top but Kid and Sudo were amazing also.

 

shinya aoki has an impressive resume too

 

current Asians Horiguci probably takes that title

Takada and it's not even close. Tapped a prime Coleman with ease.
