The biggest Asian MMA star ever? That is a big IF, but bear with me here and indulge me with your pick on biggest Asian MMA star. Here's my top 5:
1. Benson Henderson - current lightweight champion. Korean descent.
2. Lyoto Machida - former light heavyweight champion. Japanese descent.
3. Hidehiko Yoshida - Gold Medalist judoka, 1996 Barcelona Olympic Games
4. Yushin Okami - former middleweight title challenger. Largest current Asian on UFC roster
5. Hong Man Choi - Techno Goliath/Korean Colossus. Before you laugh at this, understand that he is a legit athlete. He was a super heavyweight champion in the Korean grappling sport of Sserum. He has kick boxed. Wrestled. Fought the best ever heavyweight in Fedor. And all around good guy.
