In no particular order, here's a list of my 10 most intimidating looking UFC fighters. The key word here is UFC so don't be upset about Fedor Emelianenko or Andrei Arlovski not making the list since, after all, they're not in the UFC. Also, keep in mind that intimidating looks don't necessarily translate into victories. Forget about what these fighters have or have not accomplished inside the Octagon and just ask yourself, if you saw them out at a bar, do you think you could kick their ass? So in no particular order, here's my list of 10 UFC fighters that definitely garner a look that says, "I'm not to be messed with!"

  1. CHEICK KONGO
    Any man with the last name Kongo has to be respected. This guy has muscles on his face...literally! His size alone is enough to intimidate anyone. I don't think I've seen him smile too much and I definitely wouldn't tell him to crack one either.
  2. RAMEAU SOKOUDJOU
    With or without the Predator mask, Sokoudjou is definitely one scary guy to look at. At 6'0" and 205 lbs., he definitely looks a lot bigger than the light heavyweight division he fights in. Maybe it's just the wild dreadlocks, but his looks alone will get him out of a lot of uncomfortable situations.
  3. DAN HENDERSON
    Hendo has a look that just screams toughness. Maybe it's the way his face is structured or the fact that his nose looks like it's been broken more times than a Don King promise, but Henderson is one guy I would not pick a fight with. He hasn't had the best of luck in his return to the Octagon, but there's no shame in losing to Quinton Rampage Jackson or Anderson Silva.
  4. THIAGO SILVA
    As a pro, the undefeated light heavyweight is definitely kicking ass and taking names. He also looks like he's had his fair share of street fights as well. Stopping every opponent he's faced inside the Octagon, his post-fight throat slash directly into the camera gives off the look of man possessed. If you're looking for trouble, I don't think you'd have to look very far whenever Thiago is around.
  5. BROCK LESNAR
    Whether or not you think Lesnar will be successful in MMA, one thing clear...his presence is felt wherever he goes. Although his voice may not scare off little children, his stature alone definitely would. In short, the guy is freakin' huge! When it comes to intimidation, in his case, size does matter. 
  6. KEITH JARDINE
    "The Dean of Mean" looks like he belongs at haunted house during Halloween. The guy is just scary looking. Although Houston Alexander and Wanderlei Silva have proven he can be tamed inside the Octagon, if you ever ran across him in the streets, you'd probably give him your wallet. I don't know if it's the crazy look in his eyes or the devil goatee that he rocks, but Jardine is just a very scary looking dude. Maybe he has a future in horror flicks once his fighting days are over...no mask needed.
  7. MARVIN EASTMAN
    I think Eastman just might be one of the most intense fighters I've ever seen. If I didn't know any better, I'd probably be nervous to ask him for an interview. It makes you wonder, why is he always so mad? Does he suffer from Little Man's Syndrome or is he simply just a product of the hood? Whatever the reason, he's definitely a fierce-looking guy. Although he may not have the sturdiest of whiskers, he always come to fight and probably owns the title for most intense staredown. In this case, size doesn't matter as Eastman proves that you don't have to be a giant to look intimidating.
  8. QUINTON JACKSON
    Whether he's locked into an intense pre-fight staredown or howling at the moon during a post-fight celebration, Quinton Rampage Jackson definitely has a scowl that can intimidate any man, woman or child. Ironically, he's one of the funniest, laid-back guys you'll ever meet. Although he's known as a jokester, inside the Octagon, it's all business for Rampage, who's already gone to war with some of the biggest names in the sport, including Chuck Liddell, Wanderlei Silva, Dan Henderson, Matt Lindland, Mauricio Rua, Ricardo Arona and Kevin Randleman to name a few...all before his 30th birthday. The size of his noggin alone should discourage anyone from wanting to mess with him.
  9. CHUCK LIDDELL
    With his trademark mohawk and goatee, Liddell's look has intimidation written all over it. If he stepped on your shoe at the club, you'd probably find yourself apologizing to him. Don't let the sometimes present belly and laid-back demeanor fool you. The Iceman looks like a guy who enjoys fighting and has probably been kicked out of his fair share of clubs. Any guy who's willing to tattoo his own head is probably someone you should avoid pissing off.
  10. WANDERLEI SILVA
    In the words of Quinton Rampage Jackson, "Wanderlei Silva has cauliflower face." The Axe Murderer looks like a guy that's been in a lot, and I mean A LOT, of fights. Silva, who's competed in bare-knuckle, no-holds-barred fights, just looks like a guy who looks forward to a good ol' fashion ass whoopin'. He's one of those few guys who has a look that instantly lets you know that he's one guy not to be messed with.
My next 5 that just missed the list: Gabriel Gonzaga, Houston Alexander, Chris Leben, Shane Carwin and Heath Herring. 

There you have it...my 10 most intimidating looking UFC fighters. If you had never seen them before and didn't know their occupation, do you really think you'd approach any of them for a confrontation? I didn't think so! Feel free to leave a comment with your own opinion on who you think should have made the list. I know it might be hard for some of you, but try not to take it too seriously...this list is just for fun.
