Top 25 Most Jacked MMA Fighters

(Last Updated On: December 12, 2018)


12 Melvin Manhoef

Jacked mma fighter

Melvin has been in the MMA game for a long time. Consider he started his MMA career the same year Kendall Jenner was born (1995). That is a lot of brawling. He definitely has the physique for it. At 5’9″ weighing 170 lbs he benches 330 lbs.


11 Luke Rockhold

Most jacked mma

Yeah,  the current UFC Middleweight champion is ripped! He checks in a 6’3″ 185 lbs, super lean.


10 Yoel Romero

Jacked MMA fighter

Yoel is straight up jacked. At 5’10 and 185 lbs. No definite numbers on how much he can lift but let’s just say it’s a lot!


9 Houston Alexander


Houston is another one of the veterans on the list. Currently checking in at 43 years old. He is 6’3″ and 203 lbs. He is strong too, it has been said he can bench “as much as 450 lbs“, We are not really sure if we believe that claim but just look at him and there is no doubt he is strong.

6 Chad Mendes

Jacked MMA Fighter Chad Mendez

Mendes is another smaller fighter at 5′ 6″ 145 lbs. Nothing but muscle.


5 Bob Sapp

Bob Sapp

Bob Sapp is freaking HUGE! By far the biggest guy on the list at 6′ 4″ and 350 lbs. He is bigger than Chad Mendez and Gleison Tibau combined! Strangely enough, though his size has not translated into much success boasting a combined fight record of 22–35–1, most of those fights have been in Japan. He hasn’t fought in a couple years but is currently under contract with Rizin Fighting Federation.

Sapp is a fromer NFL football player who was drafted with the 69th pick overall in 1997, but his football career only lasted a few years. As a college football player, he had near a 600-pound bench press and at about a 750-, 800-pound squat. He also does pro wrestling and acting, with his size he is in demand.


4 Alistair Overeem

Alistair Overeem

Overeem is a beast who has been a top heavyweight contender for a while. He checks in at 6’5 and 247 lbs and he is jacked up. In this video clip you can see him deadlifting 250 Kilos (550 lbs) up some stairs. Not bad at all.

3 Jeff Monson

Jeff Monson

Jeff Monson wins the award for “Dudes I would not want to meet in a dark alley”. He is built like a fireplug at 5’9″ and 240 lbs. He is our oldest fighter on the list at 45 years old but he is still going strong. He doesn’t bench press anymore since his shoulder are beat up, he goes heavy with dumbbell bench presses instead.  Here is a pretty good video of him weight training.


2 Hector Lombard


Hector Lombard is the definition of jacked. He could easily be in the number one spot, to be honest. The 38-year-old is 5′ 9″ 185 lbs. We were unable to find any weightlifting stats on him online and even found a rumor that he doesn’t lift weights at all. If he really doesn’t lift weights I want some of those genetics.


1 Rousimar Palhares


Rousimar earns the top spot, this guy is a monster! He checks in at 5’9″ and 185 lbs. Here is a nice video of him doing his weight training. It’s hard to tell how much he is benching but you can tell it isn’t chump change. This guy is 100% badass.


There you have it, the best of the best when it comes to MMA muscle. These guys don’t shy away from training hard, neither should you.

Guys like Luke Rockhold, Yoel Romero, and others actually weigh far more than
185. They cut water weight to make that threshold and then they gain back 20+ lbs through rehydration by the night of the fight. Naturally they weigh about 215 lbs lean.
