Martial Arts is a part of every culture in the world. Everyone likes martial arts but not many can master this art. Have you ever wondered who is the best fighter in the world that no one can defeat? Don’t know about you but I have. So, I got to some digging and it turns out that it is difficult to just nominate one. There are many different championships in many different fighting styles that determine a champion. Therefore, I decided to gather all the champions from different martial arts championships.
Usually each of the championship is also further divided into weight categories. The heaviest of weight is considered to be the strongest. I researched and gathered all world fighting championships in different martial arts and selected the most recent heavyweight champion. Thus here I present the best fighters in the world from all different martial arts in heavyweight category.
1 – WWE Raw Championship
Who doesn’t know wrestling? Every teen is a die-hard fan of wrestling championships. WWE is the biggest wrestling championship with two programs WWE Raw and SmackDown. In April 2, 2017, Brock Lesnar became the current best fighter in the world in wrestling by defeating Goldberg at WrestleMania 33.
2 – WWE SmackDown Championship
Just like WWE Raw, WWE SmackDown is also a world heavyweight wrestling championship. It was in November 7, 2017 that AJ Styles defeated Jinder Mahal on SmackDown Live and became current best fighter in the world of this category. We can’t be sure who is best AJ Styles or Brock Lesnar until we see them fighting each other.
