39. Stefan Struve
In the eyes of many UFC fans, Struve is a cult hero. That is because ‘The Skyscraper’ is such a massive individual. The Dutch star is seven feet tall and is also the tallest fighter in the history of the promotion. However, he retired in 2021 after health complications. Struve began his MMA career at the age of 17 so it feels like he was around the sport from the very beginning.
He even has a TKO victory over the greatest UFC heavyweight in history, Stipe Miocic. However, Struve was never able to use his ridiculous reach to full effect. If he had managed to achieve better use of his distance, he could have been something special. Still, there was always intrigue whenever he fought, because he presented a unique challenge to every opponent. In sum, he is definitely larger-than-life.
