What qualities define the most attractive male UFC fighters who captivated audiences worldwide?

At a recent team gathering, we recognized the subjective aspect of discussing the hottest UFC fighters. To gather diverse opinions, we asked our readers to share their views on the hottest male mixed martial artist.

Read on to uncover the blend of charisma, strength, and appeal that sets these athletes apart.

The Most Handsome UFC Fighters

16. Ryan Bader

Training alongside Ryan Bader, I've felt the energy he brings to each session. His dedication and charisma are palpable, making him a standout both in and out of the ring.

Ranked number ten among the hottest UFC fighters, his handsome appearance adds a magnetic quality to his athletic achievements.

Having also participated in the Ultimate Fighting Championship's Light Heavyweight division, Bader's combination of strength, skill, and good looks makes him a compelling figure in the sport.

His ranking and titles are testaments to his allure, making him stand out not only for his victories but also for his undeniable handsomeness.

15. Tyron Woodley

Having sparred with Tyron Woodley, I've experienced firsthand his strategic mind and dynamic energy. Each session with him is a lesson in technique and strategy.

While his choice to focus on wrestling rather than kickboxing sets him apart in the ring, it's his handsome appearance that truly makes him stand out.

14. Thiago Moises

My journey to Brazil in 2012 was memorable, not just for the vibrant culture but also for witnessing a rising star, Thiago, who was setting the Ultimate Fighting Championship ablaze with his prowess. With a record of 15-5-0, his performance is as commendable as his striking appearance.

13. Devin Clark

Devin is an accomplished fighter in the light heavyweight division, and it's his chiseled abs that have got a lot of attention from our readers.

12. Makwan Amirkhani

Not only is Makwan Amirkhani our first featherweight UFC fighter, but he's also the first one from Finland on this list.

If you haven't watched it yet, then look up his 8-second knockout against Andy Ogle.

11. Kelvin Gastelum

Here's another American middleweight UFC star who has made quite a name for himself. He's from Arizona and has entered the big stage of UFC events in Las Vegas, Nevada.

10. Georges St-Pierre

For some reason, mixed martial arts isn't as big in Canada, but the country has produced our number ten ranked UFC star.

And his fighting success is as hot as his physical shape and handsome face.

9. A"Sexyama" Yoshihiro Akiyama

This Japanese mixed martial artist has been involved in UFC since 2009, and it's the combination of his looks and physique that have given him the nickname "Sexyama."

8. Paulo Costa

OK, here's our first UFC star from Brazil, and Paulo has had a lot of success as a middleweight fighter.

He's currently ranked #2 in the world and has a deserving spot considering the number of women that follow him.

7. Carlos Condit

OK, technically, Carlos Condit has retired, but the ABQ native with the nickname Natural Born Killer still has the looks to make it onto this list.

His last UFC event was in July 2021, and it's honestly a shame and loss for the sport.

6. Anthony "Showtime" Pettis

This former UFC champion has some unique fighting skills that have surprised many of his opponents.

That has resulted in 12 KOs and seven submissions with a possibly long career still ahead of him.

5. Roger Huerta

Known as "El Matador," Roger is a household name in UFC and a deserving fighter from the USA.

He has mainly fought in the lightweight division but has also dabbled in movies and modeling, showcasing his versatility and appeal beyond the confines of the octagon.

4. Alan Jouban

When you look at pictures of this American fighter, you wouldn't dream of seeing him at a UFC fight.

He has a very innocent boyish appearance but is a force to be reckoned with in the ring.

3. Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone

And speaking of smiles, Donald has probably got one of the most genuine ones I've ever seen at a UFC event.

Add to that the rugged and handsome appearance of a real cowboy, and there's every reason to have him at the top of this list.

2. Jon "Bones" Jones

With a winning streak of 17 consecutive fights, Jon Jones has proven himself countless times on the big stage in Las Vegas, Nevada.

What we heard in many comments from readers is that his smile outside of UFC is what attracts so many women.

1. Frank Mir

Frank Mir is one of the oldest UFC stars in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, but the 41-year old heavyweight seems to have made enough of a visual impression with our readers.

He also holds the record for most UFC submissions in the heavyweight category.
