7. Emmanuel Yarborough

Height: 6’7″

Weight: 600 pounds (270 KG)

MMA Record: 1-2

Another addition to the circus that deserves some credit before we slate his dark side: Yarborogh was a NCAA Division I All-American in wrestling and football, and has a sizeable amateur career in Sumo wresting. On the other hand, this guys was not cut out for mixed martial arts even during the dark ages. First competing at UFC 3, the first big league offender on the list, ‘Manny’ got destroyed by Keith Hackney in a one-sided and retrospectively laughable affair.

His sole win came at ‘Shoot The Shooto XX’ (no, seriously) against Tatsuaki Nakano, in the form of a submission win by smothering. He would later go on to get pounded on at Pride 3 by Daiju Takase. Enjoy Yarborough’s most famous achievement in MMA, as he smothers a small Asian man to submission:
