The UFC has given us some of the most outlandish characters the world of professional sports has ever seen. As a consequence, there are quite a few fighters (past and present) whose careers would make a fascinating film.

Sure, there have been several documentaries that have given us an in-depth look at the day-to-day lives of some of our favorite mixed martial artists. However, surprisingly, there hasn't been a major Hollywood production that focuses on the UFC or any of the superstars it's helped create over the years.

So, to get the ball rolling, we are going to give Hollywood casting agents a helping hand and select some actors and actresses who would be perfect to play our favorite UFC fighters.

This list will feature A-listers, well known supporting actors, and a few high profile television stars as well. There are enough options provided to make several UFC-based films about either individual fighters or the promotion as a whole.

With that in mind, here are ten actors who would be ideal candidates to portray some of the biggest names to ever set foot inside a UFC Octagon.
