Three of the UFC's most resilient fighters will be in action Saturday night at UFC 162.

Anderson Silva, Frankie Edgar and Mike Pierce are three of only eight fighters who have never been stopped in UFC careers lasting at least ten fights.

Silva tops the list by virtue of amassing a 16-fight winning streak to start his UFC career.

Edgar has had to endure much more adversity during his UFC tenure. Most famously, he weathered three knockdowns in the first round of his second fight with Gray Maynard, en route to a split draw.

Pierce's propensity to fight to decisions has helped him make this list, but hasn't done him any favours with the fans. As a result, Pierce is scheduled to fight on the Facebook portion of UFC 162, in spite of his 8-3 record within the UFC.
