Everyone makes mistakes. (And its not like Robbie Lawler hasn't KOed some fools)

MM might be the best offensive striker in mma

Please Joe silva, dont fuck this up. Pair him with strikers only, no wrestlers/BJJ.

He will win the fans and he will win his freedom!

His chin seems to be his only problem with striking in mma. That Lawler ko may be the definition of a hail mary ko too, Manhoef was destroying him before that. Not just winning or controlling the action, but destroying. Phone Post

No, he's not.  Not even in his weight class, not by far.

Really wish he had a rematch with Lawler. That was a sick fight.

I don't get this.  If you want to see Manhoef fight strikers only, why do you even want to see him in UFC, or MMA at all?  You could just follow his kickboxing career....

"I cannot say now which specifically I consider good. I can say that the best is Melvin Manhoef." - Melvin Manhoef via PVT


lol @ how he talks about himself in the third person.

Melvin is a damn beast though.
Would love to see him in the UFC.

There are elements to his striking that are definitely a class above anyone else in mma, without a doubt.

But he also lacks in certain area's, but in a sense that's almost what defines him.
He's just all poise and looking for the big shots.
And he's had success with it so can't exactly criticize.

Just like he beat Robbie Lawler (who's not nearly as good a striker as anyone on this list)?

He fights at WW now, but we'll go with this list.

MM has 3 TKO/ko losses...  25 KO wins (Some over hard hitting HW's)

Le has 11 fights and he has already been KOed twice, his style is unique, but a better striker than MM? No.

Sclemenko? 2x the fights as MM, and about the same amount of KO wins. But, I can see an arguement here, I don't agree, but I see the arguement.

Belcher? really? Belcher hasn't put away a striker with strikers in 7 years.... TKOed some grapplers, but still.

 

Belfort and Silva... Sure.

Yodsanan Sityodtong is hands down the best striker in MMA... ground game is another subject however.
