Naughty Gorilla - How the fuck did BJ get so many votes? If he's the best, what does that make Diaz, GSP, Frankie? Who all boxed him up? Oh but his technique.. gimme a break

Bobby Lupo - 

It's Anderson Silva, followed by Juanito trained Rampage, for me. He was a brilliant counter puncher, who actually kept his hands up and, ya know, defended himself, not playing the barroom brawler game.

There isn't a single MMA fighter with pro boxing experience (even my homie Sakara) that was any good at boxing. If they were, they wouldn't be fighting MMA. At best, some MMA guys beat some lesser ham and eggers in boxing matches.

There are MMA guys with nice offensive boxing (Diaz, Sakara, Pearson, Pickett, Corberry, Noons, Pulver, Penn, Daley, Gomi, Edgar, Nogs, JDS, etc.) but they get hit too much, way too much


Bobby come on mate , JDSs long range boxing is fantastic to watch ,he lands then is in an out with the best footwork i have ever seen in a cage .
JDS has to be up there .

Rewatch: Gomi X Diaz, JDS X Cain and BJ X Nick

I recall BJ beating Nick in R1 though Nick is like Mayweather and always adusts later on but it ws quite evident that size was a huge factor in that fight, just as it was vs Rory.

Gomi was a brawler, not a great boxer at all though also outsized by Diaz.

Cain, while showing holes in JDS's game, didnt beat JDS in a boxing match, he beat him with boxing and wrestling.

You think Juanito Rampage beats Pride Wand? Its often overlooked that the beginning of the end of the 2nd fight was Wand's hands and then the clinch but it started with Wand connecting with a punch.

Though Andy is a complete MMA striker, his hands are still top flight.

BJ did win RD.1 but it was more about the TD, ground play and control. Overall Diaz landed over 2X as many shots in the fight than Penn.

I named AS here as an easy pick saying again his defensive boxing putting him way on top. Looking at JDS VS Cain, he failed to circle, create any angles at all or even seek to counter. The man moved straight TF backwards. I was dumbfounded but that shit happened (to the chagrin of me and my wallet). I had praised JDS and argued that he'd keep PRIMe Fedor off him by circling and using his superior boxing with 1ers. I had to retract....

Cruz definitely needs a mention. Even though I think Barao will destroy him, I haven't seen footwork like that since Ray Robinson. Phone Post

Are you saying BJ didnt outbox Nick in R1?

I think we'll need to see if JDS comes back strong and if that one fight was an anomolie or if those holes are real. I guess a rubber match with Cain would be the most telling.

Nexuscrawlers -

i think it depends heavily on how you think of technique vs effectiveness.

the best MMA Boxer technique-wise, may not be the most effective MMA boxer.

This. Absolutely. Phone Post 3.0

Wow...I'm happy to add a decent thread to the site. I've been a member since '11 by have not started posting until recently. Thanks to all you guys for the input/debate.
Oh yeah I still say JDS Penn and Silva are all debatable with a few other names as well. Phone Post 3.0
