I'm gonna mark out and say that there is nothing more devastating than a Lidell flurry. Just awesome.

Who do you guys think?

CroCop and Anderson Silva are the best pure strikers.

Hardest hitting are Liddell, Hendo, Wandy, and Igor.
They all throw sloppy punches but when they connect it hurts...

Chuck Liddell is the best striker to ever fight in MMA. He picks his shots well and executes with devastating power.

IMO CroCop was the best striker, Igor was the most powerful.

Igor's striking isn't pretty but he was effective for a 5'8, 200 lb light heavyweight fighting heavyweights.

Liddell was probably the most successful striker in the cage.

Right now Anderson Silva is the best striker.

Shouldn't forget Gilbert Yvel who had 29 KO's out of 33 wins and also knocked out K-1 kickboxing champion Semmy Schilt! He is far from the best fighter in MMA but he might just be the dirtiest.

"Ice Cold" Igor Vovchanchyn, hands down.

Not discounting Kid Yamamoto, Aleksander Emelianenko, Mark Hunt, Pedro Rizzo, Vitor Belfort, Andrei Arlovski, Wanderlei Silva or CroCop and a few others I can't think of right now. Just so many great natural strikers from PRIDE.

Rizzo is great when he brings his "A" game. I can't believe all the posts for Liddell. His striking is looping and sloppy. Just because he hits hard doesnt mean he's the best pure striker...

maybe in the future - Jorge Masvidal

Jorge is great, I'd like to see him in the WEC or UFC....

I agree with Kaps its gotta be Crocop and Silva.


Cung Le deserves mention as well, he's still on the rise but he has brought a finess not seen before.

Some dumb**** in the lounge said my sig is a good example of how a boxer would counter a kick from an MMA guy, I had to mention that Yamamoto is entirely from a wrestling background.

Even a better example why he is a pure striker. He didn't even start out striking and he still has KTFO victories over most of his opponents.

For me the best pure strikers would be; prime CC, Anderson Silva, Bas Rutten, and Maurice Smith.

I forgot about Bas, he definitly was a quality striker. Maurice Smith is an other good one, one of the first real strikers to find success in MMA.

Crocop would be my best bet. He was phenomenal.

Best pure striker in MMA in my mind has to be Semmy Schilt. Look what he's accomplished in K-1. I don't think anyone in MMA could stand with him.

UFC - Anderson Silva
PRIDE - a prime CRO-COP

Alot of Chuck Liddell love in this thread but I think the best strikers are Igor Vovchanchyn, Semmy Schilt and Mirko Cro Cop to ever fight MMA. Anderson Silva is up there too.
