    Jon Jones punches like a girl, but has deadly elbows, knees, and kicks and everything else

    If Jones never popped i'd say him. Longest reach in the UFC, talented, spars with great strikers and still can't throw a jab to save his life.

    Was going to say Maia but I believe he was getting the better of Shields on the feet...so Shields.

    Been a long time since I've seen that fight though.

    I love Matt Hughes but he might also qualify for terrible boxing. And he was the WW GOAT before GSP took it to the next level.

    Jones had pretty below average boxing. He was just tall, had good kicks and good cardio.

    Ortiz is a LHW top 5 and he was shit. Randy was a good dirty boxer but shit stand up. Sylvia.

    I think he did a great progress in his boxing for his last fight
    Even me, as non-educated in boxing, could notice it, so I think it's a thing.

    Cormier's boxing seems pretty solid for a guy 1/2 a foot shorter than his peers. lol
