    Matt Hughes, welterweight champ of his era but he never had any boxing/striking skills that made a difference.

    I got Hughes in my top 10 all-time and he's easily the worst boxer/striker of the bunch. Jones doesn't have good boxing either, but it's still way above Hughes'.

    Yeah, people keep wanting to compare MMA boxing to pure boxing. It's like GSP. He has a good jab, superman punches, pretty good movement, a long reach and a very big TD threat (which makes other fighters less aggressive). That makes his MMA boxing quite good, even if he has very little KO power.

    The man has to sell his product. What was the "statistic" back in the day that they spouted? I think it was something like 95% of fights end up on the ground or something like that.
