Freddy Roach has vouched for his skills.
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'.
Im gonna say Brock Lesnar for a laugh. His striking was truly woeful.
How many Pride:UFC belts or contender fights did he have... 1?
He's got great foot work and angles. He is not shit at boxing.
Cruz is a strange one he has really bad striking in general that works.
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.
He had decent GnP.
Pounded out Joe Charles and Oleg Taktarov.

I don't see how you can possibly argue that Shields is not a WW top 5 of all time.
Original WW goat matt hughes
The man who said that "A KO is an accident" is a no-brainer...
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.
We are on page 3 and this hasn't been posted yet
Yeah mma striking wise he has good boxing also he had the threat of the takedown so a lot of people were hestitant to open up their striking against him
