    GSP didn't have much power in his punches, but he was actually a very technical boxer. More so than most MMA fighters.

    I agree with you, that Shields is top 5. But, the Okami win especially, has a serious asterisk next to it.

    GSP had great footwork and angles by MMA standards. Even mentioning GSP makes you look like a moron. Every MMA fighter has weak Boxing that can be picked apart. GSPs is still much better then most great MMA fighters

    Hughes is the correct answer

    I actually didnt really like it, even back in the days.. A total physical mismatch, and it was the 1st, and maybe the last, time I really feared for the guy´s safety.

    He was taking more punches from DC then the first fight. What specifically about his boxing looked better?

    No disrespect, but shinya aoki has mediocre striking.


    He is an elite fighter though.

    Maia hands down. And he showed us once again why vs Woodley.
