    Barboza has a wide variety of kicks that will fuck you 12 kinds of up. Machida and Wonderboy should get a mention.

    Barboza is good, but can't fight moving backward, what really Justin do outside his low kicks?
    Wonderboy imo.

    I dunno if it's the best, but Robert Whittaker has a front kick that is super-effective when he mixes it in with all his other techniques. He used it expertly in the 2 Romero fights to keep Yoel at bay so he could keep fighting on the outside. It works brilliantly, and he really shoves his foot out there, so it must hurt at least a bit when it lands on the stomach

    In terms of effectiveness, Gaethje's kicks look damn good. Ok they're just low kicks and he loses his fights because he is a punching bag, but man, i'm pretty sure Alvarez and Poirier would'nt take this fight again for double the money because their thighs would say fuck it, we're done, and walk in the opposite direction of the cage.

    He certainly isn't the best, neither kicker nor fighter, but he made it to the UFC with kicks basically being his only form of effective offense...

    Cowboy, Jones and Millender for sneaky head kicks.
    Uriah Hall and Thiago Santos could be mentioned
