    Wonderboy = machida level counter striking + Whittaker level offensive level striking.
    He Completely tool'd great striker like masvidal,Rory, Whittaker and good striker like Hendricks.
    Other than Tj,no one can match wonderboy striking.sure you can say woodley but he got that takedown threat.

    He can't effectively strike moving forward

    Honestly, he's the best MMA adapted striker I've seen with my two eyes. Close second is prime Anderson, but Silva had a better ground game.

    Even GSP agrees with my assessment....

    Rumble is also in the conversation, based on sheer efficiency and brutal effectiveness.

    Anderson silva got dropped by sonnen, got beat by Chris weidman on feet and having hard time with rich franklin.
    Call me when he tool'd strikers like Rory, masvidal and Whittaker
    Plus he's a roider

    He lacks leg kicks, so not the most complete, but i can agree with most skilled.

    got tooled by Franklin, are you sure?

    Prime Hendo can KO any top strikers today.

    Silva is out of his prime the time the Chris disposed him.

    I think he is the most dynamic striker in MMA. He uses his angles well. He CAN strike moving forward, and backwards, and left to right. He hops in and out striking at awkward angles, throwing his opponents off rythym. He DOES attack his opponents legs, thighs, mid section and head with his kicks.
    I think he's faster and more explosive than Silva

    He already is, it just happened that majority of his previous opponent are afraid to engage with him due to his "invinsible" striking.

    But time passed him by.

    Plenty of reasons to hate the guy but the answer is Conor, all day long.

    The sport has never seen a big power, forward-moving, constantly pressuring, pinpoint accurate counter striker like McG. Watching the dude perform is like watching blood ballet.
