    If we were talking Muay Thai, the list would look much different.

    Can a mod make a poll for this? We can tally the top 3 for the forum? I don't have a plat account anymore otherwise I'd make a thread.

    Why everyone up on Petro's nuts the only difference between him and someone like Benny Urquidez is Petrosyan didn't have the WKA around to help protect him.

    He beat Souwer 2 times. Also got wins over Kiria, Roosmalen, Pinca, Kyshenko, Zambidis, Kraus, Sudsakorn, Kem... and other great fighters without being in danger in most of the fights. I don't know any fighter with a more consistent fight record in kickboxing.

    You are just hating.

    He fought both Kem and Suds when they might have had one kickboxing match between them and his fight with Suds fucked up a good tournament. He beat Zambidis and Kraus after their good years where Kraus forgot how to throw anything but punches and Mike was worn down. Pinca is a 67kg fighter and RVR should've been fighting that weight. He showed up at the right time thats all and then proceeded to cherry pick.
