    A fighter who actually have competed in muay thai, and had success in MMA just as much if not more.

    AS much as I dislike Anderson Silva, I guess it's kinda hard to say he's not the guy.

    In strict Muay Thai, who knows. Saki is pretty good.

    Anderson is not even close to the best, show me one majot MT title he's won or even one name hes beaten. It's probably Dejdamrong, he's held Lumpinee titles and was a champ in One

    Conor McGregor knocks muay thai fighters silly. So take that how you will.

    Most MMA fighters have never really competed in traditional muay Thai. I assume we'd really need to include kick boxing here to form a better opinion, and so I'd mention some of my favorites:

    Cerrone
    Wanderlei
    Manhoef
