    I remember GSP hitting Jake Shields with a jab that knocked him half way across the cage.

    Uh... your "sources" said "the lead fist is thrown straight ahead and the arm is fully extended". Nicks fist was NOT thrown straight ahead it was thrown on an angle. Also Nicks arm was NOT fully extended, it was bent the whole time. Its not a jab buddy. Even by your "sources" its not a jab. Try learning what basic fucking strikes are. You think its a coincidence that everyone but that idiot "Walker Smith Jr" (who's reason was because Nicks body rotated lol) said it was a hook?

    His body didn't rotate enough to indicate that it's hook. Stop acting smart on internet forum and go take some boxing classes, "mma expert".

    I agree, GSP is the most privileged fighter in MMA history.

    Wasnt even a strong jab. The stars just aligned for that jab to hurt him lol. Edson was whooping his ass too. Bad luck.

    An argument can be made that it wasnt a jab but rather a straight because he threw the punch after his right foot became his back leg.

    I think that's where some people seem to be confused. You can still throw a jab while walking backwards though. His right still seems to be his lead hand as well

    It wasn't even really accumulated damage. Kos's orbital was busted early in the first from a jab.

    I misread the thread title initially and posted who I thought used the jab the best...

    but the best single Jab ever thrown? Has to be a fight changing one like the ones already posted and mentioned.

    Cerrone/Barboza
    Kimbo/Petruzelli
    Anderson/Forrest (was that considered a jab or just a random Anderson Silva strike?)

    Personally I like the Cerrone vs Barboza jab the best just because no arguement can be made that it wasnt indeed a jab and also.... it dropped Barboza and led to the finish
