    I'm a huge fan of fighters who utilize the jab to win fights. In boxing, it's a standard rule of thumb that the jab is the most important punch in your arsenal. So my question is, who in the UFC currently has the best Jab? If GSP was still fighting I would say him. Nate diaz has an okay jab, but it's kind of lazy. Discuss.

    I would have said GSP as well, the only one I can think of who had a good one.

    I'm a huge cruz fan. But I think cruzes boxing in general is not very good. Cruz wins fights from his superior movement, but his Orthodox boxing strikes such as jab, hook etc are not up to stuff.

    Might be a bit biased but I think Whittaker's jab is on point

    While powerful, I feel Edgar's striking is sloppy. When I watch him punching in slow mo it reminds me of rousey weirdly. His jab is decent that said but not one I'd call great.
