    Who do you believe has the best kicks in MMA history?

    Silva? Silva was an excellent striker in general. But when I think kicks, I don't think Silva. Adesanya has much better kicks.
    To answer your question: Mirko Cro Cop, Bas, Barboza, Wonderboy, Holly Holm, Yair, Pettis in his prime as well. I'd also add Cerrone in there. His kicks were/are deadly at all levels. Leg kicks brutal, body kicks insane, head kicks...hospital.

    Yeah he did. He definitely did. Took out Hughes with it the second time, didn't he? But once again, his kicks were lethal and often from the lead leg and super kick, but when I think of kicks, there are others who come to mind. BUT GSP was just awesome at everything. He's literally that videogame character whose stats are 8.5 in everything.

    Of people not already mentioned I'd throw Pettis when he's on the front foot in there.

    Dennis Siver really had a devastating spinning back kick, best one in the game.
