According to the numbers isn't it Islam?
The guy who put people in the matrix and turned their lives upside down until he was almost 40.
It is mostly because Islam will get you down = you can't really hit him from the bottom.
Though he is a good counterstriker imo
Prolly Jones and Khabib, both have GOAT chin too if they do get hit
Dustin porier has a wide margin of defensive options due to his stone wall guard and philly shell.
Izzy or Jones.
Not saying that Rampage was superior in the striking defense art, but that was beautiful. First thing that popped up when I read the title.
Doesn’t make him any less a brilliant defensive striker when he needs to be.
The best defense is a good offense.
Jan showed a good striking defense, parrying Izzy in their last fight.
Flashiest is Silva. Most unique is Cruz. simply best at not getting hit clean is Khabib and GSP.
Mousasi has a 68% striking defense.
Jon Jones 64%
Cruz deserves a mention. He was super slick before the Cody fight
Its gotta be Khabib. Incredible guy.
Cruz and GSP probs.
Cruz and Fedor are the first that come to mind in terms of ability to slip punchs.
Poirier is very underrated, he even nullified Justin dirty kicks.
