    Ebersole's stand-up is best described as Goofy Fu.

    Anderson Silva's movements are like water, and GSP makes some very good decisions in the Octagon

    This dude changes levels more than an elevator.

    I was going to say Jardine, but then I re-read the topic and you mentioned 'effectively'.

    Jones has been highly effective with unorthodox strikes/technique.

    Pettis and his off the cage attacks are incredible.

    Obviously lyoto and Anderson are up there. So is Kikuno

    I don't think that jones style is that unorthodox anymore.

    Machida, obviously, but Bendo also comes to mind. And I think the Diaz brother's style is unorthodox for MMA. It reminds me of the old bareknuckle boxing style.

    Chris Leben he doesn't fight like a brawler... he fights worse but has managed to get a ton of wins. like a leonard garcia who actually takes your head off.
