    Who are the current fighters with the highest Fight IQ and why?

    How do you recognize fight IQ?
    What is the definition of fight IQ?
    What are the criteria of fight IQ?

    Who fits into this?
    Who are the talents who have this and will be successful in the future?

    I changed my comment. Everyone can write the definition and criteria.
    It's subjective to recognize in a fighter.

    The most intelligent people I know are the ones who avoid Sherdog.

    Jones GSP top two and then probably Khabib close 3rd. I mean in Jones and GSP i think it is easily their best attribute.

    Khabib without a doubt. Nobody was dominant as he and the guy had nothing on his face after each fight.....

    Which had almost nothing to do with his fight IQ and everything with his grappling being about 3 levels above everyone he faced.

    edit: nvm, his grappling being so good is obviously a part of fight IQ
