    Just came across the awesome video this morning and it had me wondering, who do you think has the best Gaurd currently in MMA?

    Tony is definitely a top pick and I wonder how his bottom style will work against Khabib.

    Bryce Mitchell has a very strong williams guard. I'm going with him.

    The williams guard is very underutilized in MMA, even though Jacare got decimated by Hermansson attempting it.

    For filthy casuals, this is a williams guard:

    Dean Lister infamously used this position to submit Sakara.

    Carlos Condit had a pretty sick guard.

    Was always working for something or attacking, never just sat there.

    Khabib does have a good guard. Abel Trujillo took him down and Khabib instantly triangled him.

    Pretty much, those who are still around aren't what they were physically either.

    Kenny Florian had a brutal *guard
    Condit, Ferguson, Nate Diaz....all guys who are like trying to pin down a hornets nest.

    Paul Sass is my personal favorite. His triangle game definitely had a huge impact on my approach to guard
