    Who is it in your opinion? The most orthodox fighter ever, that never does anything crazy and all his moves are basically what you would call " mma striking" and grappling. For me its either stipe miocic or volkanovski, can't remember more traditional fighters than this two

    i remember when Mark Hominick was fighting, Joe described his striking as "textbook" so i guess that's by the book?

    I always found Sarah Kaufman to be the ultimate "by the book" fighter.

    Chris Leben? Whenever I think of ultimate “UFC bro” types he’s the one that sticks out the most. Maybe Forrest as well.

    Michael Bisping, he came up through TUF which is a “paved path”

    Probably Franklin or Bisping. I've seen a lot of their fights, and I never once saw either guy do a flying or spinning anything, nor do have they ever tried any crazy submissions. Stipe fits in this category too, but I think he uses an even smaller arsenal of skills.
