    Who is it? Whose game is the most complete in arguably the most talent filled division in MMA?

    (C) McGregor?
    Stand up: Hand speed, probably best one shot power at LW, accuracy, timing, pressure, and solid footwork.
    Ground: Perhaps not elite but ever improving. Showed good tdd in last bout.

    (1.) Nurmagomadov?
    Stand up: Packs a lot of power in a single shot but lacks crisp combos and technicality. Used primarily to get close to his opponent.
    Ground: Sambo and takedowns are second to none in LW, top pressure is suffocating, transission game is strong, great ground and pound, good at submissions.

    (2.) Ferguson?
    Stand up: Lengthy fighter, pushes the pace, unpredictable, and very solid jab. Very hittable for guys with elite footwork but chin and tenacity is great.
    Ground: College wrestler with very slick submissions.

    (3.) Alvarez?
    Stand up: Head movement, lateral movement, power, good boxing fundamentals yet is easily coaxed into brawls at times which leaves his opponent with openings.
    Ground: Solid jiu jitsu, high school wrestler, strong in clinch which leads to takedowns, strong on top.

    (4.) Dos Anjos?
    Stand up: Very good one strike KO power, great muay Thai, good chin
    Ground: 5th degree BJJ black belt, pretty good MMA wrestling, strength

    (5.) Diaz?
    Stand up: Very solid boxing skills, great 1-2 combinations, keeps a good pace, great chin, long reach, but succeptable to leg kicks
    Ground: Black belt in BJJ, dangerous anywhere on the ground, not great at takedowns but can get a trip/throw occasionally

    It doesn't have to be one of the 6 fighters mentioned above, but who do you consider the most well rounded current LW?

    I don't follow LW that closely, but aren't the first two guys on your list generally considered specialists?

    Diaz. Conor is just a paper champion.

    Most well rounded? RDA and Alvarez.

    All due respect, but... Jack of all trades, masters of none. The both of them.

    Well rounded I'd say Ferguson, doesn't seem uncomfortable wherever the fight goes

    Ferguson, not even close

    But I think that being great at one thing is better than being complete. When you're really good at something, you just need to get good at the rest, don't even need to be complete and you still are going to be be at the top.

    RDA is the most well rounded.

    He just isn't the best at anything.

    Ferguson, RDA, Alvarez, and Diaz are all very well rounded.

    Conor and Khabib excel very well at one skill set.

    I'm going with Ferguson or Diaz. If Diaz fought smart, he would win so many more fights.

    Did you need to put in those huge pictures in case shertards don't know a fighter by their name?
