    Frankie/hendo/couture are all in the running, Weidman may be the highlander though. Time will twll after his next couple of matches.

    This is tough. I'd favor Frankie, Rashad, and GSP for being the best overall combining of the skills. Tough to pick just one since they are all at different weight classes. As for a wrestler with sick power in his boxing, that's easily Hendo.

    I overlooked Weidman. He's odd because his striking looks so awkward, but it doesn't matter because it's so effective. He chains boxing and wresting together quite seamlessly. Anyone that is still wondering if he's really that good...stop wondering.

    I think calling Weidman a wrestler-boxer is selling him short.

    GSP has that Kyokushin style of kickboxing, I think he throws too many kicks to be considered for this category. Same with Dillashaw, he throws a ton of kicks.

    I'll throw Rampage into the mix.

    Paul Berlenbach (link).

    Ring Magazine voted him #93 of the 100 hardest punchers of all time.
