    KOd prime Cogar 2X, prime Barao 2X, outstruck prime Lineker and arguably outstruck primeish Cruz. Got KOd by Triple C in his last fight. What do you think?

    Hard to say as his defence is very poor.

    his defense is better than most strikers in MMA IMO. That performance on Barao was super impressive.

    He is getting constanly tagged with the right hand...watch it


    But his offense is as good as it comes..
    Sure he doped...
    And is a bully and dickhead...
    But he is fucking great to watch in the cage...

    Francis deserves to be there for pure effectiveness imo

    Obviously his technique isn't even top 500 but he utilises his physical advantages very well

    The first one? Yea that was crazy, was a massive upset at the time but looking back at it TJ matched up so well with him.

    God damn barao fell hard after that fight.

    true, he matched up well with him, but I think a big part of that was that he was moving his head well and fighting in a super mobile way. I think that has to be accounted for when we're talking defense, especially since defense in MMA is usually pretty shit generally speaking.

    still, an unbelievable win. I remember having a weird feeling in my gut that we'd see an upset that night, but I was just like "nah, no way."

    Gane is a better striker than Ngannou. Also how is TJ on your list but not Cruz?

    Top 5, you can't make any logical argument he isn't top 5

    In my personal opinion he's top 3

    All of them would destroy the bum in your AV <Lmaoo>
    "Greater" not "better" being the key word here

    Gane's beaten 2 good guys so far

    The best TJ > the best Cruz; and their Garbrandt fights play a huge role in this equation. Cruz also never beat Barao, let alone twice
