    From what I remember Gannicus had a killer instinct, so that puts GSP off the table

    Maybe Cain, but different body type

    GSP is solid all around. That quick jab is lethal. :icon_arro

    GSP and Evans. However, I think the term 'boxing' is used very loosely for MMA fighters. People still think Diaz is a good 'boxer' :redface:

    Rampage? The question was in the present tense.

    if you had great boxing, you wouldn't need great takedowns.

    You would if you prefer to fight to your opponent's weaknesses, instead of your strengths.

    To answer the question: GSP, Bendo, and Cain all come to mind.

    Big Benson fan but his boxing is really not that good. To answer the question I would say Rashad.
