    As the title asks: My initial picks would be Max Holloway and Tony Ferguson. Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Rose Namajunas both have nice footwork.

    Thoughts?

    Others would be Dom Cruz and Aldo.

    Max and Aldo. Yan's footwork looks great, too, but I need to see more from him.

    Adesanya has nice movement. I think Robert and kelvin both have great movement too. Kelvin is always at a height disadvantage, he uses footwork to evade high shots and get low to deliver devastating power shots. Fucking beautiful to watch.

    Tony Ferguson plodding..? When have you seen a plodding break dancer? Tony incorporates a lot of break dance moves in his fighting and makes it work, plodding is not a word I would use for Tony...

    Well yeah, Loma makes Iaquinta, Cruz, Dillashaw, Dj and every other MMA fighter look amateur when it comes to footwork. He has the most evasive footwork whilst also being extremely efficient. He doesn't over emphasize and over-do it like Cruz, he also has excellent shot selection.

    Usyk has some excellent footwork too.
