    Who do you think are the worst strikers in the UFC currently or in the past?

    I think Diego Sanchez is the worst striker today and of all time.

    Edit: Ok...Worst Strikers outside of CM Punk and the Women's Divisions.

    Phil Davis is probably the worst striker competing at an elite level in any UFC weight class right now.

    diego is the first one that comes to my mind. how many times did he connect against bj? bj's not that hard to hit, ffs.

    shields is pretty bad, but he's no longer in the ufc...

    I'd say that even with dudes like Phil Davis who look horrible on the feet, the worst strikers have to be most of the female ranks. Rin Nakai and Liz Carmouche are pretty bad.

    Clay is one of if not my favorite LW in the UFC. Striking however is not one of his fighting attributes that make me a fan of his.

    If Clay could strike, he could compete against even GOAT LW champion/ best striker in the division Pettis! Wait. . . .

    I'm not going to flat out say whether a fighters striking is bad but that being said Joe Lauzons striking just seems odd to me.

    Tim Kennedy, Patrick Cummins, Phil Davis

    Diego is not that bad of a striker. i mean, he held his own vs Kampmann, Melendez, Pearson and Gomi. whatever you say about those decisions, i thought he wasnt terribly outclassed

    Khabib has a very poor striking game for a #1 contender


    Cathal Pendred is one of the worst horrible to watch

    Sanchez would probably be a former LW champ if he could strike. He's always doing combos against thin air. If you watch his fight against Guida, he rocked Guida on the feet and then missed everything against a stationary opponent.

    Phil Davis, shown no improvement over the years and that depresses me
