    Ferguson and Jones comes to mind, but who else? Who is smooth and slick with it? Standing, not ground and pound.

    Kenny Florian was using his elbows near perfect

    Jones when he grounds and pounds with those elbows is BRUTAL.

    I remember when he broke Vera's orbital with a clean elbow while he was on top. It was naaaasty. Vera immediately wanted out the moment it landed.

    My boy Ferg is a close second though.

    Jones but he rarely uses them these days
    It's like mentioning Aldo among the best leg kickers

    I know Jones uses them good, but my first choice is Matt Brown.

    And yeah, you need to be specific: standing or on the ground.

    Old school Tito had good elbows from guard. Jordan Mein and Matt Brown have brutal standing elbows.

    Anderson Silva, Carlos Condit, Bisping (against GSP), Gegard Mousasi are among many who have used elbows from the bottom successfully.

    And of course Anderson has that upercut elbow in Cage Rage.

    That's who I thought of right away. David would slice people up. Jones and Ferg prolly currently.

    I’m not a Conor fan, nor do I consider him to have the best standing elbows, but I have to say that his progress in that area has been pretty good. That Irish MT guy he has at SBG might be low level but he’s clearly opened up his mind to stuff.
