Bas Rutten.

While many fighters threw strikes, they always didn't put so much thought behind them. Bas always made his strikes count. On his career DVD, he talks about watching a fighters breathing pattern before striking. That is just calculating. When Bas hit you, you knew it, and you were either clutching your liver or out cold.

Precise and powerful.

My vote goes to Bas too, very versatile. I watched Pancrase fights that he ended with palm strikes. Today Mark Hunt has to be considered for the power he has in his hands and percision. Anderson Silva is the most versatile striker.

Mirko wasn't even that much of a badass in K1. He just adapted to MMA real well. I wouldn't say he's the best kickboxing striker at all.

Who is the best striker ever? Interesting question... This one is going to get a wide variety of replies, but their is a plethora of deserving fighters in each sport that could contend. Let me offer this for your consideration:

Boxing: "Sugar" Ray Robinson was the archaetype for many modern boxers even before the advent of Ali's career. He was lightning quick, deadly accurate, had knockout power in both hands, and was very slippery when he needed to be. His total 202 professional fights garnered him a record of 175 Wins (108 by KO), 19 Losses, 6 Draws and 2 No Contests. He was one of the most prolific of Knock Out Artists in existance, and created a benchmark within the "Sweet Science" that many fighters aspire to attain. You can see some of his handiwork here.

Kick Boxing: Rob "The Dutchman" Kaman is considered by many as the greatest Kickboxer of all time. The Dutchman's professional career spans 19 years from 1980 to 1999. Over that time, he has amassed 112 fights over his career, with record of 98 Wins (78 by KO), 11 Losses, and 1 Draw. As a fighter he found himself in venues that spanned from the Holland, Thailand, the U.S., Japan and multiple other European countries. What made Kaman so great was that the man utilized all the offensive weapons he had available (in both his Kick Boxing and Muay Thai boughts), and was able to pick the appropriate combination to apply at a given moment. Even though he was known for his low kicks, he has won matches with virtually every conceivable technique which kept his opponents guessing (many times wrong). His list of defeated opponents is a "who's who" A-list of Kick Boxing/MT greats. You can sample his hanndiwork with this clip here.

As far as MMA goes... Well, the pool is very broad to choose from. But here are guys I would throw out there right off the top of my head:

Bas "El Guapo" Rutten
Duane "Bang" Ludwig
Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell
Mirko "Cro-Cop" Filipovic

That should do for now.
