Best leg kicks in MMA?

Who does the best leg kicks in MMA(pound for pound)?

A few names of the top of my head:
Georges "Rush" St. Pierre - He uses leg kicks quite a bit and they are straight up nasty. For proof look no further than GSP vs. Hughes 2 and GSP vs. Sherk.
Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto - Kid may be more known for his fists, but his leg kicks are quite nasty too.
Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic - He doesn't use them a lot, but when he does, they do serious damage. Any strike from Cro Cop is pretty brutal. Check out his fight with Yoshida for proof.

However my pick for the current leg kick champ is...

Hayato "Mach" Sakurai - Just thinking about his leg kicks makes my legs hurt. The man is just straight up vicious with those. He has chopped down countless opponents. *cringe*

Good call. I knew I would miss some names, that's partly why I started the thread.

Good topic. Nothing like the sound of a good leg kick.

Cro Cop is the current king of the leg kicks. If you take a bat, and swing it at someone's leg, then you still wouldn't duplicate a CC leg kick. Incredibly hard, menacing leg kicks. Such malice thrown in them, and watching Yoshida crumble from them proved how sickening they are. Hell, and Yoshida has pants on.

Bas had some mean leg kicks. Those damn Pancrase boots couldn't block the force of them. In his debut fight, he delivers such a nasty leg kick. I'm sort of biased here, and I think Bas could chew gum better than anyone.

Pedro Rizzo had some awesome leg kicks. He was too much of a mental midget, but he did enough to get his point accross. Incredibly hard and accurate. Watching Dan Severn go from "I'm sort of screwed here...*KICK*...I'M SO DEAD!" showed how nasty Rizzo can be with his leg kicks.
