Off that list of choices...I went with Liddell. He's just so pin-point. I mean, I've seen a couple of his fights where he knocked out his opponent going backwards. Now that is accuracy and power combined in one. So, that is why I went with Chucky.

Babalu is in trouble.

Exactly, whats the big hype about people thinking Babalu is going to win. If he tries tacking down Chuck it won't work, Chuck is so much stronger than him and has the best take down defense, therefore no submissions Babalu. And in the stand up Chuck would definitely out strike him the way he did to Jeremy Horn and Horn is better then Babalu in my opinion.

God you people don't know topics at all.

MMAForum General Discussion

thats what this is

NOT K-1, if you want to add K-1 fighters go to K-1 page.

It's a totally different sport k-1 and MMA.

Kickboxers do nothing but train stand up so they have more time to advance there skills. MMA fighters have to do both stand up and ground defence and offense so they have less tiem to train for just one.

I think Cro Cop is the best, Chuck's an AWSOME stand up but i think Mirko is the best.

I think another guy who should be on that list with stand up ( i know u put other but just sayn), is Rich Franklin because holy shit is he evasive with his punches. I just watched him vs The Crow last night, and he kicked the ever living shit out of him with kicks, knees, and punches from all over.

David had a freakin 3rd eye lol.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

Horns not better, he was beaten by Babalu in the IFC. Babalu has a good chance at this. He's not only a submission expert. He wasnt even knocked out after that head kick, he got up right away. It was just a nasty head kick so the ref stopped it.

Jeremy Horn is a legend and one of the greatest MMA middleweights of all time. Babalu sure beat him but Babalu is a light heavyweight Horn is a middleweight. Horn fights a lot of light heavyweights because he has guts, unlike Babalu being kicked in the head like a coward .

now since this is just restricted to STAND-UP fighters.. and obviously that can include anyone.. REGARDLESS of the orginazation they fight for... so a K-1 fighter can be included here if someone feels the need being the best on ones feet could even include a TKD fighter since grappling and other non striking skills are not needed... and this is just general discussion... and well no one said the person has to be alive.. but well if they have to be alive its a tough call cause as Rush said there are lots of great boxers that with just hands would whoop nearly any MMA or other martial arts fighter.. if it were just hands.. but since feet are allowed.. that takes out all but the cream of the crop of boxers and even they would be hard pressed... now kick boxers or muay thai fighters are on par.. so its really hard to say.. for those that are ALIVE... but since it is too close in most areas for those alive I am gonna go out on a limb and choose someone who is dead.. and go ahead and laugh.. but I think with out grappling being involved... Bruce Lee would be almost... key word.. almost any one of these guys or at least hurt them badly..

Jeremy is a great fighter, not saying I dont like him. But, just because he's supposedly a middle weight doesnt negate that he lost to Babalu. Second Jeremy's faught more fights over 185 in his career than any other weight class. So I guess you think his last lost to Chuck Liddel was solely based on the fact that Jeremy Horn should have been 185lbs, not 205lbs?

How can you call Babalu a coward for getting kicked in the head, he took that ****ing kick, and he stood in that ring with Liddel, and he's submitted a lot of good people in this game. But I am going to stay away from the MMA math.

coward? the same guy who beat 3 guys in one night, Shogun being one of those guys...the same guy who lasted the distance with Fedor being he isnt a HW...the same guy who kept comming at Chuck after tasting Chucks biggest punches....the same guy who wants a rematch with the guy that kicked him in the head...yeah, a coward...the same coward Chuck said would be tougher than Silva...the same coward that Chuck is preparing like hell cause he knows wont go down from one punch...

what a coward right....
