Worlds Best Stand-Up Fighter?

I say CroCop has the best stand up game of any fighter.

Vote and Discuss!

Mirko Filipovic is nowadays the best stand up fighter. Quinton Jackson is one of them to with those strikes and slams. But the best back in the early days when Pancrase and UFC owned it was Bas Rutten for sure.

Not to be rude. But have you guys gone crazy. What about the K1 fighter's. Crocop has never won a gp. Ernesto hoost, or peter aerts have won 4. remy has won 2. One of these guys have to be the best. I'd say remy because of age.

Tito shouldnt even be on that list bro , Shogun , Overeem , LiL Nog , Hunt , JLB , Sylvia , Arlovski , GSP , etc are alot better strikers then Tito , but no question Mirko CroCop is the best standup fighter in mma right now , with mark hunt right behind him

Those are kickboxers not mixed martial artists.

Yeah I messed up cause I meant to put Rampage instead of Tito but I was doing two things at once and he got on the list. Feel free to vote others if you think someone from K-1 is better.

@Rush-It doesn't matter if there kickboxers or Martial artist, stand up fighting is stand up fighting.

Yes, but the question was who has the worlds best stand up, not restricted to only MMA.

best striker

I know Vitor isn't in the game to much right now, but I still think he's explosive. Liddel is the dominant fighter in UFC right now, but I think he have a tough test against Vanderlai. Silva lost to Belfort when Vitor landed 18 consectitive shots in earlier UFC. I think he's turned his game around, and I lay the odds at almost even in this fight. Chuck will destroy sorbal, I don't like the match up. Its a weak pay per view.
In terms of Pride, Cro Crop lost to fedechenko, excuse the spelling, and Mark Hunt, but has the most explosive kick in MMA right now. Hunts chin is unparralled, but as people have said this isn't a kickboxing match. I agree that many people have a legitimate shot at this crown, but the fighter who I've seen have the most explosion besides the top dogs is Dan Hendersen. His overhand right is destroying people. I'd like to see him cross over and fight Franklin or Hughes. I think he's 185 division, but I can be off.

True but this is an MMA forum. I can name about 20 boxers and 10 kickboxers that have better stand up fighting than these options. But this is an MMA forum not a kickboxing and boxing forum. Sorry to be stubborn but its true.
