Anderson Silva definatly has the most technical striking in MMA but I would say either Cro Cop or Lidell as its hard to argue as untechnical as Chucks striking is its hard to argue with its effectiveness.

anderson silva probably Machida and Cung lee are also great I think its a toss up between them

Keith has the potential to have the best stand up game as long as his emotions dont get the best of him like they did in the silva and alexander fight. He showed some great striking against chuck and he could improve it to the point where he would be the best.

Jardine's striking is so odd, but it works against guys who don't bumrush him. Solid kicks, really weird punches and odd movement. Chuck had a hard time figuring him out. I don't think he has the potential to have the best stand-up, but what he does works for him, most of the time.

Keith Jardine is underrated.

Kimbo Slice hands down. Yea hes a brawler, but his raw power and ability to take mass punishment make him my pick. You did say mma and not ufc specifically. I like jardine and A.silva too and lidell but I think Kimbo is just too powerful. He has to at least be the hardest hitter in mma.

Boo! fight with Honor!

theres so many different styles and guys that its really hard to determine. In terms of the best technical striker it would be either cung le or anderson silva. In terms of effectiveness Fedor.

lol, I mean I dont hate on kimbo. He is brand spanking new to mma but if you think hes a top tier guy you have another thing coming. Elite xc understands this thats why he isnt the elite xc champion and some one else is.
