i think you guys are being harsh on mma guys here, if a striker is a world class striker in mma then he should be compared to other mma guys, not top k-1 guys ect.
btw im not saying they are going to beat guys like Aerts, Hug, Hoost, JLB, Bonjasky, Sefo because clearly these guys destroy them but its mma so they should be compared to other guys in mma, btw i know a few k-1 guys have dabled but really there still k-1 guys.
i just dont like how often the terms thrown around on avergae strikers, though because ive watched kickboxing ym standards are probs higher i rank world class strikers by how far above their competition they are
btw who do you consider world class in mma. A Silva is just miles ahead of his competition and he would get the nod from me. BJ has heavy hands and great timing. tbh there arent alot of other guys i would mention atm mma is filled with good strikers and great grapplers atm and its pretty hard to consider guys like wandy great strikers from a technical standpoint (i love watching it but dont know exactly what to call it, his style works though) for effectiveness i guess him and chuck cd get a nod.
