It's all important as far as ranking...but some are more important than others.
I agree, but I think that it would be best to transcend style and it's singular parts and look at how effective that fighter was in the ring. If forced, I'd probably consider how well that fighter controls the field, his game at every range, and how defensively adept that fighter is.
