Default In stand up terms...no TD ect, who'd be the best at 170 and below...

Simple question, if there we no TD's in MMA who'd be the GOAT...I picked the ''little'' guys because I wanted to take power out of the equation and talk about technique On a technical level, Id pick Aldoas the prime MT example and like wise Penn with his boxing.

The likes of Rambaa Somdet, Cosmo Alexandre, Edson Barboza, Jose Aldo, Anthony Njokuani, Thiago Alves...

With the fear of the takedown, these guys would put on clinics. Most do already.

Predicatable...yes Anderson is an ATG, but not at 170...not that that matters, but he kodded grapplers mainly at the weight

Another Penn nutswinger. Edgar easily outboxed him twice. Swing from those nuts.

P4P Rambaa Somdet and it ain't even close.

Rambaa had probabaly already had 60 - 80 pro bouts by the age of 16 the same age a young Andserson Silva first pulled on a a pair of Muay Thai shorts.

3k ain't got the allround skills to stand with Rambaa.......P4P 3K struggles to handle M-16.

3 rounds, no TD, I'd love to see Thiago Alves at his best. Remember his peak run pre GSP, just pure unadultered violence in every strike.

If you thought Penn was out boxed in the first fight, you know nothing about boxing.
