    Doubtful

    Its why these kind of fights are pointless
    MMA guy has far to many advantages in the cage

    You think a fight Randy`s level could have taken down McGregor? Conor`s footwork in the octagon is brilliant, Khabib is better at taking guys down than Randy was P4P.

    Im not huge on MMA if im honest so will take your word for it
    Tbh i read the question wrong, i answered thinking the thread was asking who was the best boxer to appear in MMA

    From what i have seen most MMA guys are pretty lousey at boxing
    They are very entertaining when tading blows however

    Probably Stipe Miocic, he has a good understanding of the fundamentals. I think this was best displayed in his win over Ngannou. Cody Garbrandt is pretty good as well he just tends to get too wild and start swinging for the fences which lead to him getting stopped his last 3 fights.

    GSP is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all-time, I hope you`re only laughing at his boxing skills, though I don`t think you should really.

    masvidal is 2 or 3 levels above gsp in boxing. id say gsps best punch is his jab and it is not on masvidals level. Masvidal has better boxing defense and a wider arsenal of punches.

    Easily Connor McGregor come on guys I know khabib caught him but that was one mistake Floyds been caught quite a few times and Nate Diaz trains with Andre Ward so of course he was able to keep up with Connor Ward even said he thinks Diaz could succeed in Boxing
    • Sparred 12 Rounds with a 2 time world Champion boxer and from the footage released scored a knockdown and outboxed him
    • Went ten rounds with Floyd Mayweather and won the 1st round on all three scorecards and then won Rounds 2 and 3 on another
    • Most UFC fighters who trade hands with him are knocked out

    Mousasi would be my pick. Nasty jab and sound fundimentals. Rarely gets caught with anything. I think he could have been a contender at CW if he ever made the jump to boxing. Look how easily he dealt with Musashi and Fujimoto in K-1.

    Then again theres also Kharitonov who beat the crap out of Helenius in the amateurs only to get robbed. Also gave Hrgovic the fight of his life in WSOB. Both times this was the fatter version of Kharitonov who had been derailed by injuries and reduced to a brawler. Early 00s Kharitonov without a doubt the best boxer ever in MMA.

    GSP hospitalized Koscheck with his jab alone. Broke his orbital bone. Was way ahead of most of his peers with his jab and boxing at the time....

    What no Victor Belfort? Greatest southpaw in MMA.

    Diaz doesn`t punch with any authority, boxers would walk through him essily in a boxing ring. Diaz is not an elite MMA fighter either.
