Igor hit like a truck, and was absolutely unreal in vale tudo rules because his bones were made out of steel and he could throw full power and not break his hand. He was not what I would deem an elite level striker, just a mean fucking brawler. In K-1 Hoost, and in Pride CC, showed that he couldn’t handle kicks well.
As far as the best striker in MMA, I think you have to look at Cro Cop and Anderson Silva. Hunt has really shown to be all that devastating on his feet in MMA, and while he great creds from K-1 he isn’t steam rolling guys like Mirko and Silva did.[/quote]
I dont understand why people give people Fedor and Wanderlei Silva to much credit for their striking ability. They look sloppy to me,dont you think? Igor might have not been a tight boxer like CC but he managed alright.
Fedor and Silva however…not so much. Fedors Ground and Pound are amazing and Silvas headstomps are great and all but as far as thier striking? Not so much. Good call on Anderson Silva. From what I can tell is that hes pretty fast and slick.
