anderson silva by far
anderson silva is on another level
Genuinely surprised that the only person to mention Terry on this thread so far is another Kaoboner. He won a Bronze medal in the King's Cup in Bangkok before he fought MMA, only losing a split decision to the Gold medallist.
Belcher uses Muay Thai ok, but he defo looks like a guy who just spent a few months at a camp in Phuket at some point in his career and that's it.
Alves has insane leg kicks, but doesn't really take much else from Thai as far as I can see.
Daley's an amazing striker, but has more of a K1/grenade-hands style?
A Silva is the total package, everyone goes on about him fighting in boxing, but it would be cool to see what he could do in a straight Muay Thai fight.
Not seen him, but heard good things about Doolan.
EDIT: oh, and Jose Aldo FFS!
Not mch love for Wand?
Muay Thai wrecking machine in the Pride FC days.
Edwardian Sex Kestrel
Those leg kicks were destroying Lawler until... well, you know.

actually whilst daley is 'dutch rules really now' his early fights in cage rage for me had the best adaptation of true MT - still think he throws the best proper thai elbows in the game ....
silvas is good, etims also v good....
jon jones has phil nurses style through and through....put him in a pair of thai shorts and hes a lanky version of phil !
best thai though (non ufc) ramba m16 somdet....even in his MMA he throughs killer bodykicks....
