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!
Jose Aldo. manhoef?
ANDERSON SILVA - THE BEST
Sadolla - not bad!

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....
