arent we getting a little to specific?
First it was best fighter in the world.
Then best P4p fighter in the world
then best P4p fighter in a org.
Now best P4P striker in a org.
Whats next?

Nobody even thinks about what pound for pound means. A figther who wiehgs 160 and has the same talnet has one who is 260. The 160 guy is p4p better.
People dont realize that.

Gomi IMO is the best p4p striker.

Norifumi 'Kid' Yamamoto...

When you watch him, it is hard to keep in mind that you're watching a 145er

he's k-1, great fighter though. As for Pride l'll go with LIl NOG, best hands in pride to me. Kick's aren't as plentiful as they could be, But I think he has by far the best boxing. Great chin, good footwork also.

Ooopps, didn't catch the 'PRIDE' part of the thread, my fault...

In that case, I have to go with...

I think a year ago it would have been Wandy, now I'll go with Gomi. Lil Nog is no slouch either.

Hunt, he's the only K-1 fighter on that list and they are elite strikers so I'll have to pick him, he outstruck Cro Cop come on how can you choose someone else?

I agree. If someone actually stood in front of him they would get their heads knocked off. The only problem is that he doesn't get that chance very often since people wanna bring him down to the mat.

CroCop isn't easy to KO and neither is Wanderlei so I'm not surprised he went the distance with those two world class strikers. At least he knocked down Wandy twice (or was it 3 times?).

I think striking wise UFC might have just as much quality as Pride.

Chuck, GSP, Cro Cop (Arguably the best in the world), Anderson Silva, and a handful of others.

But in Pride I would say Gomi. Once Kid gets a few more fights under his belt I will probably say him

I voted Gomi due to quickness with good punching power.

Wanderlei Silva, devastating knees, excellent clinch, wild but powerfull hands, great kicks, and overall a very exciting fighter.

My 2nd pick goes to Shogun who has a similar style.

Well Cro Cop did defeat him in K1.
Some how Hunt then beat CC in MMA. Wow this world is strange.

Great boxer obviously, actually pretty good chin against Hunt too. Would like to see him learn the ground he could be dangerous then.
