    On paper it's Wonderboy, but I voted hackney because he is a wild man, and uses a striking style unlike modern mma. Hackney by wild overhand palm strike outta nowhere.

    My thinking is the same. He should win for uniqueness.
    Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the prevalent thought here

    Wonderboy billion times better. Undefeated kickboxer, 14-2 In mma against hackney 2-2 in mma and used groin shots to win so he wouldn't last long in today's mma

    He wouldn't last long in UFC. He could freely participate in other formats

    Wonderboy.
    The game itself has evolved. Just recently this high movement striking style has started to really break through, but give it a few years time and most fighters will have to have evolved to address this evolution and the skill set to either utilize or deal with these skills will be commonplace.

    The winner is Stephen Thompson 10-4. The next matchup will be Royce Gracie and Matt Hughes, I will post it up Friday.

    Side note, is it still possible to post a poll on MT directly? I feel like that would be easier than using another site.

    Yeah but Hughes is a bullying jerk so my vote will be for gracie who I'm not a fan of either but better than Hughes

    We aren't voting on who you like better and who's a jerk, though.

    Hughes absolutely manhandled Gracie like a man vs a child
