6. Edson Barboza

Even if he never landed another kick for the rest of his career, Barboza will go down as one of most exciting strikers ever just because of his amazing knockout of Terry Etim.

Barboza was a very accomplished Muay Thai fighter in Brazil before transitioning to MMA, where he has been able to turn his advanced striking style into a #4 ranking in UFC’s lightweight division. Unfortunately Barboza is one of those fighters who will win a few in a row, and then run into a guy like Tony Ferguson who nobody has been able to figure out just yet.

Many say that Barboza has the best kicks of any active fighter.
