I was just curious what people's thoughts were because you'll hear some who feel the level of competition (striking wise) is so much higher in K-1 than MMA that they'd always favor that guy in a stand-up battle, whereas you'll get others who feel Anderson and JDS would likely beat anyone in the world standing.
Yeah, there are a few MMA athletes that are more than just MMA athletes, they're also world class in other disciplines (wrestling, jiu jitsu, boxing, judo, sambo, muy thai, etc).
