Your favorite kickboxing fighters (including MT, SanDa, and other rulesets)

Ernesto Hoost (low kicks baby)
Andi Hug (heart - Swiss Rocky)
Peter Aerts - (awesome all round)
Badr Hari (funky attitude, but he's the best IMO)
Overeem - switches stances, giant slab of muscle with skillz, every shot a power shot, kicked Lesnar in liver in mma bonus points

By all means, elaborate on your favorite beyond the little shiat I put up. I'll go back and explain in depth tomorrow, why I like each of these guys the best.

So what the hell? Who are your favorites?

Special Mentions Mark Hunt, and Ray Sefo for being awesome and entertaining.

Bonus special mention to Semmy Schilt, for leaving a pretty good mma career, and becoming one of the all time greats in the sport of kickboxing.

More bonus mentions to come, but I'll save it.

Mark Hunt vs Ray Sefo fight was wonderful to watch, two strong punchers with tough jaws.
Part 1.

Part 2.


Kaoklai Kaennorsing, here against Might Mo. The old days when " At the time of his K-1 debut, on July 17, 2004 in Seoul, Kaoklai weighted 78 kg (170 lb; 12.3 st), the lightest and youngest fighter ever to win the K-1 Super Heavyweight tournament" He was fighting dudes 30+ lbs on him in kickboxing!


Top 1. Jerome Le Banner. Because he's south paw as well, loves to come forward to throw bombinations.


Peter Aerts because leg chopping is fun.
Cro-cop, more in Pride years. LHK!
Hoost's combinations were perfect!

Melvin Manhoef -
WOW! Just watched that again, so pumped up now!

Masato! Because he's handsome, moves well and has a great style.


There was also some guy from Spain (?) that had like 50 wins, mostly by head kick KO.

Paul Briggs- Dude's book helped me through some tough times.

John "Wayne" Parr- Dude is synonymous with Muay Thai in Australia.

Stan "The Man" Longinidis-

Mark Hunt- He's "Australian", until he does something ****, then I'll say he's a Kiwi.

Peter Graham- Legit good bloke when I met him.

Sefo/Hunt is one of the best matches I ever watched.

I am a bit biased, Jordan is my nephew. The Cyborg / Melvin Manhoef fight is one of fave fights of all time, but this fight was pretty awesome too.

So Jordan is my pick for the best based on familial bias, but Peter Aerts would be my overall favorite. Pure killer.

Good thread. Blasts from the past time - fights watched on VHS in the mid-late 90s.

Starting by props to team Netherlands and my old flatmate Gez who'd always come back from Holland with two or three tapes of Ramon Dekker and Peter Aerts. Gez was pretty much gay for the pair of them, and they were totally awesome tbf. Gez also made me puke once by leg kicking me when we were both pissed. Dekker was amazing, and Aerts had fights where you'd be like "OMG!" and then thirty seconds later you were all like "OMG!1!" and then another thirty seconds and it was "OMFG WTF!!?!!" etc.

Mark Hunt was ace, as indicated above.

Liam Harrison (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liam_Harrison_(kickboxer)) fought pretty much every time we used to go to see Master Sken's shows in Manchester, starting out early on the bill as a northern kid with a great attitude and brutal technique and working his way up until he was fighting/headlining all over Europe and Thailand. Nice bloke too.

Only posted 4, **** it. *refuses to bend the knee*

Andy Hug, for making karate look badass.

Ramon Dekker, cause his asskicking highlight reel relieved any doubts in my teenage mind that kickboxing was good for fighting (well, Dutch muay thai, but still)

Cung Le, for beating the hell out of tomato cans with style and poise

Shonie Carter, for using spinning backfists in the UFC before it was cool

Buakaw, because I'm a little afraid that if I don't include him, he'll kick me in the face when I get up from the computer.
