John Hutchinson, Petr Yan‘s boxing trainer/boxing coach at Tiger Muay Thai, revealed his list of the fighters to utilize boxing in MMA. “John Boy” listed Conor McGregor, Rob Font, Brandon Moreno, and Dustin Poirier as the best currently in the game.

Hutchinson on why Max Holloway did not make the list:

“Max Holloway gets hit a lot. He lets his hands go but his defense…for a boxer you try not to get hit..[get] hit less. That would rule me out for Max Holloway even though he can let his hands go.”
