I suppose that's why Brock made Herring carthwheel backwards across the octagon with one punch...

I could agree that a good chin can't be developed, but as for having KO power....I disagree.

Training, muscle development, and technique are all parts of having knockout power (IMO). Generally speaking more weight usually means more power....not in a specific division though. Average 250lb guy is prolly gonna hit harder than the average 140lb guy. Ya know?

But in MMA, you have a legion of fighters who compete at a high level with barely any standup ability - Kos etc...

But with some training and adaptability, its not impossible to develop the power needed, especially with the tiny gloves.
oh shit its omar yo

Just blindly throwing around your fists with all the power on earth won't get you a KO*, same as perfect technique with no real power behind it won't.

A good KO artist will have good form, balance and natural power in equal proportions.



*save for a few lucky hits.

the difference is a chin which gets more punches absorbed on it gets weakr after a while, whilst punching a bag and learning how to properly throw creates power. You can learn to throw a KO punch, but cant learn how to take one.
