    But how do we know if Jones performs well off the juice? I understand someone from his college said he was juicing back then as well.

    Jones not fighting Rumble really kills the idea that he "dominated" his era at LHW.

    Hitting the right spot matters. Look at the punch Diaz floored Lawler with back in the day.

    he couldn't ko glass jawed arlovski even whe he was fully hydrated. I think miocic punches harder if he actually tried.

    tbf dc already moves so it took away some of the impact. it wasn't a flush shot. The kick he landed in the second fight was way scarier.

    What about former champs Werdum and Cigano, in addition to a killer's row of HWs before that... bum.

    Arlovski was 100% saved by the bell in that fight though. Rumble dropped him hard.

    That’s hard to do when you’re getting out struck and abused by a 40 yr old fat guy with a 1ft reach and height disadvantage.

    How many times this has to be told, DC has said that punch didn't land clean and that he fell because he was off balanced. He instantly stood up and didn't look hurt at all.

    drained dc at lhw has power issues. hw dc doesnt. hw rumble is not that great. he couldnt ko glass jawed arlovski. not discrediting rumble's power. DC at hw is just too much of a beast. DC would walk through rumble at hw.

    I still think Rumble is the hardest hitter ever in MMA history.

    Rumble has the gifts but not the mentality.

    Stipe is typically a volume puncher,not a thrower of death bombs

    OK, well he still hits harder than Stipe, according to DC. Just because the punch didn't land flush, can we agree it was a hard punch?

    Did I say the punch landed cleanly? No, no I didn't. Fucking nitpicky mofos at Sherdog, as fucking usual. Jeez. Calm the fuck down.

    Probably, but that kick was a thing of beauty, and timed and angled perfectly. Don't need rumble power when you're pulling that off.
