    I think it's high time we redefined the term "pillow-fisted". Looking forward to a KO artist saying something cool like: "My fist is like a pillow - one touch to the head and you go to sleep."

    Who has Jon Jones hurt with punches other than Machida? Always thought he had really weak punches for a man that big and athletic, but "pillow fists" is a stretch.

    Someone already mentioned him, his fight with Henderson was just sad, he mounted him for 20+ minutes with no power to hurt him.

    Some fighters have so weak punches, they don't have a choice but to fight like that. What type of muscle fibre you have is a big part of that.

    He doesn't have pillow fists. He has strong fists, just a pillow mentality.

    yup. nate is as close as it comes, and even he will TKO guys eventually. like in the maynard fight, he never actually goes down but the ref will step in and stop it.
