    some fighters should be 'no fists', not 'pillow fists'. aoki is a prime example, dude basically can't strike.

    Sorry that’s complete nonsense

    Is a prolific ko artist like a Mark Hunt or Liddell? No — but he’s definetely above average

    Just off the the top of my head he’s either dropped of KO’d —- machida , arona , overeem , hendo, chuck, Forrest , Villanate , Te Huna

    There’s literally a million other fighters that haven’t even come close to that lhw that people are mentioning —- Forrest is a quick and easy one

    Nick Diaz. He is very pillow-fisted, does not have a one-punch KO power and relies on volume instead.
    His brother is up there too.

    This is great. All I can imagine hearing is...
    Goldberg: "McMann raining down punches!!!"
    Rogan: "OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!"

    Do you think Conor has power? Because.. Paulie has as many one punch ko's as Conor does, but in bigger gloves..

    Sonnen and Shields come to mind for 170 and above. A lot of guys in the lower weight classes don't have much power.

    I disagree with the Diaz brothers, they don't throw most of their punches with anything close to full power because they are trying for volume. but they hurt people when they land clean with a full power punch.

    Fuckin beautiful lead left hook. Power coming up from the midsection after the dip leftwards.

    Distance gauging lead hand followed by the sat down on finisher.

    Better technique in these two gifs than can be displayed by countless male fighters. Shitting on WMMA is well received around here though, so I get it.

    Most men don't have prolific KO power either. That's why there are a select few respected for their ability to put people to sleep.

    Dropping people doesn't necessarily come from power, it comes from volume and accuracy, just like the Diaz brother's etc. Hence why I included the video of all of Shogun's KO's/TKO's. You
    can see they are mostly volume punches and flurrys that stop his opponents. The stomps and knees were powerful as fuck though.

    Khabib is king here. No GIFS needed.

    That last fight he had, landed over 100 punches and couldn't put the sucker down.

    But he clearly has more stoppage and knock downs by punches than a lot of lhws

    Can’t be considered pillow fisted by any measure
