    He couldn't take the Hunt uppercut. Who knows. Nelson has a hell of a chin but has been KOd twice. Ngannou can KO anyone. I don't think it is healthy to be able to take that uppercut.

    I honestly don't think anybody in MMA history takes that shot. It was flush man.



    The Sterling KO is the most brutal KO of the year though. I don't think I've ever seen anybody go more stiff from a strike in my life. Geeeeeez

    All the punchers in Bellator like Roy & Mitrione would KO Ngannou within 2 rounds.

    Prime Hunt could have eaten it. Cabbage as well.

    Not sure at this point. No one wants to see a gassy Roy Nelson take a prolonged beating for like the tenth time.

    Hunto would fuck Ngannou up, quite literally the only top10 fighter Hunt could take out, but stylistically, perfect for Hunto.

    Roy would be clean-shaven after taking that uppercut.

    I think Hunt would get bodybagged by Ngannou. Someone would get KOd either way

    I hadn't seen a KO in the UFC where I worried if the guy was ever going to wake up again for a long time and then we had two in a week lol God damn those were some vicious KOs

    When has Hunto been put away with punches, actually? Dual uber-knees or a flush headkick?

    Hunt doesn't initiate clinch like Reem did as well, that uppercut wouldn't happen. Hunt could take anything Ngannou throws at him, unless the predator holds amazing ground game

    Overeem getting KOd by that punch is a very poor evidence to believe that.

    Manhoef put him away with punches and Hunt likes to stand and trade. He has eaten dozens of flush uppercuts.
