    Everyone is hyped about how Francis punches very hard, but that's not the case if you watch the gifs carefully! Gif number one is AA vs the predator

    Here is an old gif that shows the pit bull getting dropped in the same way
    [​IMG]
    Fedor here killed AA and AA dieded
    [​IMG]
    AA has the the tendency to throw his head with his punches and when he gets clobbered on the other side, it makes the impact double! It's like hitting a car head on!
    Let's look at Econoreem's KO

    Overseen has the tendency to keep his head not protected and relies too much on head movements and it always cost him! You would think a k-1 world champ would learn by now!
    Moral of the story, AA and Overeem are the wrong measuring stick for any fighter and that includes Francis!

    People are over hyping Francis but you can't deny the guy is extremely powerful and can beat anyone at the moment with 1 clean shot.

    No way he hits harder than a ford escort going 70.

    Not a Toyota though, only a ford

    I am on the francis train. Not because of any stupid machine or hype job tho. If you watch him and how fast he improved from his first UFC appearance till now you see he is a sponge and clearly genetically blessed. I believe its a pick em kind of match up but he is a problem for anyone who stands in front of him

    True but you can see how Francis slips and can absorb others shots while nobody can seem to absorb Francis'

    So Ngannou's punching power is overrated because not every punch he lands is a knockout?

    Rumble trains with Spong who is an elite kickboxer and he said when he sparred with Ngannou that Ngannou hits incredibly hard. I think Rumble would be an expert when it comes to power in MMA striking

    Tim had the same effect even after getting punched hard, so he must hit real real hard!
