    After watching rumble fight, while he has ungodly power, his speed is pretty fucking crazy too. Which fighters have the best combo of speed as well as power? And who has it the most?
    From the top of my head, tyron, yoel, Fedor, crocop, Francis, rumble to name a few. I think Chad Mendez was pretty gifted too.
    This can make up for the deficiency in skill, imo.

    I'll add two Melvin's to your list - Melvin Guillard and Melvin Manhoef. Very explosive, huge power.

    You know you're heavy handed when you're a MW and you KO Mark Hunt.

    Manhoef was crazy. Can't believe I forgot him.

    Francis Ngannou is actually extremely fast for a 265 pounds man.

    Vitor had a pretty good balance of speed and power.

    Not the hardest hitter ever, but his speed allowed him to catch fighters with unseen shots and unload quick combos.

    Tyron Woodley - when he exploded - seemed to be able to cover the distance and land bombs faster than his opponents were able to get their hands up too.

    he does have very fast hands for a huge dude. It's surprising. Good for him. Fast hands will ALWAYS help any fighter out a lot.

    But seriously, I agree with Vitor, and he's the first guy to 'pop' in my head. See what I did there? :D
