    Maldano lost the fight but won all the fans by showing off his big brass balls just by taking it

    He's totally right. When you're talking 200+ lbs guys there is plenty of power to go around. it's who is best at landing that power.

    Stipe is a far better boxer than all the guys Fabio has fought. That is more important than a few lbs. Glover is good and a powerful puncher but he just didn't land "that shot" to hurt him.

    Ya Stipe's boxing blows Glover's out of the water, it's not just about who wings the biggest punches

    The fence is what kept Fabio up for 90% of the time that he fought Glover in the standup.

    I'm just pointing out that the gif I posted happened at the first minute of the fight. very fast knockdown.

    Also, while looking at your gif... it reminds me. Damn Yamasaki really took years off the life of F

    One on the chin, one to the back of the head? Doesn't look strong? Are you volunteering to be hit?

    Yeah he's actually totally right. Maldonado was coming forward into Stipe's right hand, so not only did he eat the force of the punch but his own body weight amplified the force of impact significantly.

    Shit like this is why a relatively small 185er in Manhoef KOed Hunt, when JDS's overhand right "only" dropped him like a sack of potatoes (because the force was enormous but Hunt wasn't moving into it).

    KOs like Manhoef-Hunt, Machida-Bader or Machida-Evans, and Miocic-Maldonado are generally more a feat of timing than anything else.

    Also, Archie Moore, who had one of the longest documented careers in Boxing, knocked younger guys the FUCK OUT as an old man without much beyond craftiness and a great sense of timing.
