    Who do you think has the most natural power in their hands in the UFCs Lightweight division?

    Is it Maynard?

    Could be. Gomi hits like a truck, still.

    Gomi and Melvin pack a punch, for sure.

    Wow. LW does not have a lot of hard punchers does it?

    I'm sure Michael McDonald hits harder than most UFC lightweights.

    Jeremy Stephens was the first guy that came to my mind.

    Jeremy Stephons is an honorable mention.

    Gomi might hit the hardest.

    Melvin & Jeremy Stephens are the heaviest hitters for sure. Nobody else comes close when it comes to straight punching power at LW



    So far the only fight where I've seen Maynards punching power on display was in his fights against the much smaller Edgar and it still had no effect in the later rounds.

    Probably Gomi. Guillard, Maynard and Stephens are up there for sure.
