    Some divisions are easier to place than others, but who has the heaviest hands in each division?

    Based on active UFC fighters as of 2021

    My Picks (subject to change upon better analysis):

    Heavyweight: Derrick Lewis

    Light Heavyweight: Johnny Walker

    Middleweight: Jared Cannonier

    Welterweight: Vicente Luque

    Lightweight: Devonte Smith

    Featherweight: Josh Emmet

    Bantamweight: Cody Garbrandt

    Flyweight: Deiveson Figueiredo

    Womens Bantamweight: Karol Rosa

    Womens Flyweight: Taila Santos

    Womens Strawweight: Marina Rodriguez

    It seems to take Francis a few shots to knock someone out, but we have seen Derrick Lewis concuss too many guys with a single punch to not put him atop HW. Francis may have heavier hands but we have to see more to conclude that.

    The only real one shot knockout I recall is Overeem

    It is one thing to have accurate and another to have heavy hands,
    and another to have both at the same time!

    I have no clue who 90% of those people are but didn't Johnnie Walker and Cody spend alot of their fights getting their ass beat? Also didn't Emmit recently get his face caved in by Jeremy Stephens?
    On another note I do know who the "Black Beast" is and hope he whoops the shit out of Francis "The Windmiller" Nagana...ao...no...doesn't even matter because I'm about to get my ass tuned up by Derrick Lewis.

    Walker throws elbows and other unorthodox techniques, can't really say he hits the hardest

    Wut? Besides Blaydes who did Lewis knock out cold with a punch? Answer is no one. Lewis' bread and butter are late finishes by brawling against exhausted opponents who drop their guard, ending with GNP.



    Ngannou knocked out cold Henrique, Overeem, Jarzinho and Stipe. He has more 1st round KO/TKO. And he has a higher knockdown ratio.

    LHW was the hardest division to come up with a good name.

    A lot of Walkers knockouts are by elbow, or knee, or a combination but I still do believe he has the heaviest hands at LHW. Fifteen of his eighteen wins are by knockout and eight of those are by punch(es). In his last fight he also appeared to concuss Ryan Spann when both landed on one another simultaneously. Walker was knocked down by Spann but he got back up and a seemingly concussed Spann shot a takedown. Ryan Spann is a very large LHW so concussing him with a single punch was a big factor.

    Having the heaviest hands and getting your ass beat aren't mutually exclusive.

    He did knock Henrique out cold but he already had him hurt with previous shots the guy was in the process of going down already when Francis landed the punch that put him to sleep.

    Overeem and Jarzinho he definitely knocked out cold with a single punch.

    Stipe I don't believe it was a one punch knockout, it might have been, but hard to tell.

    Also, Francis a lot of the time will hurt someone while they are standing and they will fall, but still be fighting until he lands a few shots via g&p. Lewis appears too concuss guys with a single shot and they are out after a single follow up shot or just out cold instantly.

    Ngannou is the hardest hitter in the whole division.

    How are you a 2007 account. You should know most of not all of those fighters if you watch MMA. Also Emmett didn't "recently" get his face caved in...that was more than 3 years ago.

    I stopped honestly being into the sport around 2013-14. No desire to watch., or pay, to watch girls fight, or guys the size of junior high kids fight. Before you say it yes they would whoop my ass, doesn't mean it's entertaining. Not to mention guys picking and choosing who they'd fight, wasn't like that back in the day unless it was Tito. The sport has become stale.
