    Where would you rank him in terms of power?

    Maybe but I think it’s Pedro Rizzo

    Regardless of the height of the kick?

    Ya, I mean Power is power
    I was speaking in terms of shear impact

    OK, just curious if you thought there was a different answer depending on height. What do you think about Cro Cop?

    That would actually be a better choice
    Can’t believe I didn’t think of him

    Yeah but I would have to say Melvins head kicks look harder. Maybe they're tied in the low kicks

    If we’re going low kicks I think Rizzo has them both best tbh, I haven’t seen anything like what happened to randlemans legs after he fought Rizzo, even more so then wandys ribs after he fought crocop and that looked like his foot print was ingrained

    I'm confident Melvins head kick here caused severe brain damage in Sakuraba

    I don't think they follow fights as well as these posters

    You might be right and truth be told I respect your pick given that Manhoef isn’t usually in the discussion of being the hardest kicker of all time, same reason I picked Rizzo
    If you google it, neither of them are in any of the rankings
    Sort of a dark horse

    I'll never forget Melvin kicking Robbie Lawler's legs across the cage. Till he got clipped.

    But really though, who has currently the hardest kick on the planet? Rico Verhoeven?

    Really? Saki in his prime kicks harder than Rico? I have trouble believing that.

    He s my favourite kick boxer of all time but I doubt it.

    Aerts, Remi and Saki are better imo
