...during their career?
A good one is Mike Pyle.
Went from essentially pure judoka to being able to outbox Floyd within a very short timeframe.
Jan Blachowicz. I don't think he was ever 'pillow-fisted', but now he's known for packing quite a punch.
Fedor was more of a volume puncher then he started getting KOs.
There are some incontrovertible truths in this world.
Water is wet.
Rock is hard.
Death comes for us all.
Colby will always be a no power having, pillow fisted fighter.
He smashed the everdurable Woodleys ribs. This is a new era of Colby
Indeed -- he was a journeyman for a while then he went on an all-out violence terror.
Stipe Miocic is another one perhaps -- he wasn't much of a finisher until he knocked out Fabio Maldonado as I recall.
I like Jan, he has good boxing, but I'm not sold on his power. His famous KO's were Glasshold and Corey Anderson
No one is going to mention Bisping?
No such thing as a pillow-fisted fighter. Stop using this term, they all hit hard, if you ever sparred with one of them you would know. Some guys just don’t choose to commit and/or choose power over speed/volume.
Hendo did actually show power quite early in his career, rocked Wanderlei badly in the first fight in 2000.
Ts has small boy complex .. it's ok kiddo
Roy Nelson comes to mind
Meh. The nickname Decision Dan didn't just fall out of the sky
By the time he got to Pride his tactics typically were look for the early KO and if you can't get it then switch to wrestling although ironically the decision that was most questioned back in the day vs Ninja was won by standup offence after having been controled on his back most of the fight.
Masvidal, he was a split decision machine and now he’s ripping heads off.
Masvidal? He went from being a decision machine to "baptizing people" in a pretty short time.
This a very rare thing though cause you can't improve your punching power by technique alone (when someone is already trained ofc). Real differences are basically only visible when fighters move to a different weight class.
