I was rewatching the Jiri vs Rakic fight and holy shit, Jiri endured dozens and dozens of punches to the face and while he was stunned a few times, it was never really bad. He simply outlasted and then sonned Rakic which makes Alex look like a god. Guy hit Jiri clean one time and yeah, early stoppage but Jiri was clearly hurt. He couldn't knock out Jan but that was months after his own KO loss and it was at altitude so sorta understandable. Knocking out Hill for the first time (and didn't even connect cleanly) is super impressive too.
Would you say Alex is the hardest hitting /best KO artist LHW ever? combining power and precision. If not him, who would you rank above him? Rumble? Chuck?
 
He’s up there for most power ever for sure.

I’d say prime Rumble gives him a run for his money. But with Rumble it looked like he threw bombs. Alex looks like he’s barely throwing full power and decapitates people.
Honestly, Rumble was the only one who came to mind. I know Chuck, Rampage and Wand hit hard but there's something different about Rumble and Alex. Touch of death is real with these guys.
Alex is definitely top 3 all time at LHW.
 
Yeah, I mean look what he did to Strickland as well. Literally one-hittered him into semi consciousness.

He is a nasty striker.

Even his calf kicks are brutal. Just one or two, and you see guys limping or switching stances immediately.

The guys hands and shins are made of concrete.

I'd say Pereira is close to the hardest hitter ever at LHW, but he needs a few more KO's to be ahead of Chuck Liddell, in my opinion. I would also say that Wanderlei Silva has to be given consideration also, though his were rarely one punch KO's. If Alex gets a couple more devastating KO's though, he may be the hardest hitter ever!

I look at Alex who looks like a giant and the older LHWs (Wand, Rampage and Chuck) and holy shit the size difference is massive. That alone should count for substantially more KO power and then you add in his skill and technique and it's hard to put any other LHW (aside from Rumble) above him.
 
It's not just power it's timing and placement. Alex knows how to set up death shots with perfect timing and touches the tip of the chin.
Yep

all that is true.

But sometimes he just flashes that thing out there suddenly and it is just death to anything it touches. Even he dont know when that will be.


Poatan: interesting. So that was the one.

He hits harder than Ngannou so he might be GOAT PSI
 
His power seems exquisite at any weight class. Generates a lot of force in even the shortest hooks.
 
power, precision, timing, feints, composure, the ability to read his opponent, imposing presence. This combination is very rare.
If we talk simply standup, maybe AS is a good match, and Im not sure. MW Alex would have very good chances of sleeping Andy.

touch of death is a good way of putting it it doesnt look like he put a lot behind it the shots are short and fast
