    I remember watching that thinking Herman snapped his neck or some shit with how he collapsed into a broken corpse. Then he came to enough to get to his back and I was relieved. That KO is in my all time top-5.

    P4P Hardest Punchers
    1. Hendo
    2. Carwin
    3. Rumble

    Hendo, a WW, knocked the HW GOAT out cold with one punch. He has the touch of death in his hands.

    Carwin KOed everyone with short range jabs, he never had a fight last past 2 minutes until the Lesnar fight. Even then it was only Brocks insanely dense skull that allowed him to live through it - Frank Mir is still recovering from the KO Carwin gave him.

    Rumble - no more needs to be said but.. one punch KOs spanning four weight divisions.

    It helps when the other guy literally drives himself into your punches believe it or not.

    To this day this is still one of the very few knockouts I truly worried about. I know there's been a lot of really bad ones, both before and since, but this is one of the few ones where I truly thought I'd just seen a fighter die.

    Arlovski one punched plenty, including Nelson. He was fast and strong. Nelson was always fat and slow.

    Holy shit, Pryor was a beast. His two wins against Arguello were absolutely brutal.

    manhoef and its not even close
    dan henderson as well

    these dudes are small and knocked out much bigger guys. some of these so called 'power punchers' mostly throw their weight in it but its not raw explosive power.

    imight forget some fighters but manhoef and henderson are prime examples

    P4P probably Henderson. Ngannou has to be up there. Maybe Carwin.
