    said the hardest he was ever hit in sparring was by Drew McFedries and it had him messed up for a while.

    Melvin Manhoef probably kicked him the hardest.

    Yeah. The other one surprised me. I've heard lots of guys say McFedries hits like a tank.

    No wonder he doesn't spar anymore. Mcfedries hits like a truck.

    Before Diaz fans come in, it is possible to have been hit harder by a punch that didn't knock you out. All about timing and placement.

    That's because Drew hits like a Mac truck. If it affected Robbie like that, then you know it really hurts other people. It's just that Drew has a hard time implementing his talent in a high level fight.

    Thanks for the information.
    Always good stuff from you and the work you put in at fights is always appreciated.

    I think the Diaz punch just surprised him. He didn't see it coming and was moving right into it. It's pretty clear it was not a hard thrown punch and Diaz has not displayed KO power in any other fight pretty much. It was just the timing, the momentum of Lawler moving forward, Lawler not bracing for it, and the placement of the strike.

    He got knocked into a living death! The third shot turned his body like the hands on a clock.
