    Conor 100%.

    people act like his left hand is a death touch....it really isn't. Conor has never really been a one-punch-go-to-sleep kind of KO artist (he's more of a TKO guy as Jeremy Stephens put it). The Aldo fight really skewed perceptions on Conor's power. Aldo ran straight into it which made his left look more powerful than it actually is. Everyone he's fought above FW took his left pretty well, with the exception of Eddie (which has more to do with Eddie shrinking under the bright lights and losing confidence in himself than Conor's power being too devastating for him).

    Costa.......he's a volume guy.

    Having said that the weight on his punches is still scary as fuck.....probably better if hed knock you out first time than have him land several in a row!

    Yeah but most of his career was at 145 and his power was insane… very few guys in lighter weight classes have power like him

    Of course if he goes up a weight class it won’t be the same

    100% not Conor

    Eddie hadn’t been finished by strikes in 9 years before the Conor fight, Dustin is extremely durable, only been KO’d once at LW. Khabib has obviously never lost let alone been seriously hurt or stunned.

    Francis Ngannou

    I met him at an airport washroom once. He posts up at the urinal next to me like some weirdo, whips his dick out and starts pissing, and I peek over to get a look at that massive BBC, but instead... Oh man, very sad.

    Anyway, I comment to him about it and he decks me from behind, cheap shot as I'm still pissing...

    I wake up a few moments later with my face covered in my own urinal piss, but I didn't have any pain in my head or face. Completely overrated power.

    Ngannou couldn't finish a non washed Stipe, despite landing bombs. All of Ngannou's KOs are against ancient relics, and Blaydes/Rozenstruck.
