    Does Rumble have better striking techniques, more power, or both?

    No two strikes ever land the same. That's how.

    Because Rumble doesn't believe in his cardio and blows his wad in the first round. Sometimes it pays off. Sometimes it doesn't. Because they're different fighters.

    Rumble was the third best LHW. That same rumble would most likely be champ if he fought today. We will see if post cycle post bodybuilder rumble can do the same.

    Because he's the hardest hitting LHW of all time.

    Rumble at LHW has Ngannou-levels of power, pound for pound.

    There's a difference between that and being a good puncher like Thiago Santos.

    His strangely performed uppercut made contact directly on the lower right side of Glover's chin/jaw, and most likely punched with enough force to break Glover's jaw since Glover's teeth flew out despite the mouthguard.

    So a punch coming from someone as powerful as Rumble hitting an area where hitting it has a higher chance of dislocating someone's jaw pretty much would result in a KO, unlike Santos' punches which didn't land as clean as Rumbles' did.

    That's not true at all. Rumble has shown composure over 3 and 5 round fights before.

    Yep, that's why I think Phil Davis has a GOAT level chin, dude took 3 rounds of ammunition from Rampage and was still there.

    You're talking about Kevin Jackson. Kevin Jackson took 3 rounds of punishment from Phil Davis.
