    5 punches from Poirier would knock out anybody here, as would one punch from Ngannou.

    Neither but Poirer. Ngannou’s single MMA weapon is three minutes of unbelievably powerful punches. He’d absolutely kill me if he landed

    Medically, assuming you're strong enough to take Ngannou's one punch without being killed, taking one hard punch does less damage than five half as strong ones. The problem is that even the first punch from Poirer will concuss you, and then you take four additional punches on an increasingly concussed brain -- that can be deadlier than Ngannou's punch, and will almost certainly lead to long term neurological damage (slurred speech, headaches, depression etc).

    Are you allowed to try to duck the punch (ie is it in the cage)? That would make it even smarter to take the one from Ngannou -- your chances of ducking one punch (or at least not being hit solidly) is much better than of ducking five punches.

    I just watched an episode of the contender series where they said that the machine the ufc had that claimed Ngannou "hits like a ford escort" also says that a 145 female boxer with 0 knockouts in 44 boxing matches has the same power as Dustin Poirier. When Bisping heard that, he immediately said that Poirier hits like a girl <45>

    Either way the result would be the same.

    Francis or Dustin would be wondering what the hell happened.

    I 'd rather hit Poirer 5 times. Less chance of reprisal.

    5 from dustin
    because after 1 or 2 and we were out, he'd stop hitting us.

    I'd rather get slightly wobbled by a lightweight than get sent into another realm by the heaviest hitter in the UFC.

    Can I at least TRY to dodge the punches?

    I wouldn't even want to risk it wit Francis so I'd take my chances wit Dustin either way.

    Gettin punched by Ngannou? Fuck that

    That's hilarious that you think 5 punched from Poirier would only slightly wobble you lol
