Igor Vovchanchyn would be be on that list, although he is retired so i can see why not put him there.

other Hard hitters that come to mind are
Gomi
Hunt
Arlovski
Aleks Emelianenko
Irvin
Kid (for his size hes got alot of power)
Baroni
Soko

I'd probably take out BJ penn, Chuck needs to be a bit higher, take out Davis, take out Mirko (assuming we're talking about hands only, he hits hard, but there are other who hit harder), Hendo i dont think should be #1.....


But Manhoef hasto be on that list, and very high up (probably 1st)

Ok im going to assume this is mma fighters only and by "hitting" Power you mean with any limb, since you put mirko in your list too...
BTW.. how did bj make your list!?! lol not trying to be a jerk BJ is one of my favorite fighters but i wouldnt call him a hard hitter.




10. Chucky? Hunt? I dunno
9. Kimbo Slice
8. Quintin Jackson.. I dunno if its him hitting you or the mat hitting you.
7. Gomi.. for his weight those bombs are insane. This is P4p maybe he deserves a higher ranking.. O well im lazy.
6. Wandi.. his knees are insane
5. Tank.. I like when you knock a guy out and his body malfunctions.
4. Butterbean.. the dudes a joke in mma but the power is all there.
3. Dan Henderson.. the dude isnt a great puncher, but he can floor you if he lands.
2. Igor.. the mans legs are like tree trunks.. that is some awesome hip power in his punches.
1. Mirko.. Legs just hit harder then hands.

Theirs lots of hard hitters, its really hard to nail down a top 10. I mean, wandy hits hard, but i really dont think he hits that hard. You could easily throw guys like Sylvia, Rizzo, and Igor onto that list, even guys like houston and Soko have showed incredible power in their hands.

Cro Cop's legs and hands can do tremendous damage. His right leg but Yoshida down with leg kicks and his left hand acctually sent Coleman air born, we all know what his left leg can do. I'd go Hunt, Cro Cop then Melvin after that I don't know lol.

there is many. but if arlovski isn't on your list then you are nuts. In the second arlovski tim fight when arlovski dropped tim, not only did he fall like a ton of bricks but the sound soundedlike a birthday cake being dropped from a three storie building.

Tough to match up the big guys and the little guys, but by weight:

Kid Yamamoto (probably #1 p4p)
Takanori Gomi
Marcus Davis
Anderson Silva
Chuck Lidell
Tank Abbott (on the rare chance he landed)

Anderson Silva but i think he just puts it on the button.

The hardest hitter is probably Rampage. Hendo would be 2nd imo. 3rd is Drew McFedries
I would say brock can hit pretty hard too

Quinton Jackson said that the hardest hitter hes fought wasnt Chuck or Wanderlei, it was Kevin Randleman.......Have you seen the power he puts behind those punches? Too bad his technique isnt up to par.

(but this was before he fought Hendo so it could have changed by now)

Chuck, Wandy, Rampage, and BJ Penn. Watch the fight with Joe Stevenson, BJ's punches just make a different sound. Like watching a man fight a boy.

Jerome Le Banner
Peter Aerts (the most powerful high kick in the world!)
Ernesto Hoost
Badr Hari
Ray Sefo
Mark Hunt

etc etc

the hardest in MMA I think is Aleksander Emelianenko, just watch his win over Ricardo Morais at Pride Bushido 6, he hits him so fast its unreal, I can't believe Morais managed to stand through 6 of those sledgehammer shots before hitting the deck!

I still think p4p that if Gomi only got one punch he could probably knock out just about anyone. He has serious power. He probably doesn't get as much credit for his power that he should and he gets a lot of credit so thats saying something.
