I understand Manhoef can hit hard but it's not always just about pure power. I'm not taking anything away from him in saying this but: Let's remember a strike landed at just the right time and place can put anyone down even the mighty Hunto. Sure he has an Iron chin/head, that's obviously been proven over the years but when the stars line up just right it doesn't take alot of power to KO anyone.
Like I said, not taking anything away from Manhoef and I know Hunts' been in alot of wars and took some incredibly hard shots but I believe this was just one of those perfect shots in just the right place at the right time.
If you have no extensive training in the striking arts, please keep the flaming and shooting down this truth to a minimum. In addition discussing how X fighter hit him harder or just like that and didn't even rock him is a mute point, obviously something was different about this particular shot and it wasn't just power or Hunto being in too many wars.
It very well could have been right place at the right time, but the only real difference between this and the Crocop LHK is that the Crocop fight happened where Hunt could get a standing count for a recovery. I find myself wondering if there were standing counts in MMA if Hunt would have recovered or not.
Regardless of whether he would have or not it says something to compare a middlweight's looping punch to quite possibly the hardest hitting striking weapon in all of combat sports. (CC's LHK)
