HW: Arlovsky
LHW: Chuck
MW: Hendo
WW: Davis
LW: Gomi

* Another factor to this: are we talking about standing punching power...or punching power from top position....in guard, half guard, side or mount ???

That would open up some mention of several more fighters.....

My list was for standing power.

p.s. Tim Sylvia is not a very powerful puncher.



Because you don't like him? Or what? I'm sure Cabbage, Ricco, Gan McGee, and Arlovski would agree with you though


big nog said sylvia hit him harder than he has ever been hit before...so take that for what it's worth.

Don't get your panties in a twist. I didn't say he wasn't accurate or didn't have a huge reach or a good jab. I said he didn't have the power behind his punches that is being discussed here. He's never thrown anything more than a jab or a short uppercut. To answer your question, I do like Sylvia. I don't like his attitude of recent... but thats just becuase he's losing fights and fans. The ts wanted our OPINIONS on who is the most powerful puncher in each division. I thought it out well and gave my opinions... with that said... In relation to most considered powerful punchers in the Heavyweight division, Tim Sylvia is not a very powerful puncher.

read my above post...how can you say he isn't a powerful striker when big nog, who taken a beating by CC, fedor and countless others, said he hits harder than any other HW nog has faced. it just doesn't add up to me to come to your conclusion when you have people who ave been in there with the best saying that he hits hard.

We are entitleld to out opinions. No need for anyone to get bent over it. That being said, I will take Nog's word on this over any of ours, since he has actually been hit by Sylvia. .
