FiveOuncesofPain.com has recently learned from sources close to the fighter that Melvin Manhoef is currently “training like a maniac” for his upcoming middleweight showdown with fellow heavy handed slugger Robbie Lawler, and furthermore has made the trip out to the American Top Team in Coconut Creek for the match-up.

This isn’t the first time Manhoef has made the journey to the Florida based gym to sharpen his skills, as the feared Dutch knockout specialist admitted his intentions of returning to the gym in a 2009 conversation with 5 Oz.

“I will definitely go back to ATT to train,” said Manhoef. “The guys there help me to improve my ground skills and have become good friends of mine.”

That's a good camp to train to beat Robbie Lawler. He was recently submitted by Jake Sheilds and was caught by the late Evan Tanner.

Haha
Melvin does hit very hard.
But so do Rampage and Carwin. Can't forget Fedor.

I don't know who hits hardest, but I feel like the above 3 needed to be mentioned.

i thought houston alexander hits really hard and rampage hits twice almost twice as hard as him. So i think he probably has the most power or carwin.

I think Scott Smith hits hard to. Ask his last 2 opponets. I think Melvin has a good chance to win this fight. Robbie is a good fighter but he will bang with Melvin or at last try to and I just think Melvin is alot more dangerous on the feet. Either way I will enjoy the fight but would love to see Melvin do good in the US market.
