Comments Who do you think is a better fighter, and why?

huh? Francis Ngannou has "average" knockout ability?? He has the hardest punch ever measure by science. And Ngannou KOd Alistair Overeem with a punch so hard it rocked his head back and he fell back like a sack of potatos with his head bouncing off the mat. I think this is a touch match up for Stipe. He eventually KOd Alistair, but only after being rocked himself, and he took multiple strikes from GNP before putting Alistair out. Clearly Ngannou has the greater KO power.
