Again, you don't punch any harder while wearing a weighted vest, which a Sumo wrestler does in the form of fat. Heavyweights don't hit harder simply from weighing more, its the benefits of functional lean body mass that add to punching power.

wtf

I've seen Rampage do 1800 psi on a show. Enzo Macrinelli was recorded as having the same fource as a transit van hitting you at 30 mph. All the research I've seen suggests that heavier fighters hit harder even p4p than lighter fighters.
I don't believe the punchers are born theory. I train both boxing and MMA. I have always thought boxers have better punches. My trainer who has had several fights in both said he's never even been buzzed in a cage. I would say that of course an MMA guy normally wins a fight. Also boxing gloves actually cause more damage than MMA gloves do to the brain although they prevent superficial damage. Boxing has a lot more deaths than MMA because it is all concentrated striking with more damaging gloves. As far as I know there has only been deaths in Vale Tudo (which has less rules).

Ha ha, remember that bullshit where they tried to make Coutore like he was gonna actually and try n fight Toney instead of gay ass wrestle.

They thought he was gonna punch harder, but Toney punched at 1300 lbs, which was over 1/3 higher than Couture.

Then they said,....well uh, Couture can do dirty boxing.

Shit didn't happen though.

He was way too scared to throw his hands.

Yeah, like I said three ****ing years ago (seriously, why dig this stupid thread up?), the fact that a big strong guy that knows how to punch can his as hard as a heavyweight boxer doesn't surprise me. The key here people is that BOXING IS ABOUT 20% PUNCHING, and what makes up the difference from big guys that hit hard and boxers is that boxer can throw hard punches without winding up or getting off balance and can throw them accurately and in combinations, all while moving their head and feet.

This comparison reminds me of trying to put one of those "world's strongest man" goons who has never played football out there and ask them to block and NFL nose tackle. They may both be strong and such, but there are a million techniques that the pro will use to make the other guy look ridiculous that have nothing to do with strength.

Couture crushed and owned Toney. Everybody but you knows all about it, including Toney.
