    he has the power to ko heavyweights. Question is: can he take their power? Only time will tell.

    Yup but not having to cut any weight may be a benefit to his chin. Even now, he's cutting from 230 lbs to make 205, it's insane he was ever able to make 185 and that might have played a role in not being able to withstand the Adessanya strike that KO'd him.

    yes its a shocker he was able to make 185. I suspect you are right. He may be able to absorb better punches weighing 230 lbs. I don't think he could take Nnganou's power (i know Francis is no longer in the UFC) but he may be able to take Aspinall's power.
