    Usman just scored a devastating KO how does his power compare to the power of the hardest punching boxers in history? (not including any boxers that weighed more than he does?.

    I think Usman is an exceptional fighter. He has exceptional timing. Masvidal tried the knee he knock Askren out with, and Usman caught him in air for a takedown.
    I don't know if Usman is exceptionally powerful. McGregor may hit harder respective to weight divisions. Hell, McGregor might hit harder period.

    No way, Usman has far more one punch power than McGregor.

    Their records suggest otherwise. Including losses, McGregor has 19 ko's in 27 fights. Usman has 9 in 20.
    McGregor has 19 ko's in 22 wins. Usman has 9 in 19.

    Usman scored a devastating knockout. The secret of which is eating pounded yam in Nigeria since you were a kid.

    Usman won't be beaten any time soon. He's too good.

    McGregor has only scored one KO at welter though and most of his KO`s came against fighters much smaller than himself who would n`t have lasted v Usman as they were so small by comparison, even if Conor can punch harder than Usman, none of his punches have matched the right hand that smashed Jorge, Conor has only finished 3 fighters with one punch finishes.

    Fair points. Perhaps as a striker, Conor is a better finisher, not necessarily more powerful. Usman has a wrestling base.

    His striking game has improved to complement his wrestling skills.

    It's always pure speculation as to who hits harder. I'm not aware of an accepted objective way to measure it.

    That was clearly a hard shot that took out Masvidal. Maybe just as importantly, it hit him right on the button and I don't think Masvidal saw it coming.
