Martial arts punches generally involve much less force than those in boxing.

    Either of those two hitting someone with 4oz gloves on is a scary thought

    They are taught to snap shots because of the gloves you can`t punch the same way asw MMA fighters, they need less technique to score a KO because of their gloves.

    Karate and some of the other martial arts striking being used as the example are almost never used in MMA fights and this is another silly boxing v MMA thread and poor attempt at putting **** on MMA

    That last bit reminded me of a kid at school, who would hold a clench fist inside his jacket like it was a weapon when he was having a fight, he'd punch with it then put it back under his school blazer ready to throw again like it was hidden an no one knew. He use to talk about it like it was special, an under wraps for someone who wanted to have ago at him, daft twat. What's this punch your on about mate ??

    It's almost like a kind of a wierd leaping overhand. A guy that was really destructive with this is my man Igor:

    You can see that they hit as hard as anything a boxer throws. That said, apparently the way that they turn over can damage the fists if they land wrong. I know Vovchanchyn had steel pins in both his hands and could not close them after his career was done.

    No those punches look clumsy and don`t snap, that power would not translate wearing boxing gloves.

    On the Fedor clip his hand isn`t landing correctly he`s not landing with the knuckle part of the glove, that punch would be useless with a boxing glove.

    He has diverse striking like others but in MMAfights the punches almost every fighter throws are similar to boxing but usually not as good a technique.
    Theres zero proof boxers throw harder then MMA fighters,fighters like Francis Ngannou for example, hits every bit as hard as boxers like Tyson if not harder

    Hiya kid, maybe you want to get some specs and look at the clips again. Vov is absolutely wrecking people with single hits.

    I don`t think Ngannou would have the same effect with boxing gloves and he`s by far the hardest hitting MMA fighter of all-time.
