He haven't KO-d someone inside UFC with 1 punch so far (if you don't count Jose Aldo) but obviously hes more than capable of doing it.

the last 3 knuckles idea is from jack dempsey's book(s?) apparently

I noticed my pinkies were hurting a good amount so I started reading about the knuckles stuff and realized I should focus more on which part I punch with

Yeah, but Dempsey also fought in the 1910s-1920s and we've made some strides since then...

Being new, you probably aren't generating a ton of pop, but man, how you avoided breaking your hand is beyond me.

Sounds like you might be exagerating, if some champs in the stone age literally tried to hit with thier pinkies as hard as they could and didnt break their hands

That's a KD and TKO

How did "Conor doesn't have one punch KO power" become "Conor can't stop anyone".

I even said Conor was a solid favorite FFS

Boxers broke their hands all the time back then (I mean, they still do today), but the outside bones of the hand are smaller and weaker than the index and middle finger bones.

Not sure if it matters in this discussion, but on Wiki, Poirier win is by TKO and Aldo win is by KO.

No, I'm saying it wasn't a one punch KO. Words have meaning.

Because that's what they were. Poirier, Mendes, and most obviously and painfully, Eddie Two Lunches just got beat into submission.

Aldo got slept.

Conor is most likely going to beat Tony they same way he's beat most of his opponents. I don't think he's likely to starch him.

Re: EDF Big Drama Show COMBAT SPORTS (happy rep?) Thread

i mean.. he did land more than one on aldo too if we're just being nitty

not all one punch KO's have to have the other guy unconscious

what if in boxing the downed boxer tries to get up after a massive punch but cant stabilize on a 10 count? would that count as a one punch ko? basically poirier if that was boxing

Never boxed in my life and I fractured my hand near my pinkie like a moron punching a hard part of my sofa and now the exterior bone of my hand is slightly bent because of the course I didn't go to see a doctor when my hand was swollen like Mickey mouse's one.
