Francis Ngannou will face UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic in the UFC 220 main event, and he’s been scientifically recorded as the hardest hitting man of all-time.
But how hard does the hardest puncher of all-time really hit? Well, that’s the frightening part about it, because it’s really hard.
Taking to his presidential duties, Dana White said, “Francis Ngannou has the world record for the most powerful punch. His punch is the equivalent to 96 horsepower, which is equal to getting hit by a Ford escort going as fast as it can. It’s more powerful than a 12 pound sledgehammer getting swung full force overhead… Holy shit!”
It sounds like a bad promo for superman, but according to the UFC boss, these are facts, not fiction.
Here’s the replay of Dana White’s breakdown:
UFC 220 goes down from Boston, on January 20, 2018. The aforementioned Miocic vs. Ngannou fight is the evening’s headliner. In the night’s co-main event Daniel Cormier returns in defense of his title against Volkan Oezdemir.
