It seems former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos doesn’t agree with the majority of fans on who the greatest puncher in the division is.
The Brazilian is set to fight Jairzinho Rozenstruik this Saturday at UFC 252.
Everybody knows that one punch can change everything in the heavyweight division. For that reason, many people consider Francis Ngannou as the man with the most power in his hands.
But according to “Cigano”, there is one other man that doesn’t get enough credit and that is the current UFC champ Stipe Miocic.
Both Miocic and Nganou have defeated Santos via first-round TKO, but the Croatian beat the Cameronian-French fighter.
“Well everybody knows that Ngannou hits very hard and has a lot of knockout power. He has long arms but I don’t think so. The hardest hitter I’ve ever been hit from is Stipe Miocic. He hits very hard,” Junior dos Santos said on Just Scrap Radio on BJPENN.com.
“Everybody knows Ngannou has a lot of power and especially when he is able to connect with good punches because of the long arms. In our fight, I paid an expensive price for the mistake I made. I saw the opportunity and threw a very hard overhand right and I missed it and he was able to connect a hook right after that. The guy is a beast as everybody knows but he has a lot of limitations.”
