The force from the punch is exactly the same the difference is the contact surface. One is a pointed edge the other is two knuckles.
To tell you the truth man I have been in the Martial Arts for 18 years and have studied everything from elbow strikes to BJJ, I am by no means an expert but I do know a "little" something about striking and MMA. You have your opinion and I have mine, but my opinion is backed up by:
1) Years and years of training & teaching
2) Physics (can't argue with Science
3) Research (look at how most MMA fighters KO people out)
it's the "law of averages"
