Does Daniel Cormier's broken hand mean he can no longer have reliable KO power?

Like he broke it on big foots head and it was a hell of a shot, BUT then in his next fight one of the first punches he landed caused the hand to break again, meaning he wasnt able to produce any significant striking power.

Well does this mean its gonna happen every fight?

I'm sure a larger forum would have better answers for such a complicated question.

He said he knew it was going to break. He hand healed incorrectly and it is very easy to break again. But he didn't want to delay the fight any longer for his hand so he just fought with it.

I would say no. The problem you see in a lot of mma fighters with their hands breaking is that they haven't been striking their whole lives. The bones in their hands haven't micro-fractured and rebuilt themselves hundreds maybe thousands of time from sparring or working a heavy bag without gloves.

Thing is damn near every striker in the world would be like this if they started fighting shortly after starting training. If you look at an x-ray of any boxer's hands it will show multiple fractures and a cornucopia of healed micro-fractures. It's why boxers work a heavy bag without gloves. It's why muay thai fighters will kick poles or trees.

What you are witnessing is him getting the bad version of body hardening in his hands. It won't effect his ko power but if he doesn't start the other training he will continue to suffer this particular injury.

I think he kinda ****ed himself over, all of that wrestling strength might of given him a lot of punching power, but he didn't sart striking until he decided to make the switch. My opinion could be completely stupid but thats what I think...
