You can't compare Gus power wise to Hendo because he isn't taking big steps and throwing bombs like he is pitching a fastball. Ever see when a bunch of people are trying to see how hard they can punch one of those machines in the bar? That is what Hendo looks like when he is throwing bombs. Apples to apples people.

You are saying we can't compare their power because they don't throw the same style of punches? I thought we were comparing how hard they hit during a fight? If you want to say that Hendo hits harder because he puts more into his punches then that's fine. But it's still saying Hendo throws with more power.

I guess it kinda is what I am saying here, that doesn't necessarily mean Gus can't throw as hard as Hendo but rather that they have different styles were Hendo relies on that one super hard shot that he puts it all in and totally commits to while Gus has a more stick and move kinda style. I don't know who can hit harder but in there fights its kinda obvious that Hendo does thus far at least on a more consistent basis.

A guy that big who knows how to punch will generally hit VERY hard. And as Toxic has pointed out, Hendo throws with his whole body. Gustaf throws straight and picks his shots, dropping people with timing and accuracy... imagine if he punched like Hendo and landed it.

Gustaf hits hard, end of, and I'd pick him to (T)KO Hendo.

You think Gus can do what no man has ever done? I think you are insane. Hendo's jaw can take anything Gus has to offer. I don't feel as confident the other way around. Gus could very well win, but he wouldn't TKO Hendo, not now, not ever. Gus won't even crack the top 5 in punching power that Hendo has faced.

Hendo is 41 and got knocked silly in his last fight, he said himself that he was KO'd on his feet in the 4th round against Shogun. The only thing certain in this sport is that nothing is EVER certain.
