I was referring to the fact that it'd take a sledgehammer to KO someone with a shot to the forehead. I know that 'chin' doesn't specifically mean chin.

Franklin based on more technically sound striking, Wandy is tough but he is aging and his explosive aggressive striking has slowed down and he needs to evolve and quit leaving himself vulnerable to attacks since he isnt as fast anymore and overwhelming his opponents isnt as easy as it once was.

Dan throws his right hand like a guy trying to get the highscore on one of those punch power measuring things at a fairground. He has a killer left hook too. I'd deffo say he hits as hard as Wand.

Dan Henderson has some of the most overrated power ever. He hits hard but Wanderlei hits at 210 as hard as almost anyone at LHW.

This card is shaping up very nicley.

Wandy VS Franklin is an insane matchup.

I would agree except he hit chuck a lot and couldn't KO him, yet both Rashad and Rampage Ko'd chuck with one shot. Seems to me that they hit harder than Wandy. Or at least they landed perfect shots.

I don't think the way Dan fights lately has anything to do with the power he's shown in the past. Even Rampage said Henderson hits harder than anyone he's ever fought.
