It's not Ben Askren.
BMF Jorge Masvidal recently conducted a fan Q&A on his YouTube channel, and was asked who in his 17-year, 48-fight career was the hardest puncher.
“He never caught me clean in the fight but, I felt his raw power, and I was like, ‘Man this guy’s got good pop,’ was Paul Daley,” said Masvidal, as transcribed by Farah Hannoun for MMA Junkie. “Paul Daley had good pop, and I was also a little lighter in my career this time, but I remember he hit me in the arms a couple of times, and I saw his left hook coming and I could feel his thud.”
“Till has the most power of anybody that I’ve faced so far. I remember his lead hand – he’s very well-balanced, it wasn’t just his straight left that’s powerful, his lead hand, when he hit me with a jab, it felt like a regular person’s right hand. Just like a regular right hand, it was like a thudding jab.
“It’s between the British fighters I guess – Till and Daley – but I’m gonna lean towards Till. Till definitely’s got a little bit more pop.”
