Johny Hendricks is such a nice guy that he kills people with kindness. Unfortunately, kindness is also what he calls his left hand.
At UFC 154, Hendricks landed his bomb of a left hand to put Martin Kampmann to sleep in just 46 seconds.
It was the third time he's ever recorded a knockout within the first minute in his UFC career. The stoppage earned him Knockout of the Night honors and a $70,000 bonus check. It also put a halt to any discussion of past knockouts coming from a "lucky punch."
There is still no word from the UFC if it earned him a shot at UFC gold but when his time comes, I hope that the champion has a chin of granite. If not, we'll be hearing Bruce Buffer call out "AND NEW UFC WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WOOOOOORLD...JOHNY HENDRICKS!!!!"
Hendricks may be the latest destructive striker in MMA but there were many to come before him. Let's take a look at the top 10 Greatest Power Punchers in MMA History.
