    y not so much in pride, infact ive seen more fights in pride end by hammerfist than in the ufc....

    You absolutely CAN generate knock out power with a hammer fist.... when used with a lot of power, it tends to be a telegraphed strike, thus more easily blocked strike however.

I can't remember if he caught Crocop with a hook or a cross but it sure as heck wasn't a hammerfist. Crocop was out by the time he hit the ground.

    You've been proven wrong about hammerfist strikes repeatedly by the guys posting here. Stop calling fighters sissys and look at the reality.

    watch total elimination 2004, heath herring knocked out that japanese guy with hammers, final conflict 2005, shogun knocked out arona with hammers, but after a grazed stomp. but still finished with hammers. hammers are effective in mma. it's way better than poking someones eye (liddle) :grinsmile26:

    Hmmm...I have alwasy thought that hammerfists were just a totally dominating attack. Your opponent has to cover up or get a fairly strong blow to the face.
    Trust me it's very deastating to hammer somebody nose into there skull.

Now I know they may sometimes be the only way to get some strikes in on an opponent because of the way he may be defending but ,still, don't they look a bit on the sissy side? Wouldn't a hook to the side of the head be a lot better and do more damage?
