The 5 most dangerous weapons in MMA

Thursday, March 30, 2017

When it comes to the most dangerous weapons in MMA, there is a lot to choose from. Pretty much every fighter out there has a technique or two that they are really good with. The criterion for being a highly dangerous technique though is when that particular move can end the fight in a split second, oftentimes in brutal fashion.

Here are the top 5 most dangerous weapons in MMA, in no particular order.

5) Conor McGregor’s straight left hand punch

This is McGregor’s ‘money punch’ that he does most of his work with. While most of the other punching techniques on this list are looping, hook style punches, what makes McGregor unique is the amount of power he can pack into a quick, straight punch. He’s knocked out a who’s who list with his left hand including Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes, and most recently Eddie Alvarez. Is Floyd Mayweather next?
