His best shot metered at 113,999 units. It didn’t quite match up to Ngannou’s effort. However, Hall wasn’t too far away to be fair to him.

So the world record is held by a guy called Francis Ngannou. I’ve seen a video of him and he’s an absolute monster,” said Hall afterward. “As he stood, his hands were touching his knees. He has one of the biggest reaches I’ve ever seen,” he added further.

He holds to world record. It’s measured by the speed, force and a few other factors. He hit 129,000 units. That is the hardest hit on the planet,” Hall continued. “He’s a UFC title holder and has one of the hardest bangs on the planet 10 per cent off the world’s hardest punch we know of. Now I know what I’m doing, I think I can come back and smash that,” he concluded.

That decision has caused some outrage from Ngannou’s team. They believe the promotion hasn’t done the right thing as they didn’t wait for Ngannou to return to training. Nevertheless, one can expect ‘The Predator’ to be back on the horse soon. Who he defends his title against for the first time, remains to be seen.
