UFC famous commentator Joe Rogan beat UFC heavyweight knockout artist Francis Ngannou’s ‘PowerKube’ score with a kick at the UFC Performance Institute.
Earlier this year, the Cameroonian-French Ngannou made headlines when he set the record for highest punching power ever measured at 129,161 units on the UFC’s PowerKube. He beat the previous record set by kickboxing champ Tyrone Spong which was at 114,000 units.
Rogan fight in amateur kickboxing bouts, retiring with a 2-1 record after suffering from a constant headache and fearing the long-term outcomes. Rogan has got some serious martial arts talent and held black belt under Eddie Bravo’s 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu.
Despite the fact that he last fought over thirty years ago, no doubt Rogan now possesses one of the most powerful kicks in the world it seems, if the “Power Kube” machine is to be believed. Last week, Rogan hit a score of 152,000 on the PoweKube with one of his kick and broke Ngannou’s lofty record.
Rogan posted the video on social media, shows him at the UFC Performance Center hitting down some of those thunderous kicks on a Powerkube machine that sounds like a gunshot when they land:
On the latest episode of The JRE MMA Show, Rogan spoke about his experience:
“I think [Ngannou] got 120-something,” Rogan said of Ngannou’s score. “129, that’s so crazy! That’s what I get with a kick – with legs that carry you around all day.”
“He got 129,161 with a punch, I got 152,000 today, bitch,” he added of his more recent score.
Back in 2011, Rogan posted a video of himself teaching how to enhance the power in his kicks to former UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre.
