Alex Pereira appears to have smashed the power-punching record previously set by former UFC heavyweight world champion Francis Ngannou.

On Saturday night (April 13), ‘Poatan’ will step back inside the Octagon ready to defend his 205-pound title against ex-champ Jamahal Hill in the UFC 300 headliner. 

Days before main eventing the biggest card in UFC history, Pereira added another accolade to his laundry list of accomplishments by absolutely destroying Ngannou’s record on the PowerKube — a device designed to measure one’s overall punching power. 

In a video clip shared by Happy Punch on X, Pereira blasts the punching pad with a massive right hand that scores 191,796 frankin (a unit used by the PowerKube that combines power and energy) on the readout — more than 60,000 higher than Ngannou’s record-setting score of 129,161.

Now, we just sit back and see if the record stands or if this turns into another Joe Pyfer situation.

Alex Pereira Defends His Title Against a Fighter Hellbent on Reclaiming the Crown They Never Lost

Pereira’s first defense of the light heavyweight title this weekend will come against a man hellbent on reclaiming the crown he never lost. In January 2023, Jamahal Hill secured a decisive decision victory over Glover Teixeira to win his first UFC gold. Sadly, ‘Sweet Dreams’ was never able to defend the belt as he suffered a ruptured Achilles in July while participating in a charity basketball game.

Hill was forced to vacate the title, paving the way for Pereira to pick it up at UFC 295 with a stunning second-round knockout of Jiri Prochazka

Check out the official preview for Pereira vs. Hill at UFC 300 below:
