ESPN Sports Science: Gray Maynard Hits as Hard as a Heavyweight

Gray Maynard isn’t really known as a knockout artist, but he definitely packs a lot of power in his punches. ESPN Sports Science determined that Maynard hits with 1,400+ lbs. of force which is on par with some of the heavyweights they’ve measured. Not only that, Maynard has more grip strength than some NFL lineman twice his size and can ascend a rope using nothing but his upper body at a rate of 3 ft/sec.
