Maki Pitolo has a professional win finishing rate of about 77%.

As you probably gathered from his very relevant nickname, ‘Coconut Bombz’, the Hawaiian native has some very, very heavy hands.

Maki has bounced between the middleweight and welterweight division while in the UFC, opting for the 185lbs version of himself. That is the division that Pitolo got his first-round finish of Justin Sumter on the 2019 season of DWCS. This performance was a perfect display of just how much punching power Maki possesses as he crumpled his opponent with a few very powerful punches to the body.
