Does having big hands have any advantage in striking?

well from a physics point of view, force = mass x acceleration
if we assume the speed of every fighter's punch is constant, then yes bigger hands = more force

A small fist would concentrate that force to a tighter area, hitting someone "on the button" would deliver more force per square inch to "the button".
That said, precision punching is nearly impossible, so a bigger hand would be more forgiving but size differential probably isn't statistically significant in either direction.
