JDS's size change

Anyone finds it strange that he was considered skinny and too small for the likes of Lesnar and Carwin when he debuted at 239. Then we see him getting bigger and bigger, now Rogan hypes him as a "huge, powerful HW" but he's only 3lbs heavier at 242? From the pictures over the 9 fights, it looks at least 10 lbs to me. It's not like he lost fat because he's always been ripped. What's your explanation?

Not that ripped, when he debuted he was well into double digit body fat%. He probably gets a bit heavier between fights too, building up muscle, losing a bit of weight as he gets closer to fight time, mostly being fat, with increased workout intensity. If he didn't get more muscular over time even on a calorie balance he would be seriously messing up his training.

Then there's of course other explanations which can only be speculated upon.

He actually debuted at 235 and the heaviest he's been was 241 against Roy.

He's not heavy, but he is a big guy. He just happened to debut when Lesnar and Carwin were supposed to be the "new breed". Look at him and crocop.

Yes and I prefer to speculate on those speculations. In fact Jds was quite speculative on other fighters speculations quite recently
