Its really frustrating to be argued with because people either ignore the context or don't notice it at all. Ugh internet forums. >.<
You mentioned you don't personally
know any that have good technique and then went on to suggest "the high level pro fighters are a different story, because, well, they're high level pros"
That's not a valid argument, high-level pros don't "compensate"
for their anthropometric analogies by having good technique. They adapt their game and make their analogies work for them, and they adjust their BW according to their skill set. If anything, it's easier for low-level/amateur fighters who face lower-level opposition to compensate for short-comings like unfavorable anthropometrics or being in the wrong weight class, than it is for fighters fighting at the high levels.
