Yeah, Junior is a big dude with abs. I think he has one of the best physiques for a HW.

This study of yours is not dependable for making any conclusions. But I know its for fun. The heavyweights who have unimpressive physics can probably thank genetics because I'm sure they work just as hard so the results should be similar in terms of performance.

I would have put Fedor in the bad physique category as well.
Werdum's got a very Damien Maiaish body. No pecs, no abs, yet decent obliques.

I see that stat showing better MMA fighters who faced tougher competition on average beating the rotund ones. Barnett's the only long-time quality HW of the chubby group, while the crossfit group has 3 fighters who were or are in the top 5.

The disadvantages of being fat in MMA outweigh the benefits. Roy has a gimmick going on, but to be fair, Hunt & Soa are build that way, heavy.
