Think of a hammer, the longer the hammer the harder it is to be precise.

The perfect athletic human being is 6'1-2" and roughly 200 lbs. Anything taller and you start losing ability. At this height/weight you can have the cardio, be as strong as bigger men but also agile and quick like the little guys. This man can out arm-wrestle huge mother fuckers, can throw the fastest pitches, can register the hardest kicks/punches, can swing a golf club the fastest, can catch any football or field any ground ball etc etc. Sure real tall guys can be sprinters and stuff while little guys can be rock climbers or something. They can do those things better.

Ever train with tall lanky mofos? They are always the ones landing low blows, head butts, eye pokes etc etc. uwotm8

Bullshit! Well roundness in mma is spread pretty even through the divisions. Look how many well rounded guys at MW, LHW and HW (smaller roster so less)

Haha, Josh telling it like it is.

There are some notable exceptions but they're usually the cream of the crop - champions, highly ranked fighters like Machida, Jacare, Rockhold.

Some heavyweights don't even have one dimension.

He's right. Before you say "so he's badmouthing Cain, DC, Rockhold???" there's a reason those guys are all at the very top of their divisions, they're well rounded. A lot of guys in those heavier weight classes aren't as you move down the rankings, that's just a fact.
