    3. Ortega vs Frankie. Looked either one or even two weight classes bigger.
    2. Khabib vs Tibau. For being such a large LW Khabib looked absolutely dwarfed in this fight. It is downright baffling how Tibau made 155 the night before.
    1. Woodley vs Marquardt. For being such a large WW Woodley looked tiny in comparison. One of the least talked about monster weight cutters was WW Nate during this time.

    Honorable mention of course goes to Rumble. Vs Brenneman I remember it being pretty absurd.

    Rumble vs Brenneman was insane

    Came here to post Tibau vs anyone at 155

    Ben Henderson vs Pitbull in Bellator

    Brandon Thatch vs most WWs

    Romero vs Machida too considering Machida used to fight most of his career at LHW you would think it was Romero that would be the one who looked smaller but no.

    The most notable for Tibau is his Uno fight.

    Anthony Johnson vs. Japanese guy who weighed 168 lbs.(in the UFC) so that would be like Rumble fighting a large featherweight.

    Not sure there was much of a difference really, especially seeing as how Khabib cuts loads of weight too.

    Khabib is a little less cut on fight night but “absolutely dwarfed”!? no way.

    Yeah that's probably the better example as Uno seemed skinny in comparison. I don't recall vs. Khabib being that crazy.
