    Well I was gonna say I never get complaints about it but I'm not a big guy compared to you ha, I'm 5'11 about 215 and pretty lean.

    To be honest the biggest pain in the ass guys for me to grapple against are fat guys. Muscular guys,of the same weight are much less difficult then big belly guys Regardless, its something you have to learn to deal with.

    A belly pretty much close the space to get an underhook. There's load of times when lean people are on top of you, they do a move and their stomach and abs do a contraction, it gives you space. The belly is less likely to contract enough to give you space.

    Morning
    2 x Eggs
    3 x Chicken Sausage
    1 xProtein shake
    1 x Oatmeal

    Lunch

    Huge steak or practically half a whole chicken
    big side of veggies
    bread/rice
    dessert

    Dinner

    Oatmeal
    Protein Shake
    Fruit


    And threw in granola bars throughout the day. It's not so much what I eat, but the amount, powerlifting became an unhealthy obsession which I'm dropping so my eating and lifting is a lot different today, I was starting to develop back problems.

    Yeah I can definitely see that, doing a Roy Nelson/Daniel Cormier where you put your stomach on them is frustrating.

    I freq ask what people are weighing to help me calibrate, but it goes both ways. If I tool a guy a bit lighter than me and he looks down about it I always ask him what his weight is and round mine up a bit and tell him that he did well and the weight makes a big diff.
