    What an absolute beast. The guy has ragdolled fighters like Bigfoot, Barnett, and Gus and is the same height as a lightweight. Crazy.

    MIke Tyson is "smaller" than Max Holloway.
    Height =/= size.

    One of DC's legs is equal to two of Poirier's...

    Height is no indicator of true size otherwise guys like Kendal Grove would be fighting heavyweights...

    In your title you say size...then you say same height. which is it? height and size are completely different...height is only 1 aspect of size.

    No...he wasn't....he weighed what ali weighed...what frazier weighed...what foreman weighed in his prime...so no, he wasnt small sized...he was a bit short, but not size wise.

    Yes.

    Tyson was basically a LHW by MMA standards.

    5'11 215-220

    He was substantially more muscular than D.C. and fought at a lower body fat percentage (in his prime for sure and probably in the later years as well), but he would have had an EASY cut to 205.... he wasn't cutting any weight so 218 or so was as big as he got in his prime in fight shape.

    I believe boxing had a cruiserweight as well as light heavyweight where he could have competed if he wanted, but why bother when he was demolishing HWs?
