    Seriously, he wasn't gifted with good genetics like long reach Jones and cartoon super bodied GSP or the sword tattooed Lesnar

    Fedor was a short stalky dad bod most of the time and he OWNED everyone from the very huge to the very tall and everything else.

    Let's take a moment to appreciate that!

    You make no sense, he was a champion.....yet doesn't have the body of a champion? There is no body of a champion....heart of a champion yes......but there is no body of a champion I believe. I don't know this is just me, this is laughable

    Guess Chuck Liddell didn't either with his pot belly abs?

    Or Daniel Cormier doesn't either..I dunno bro maybe I'm missing something.

    Silva got the body of a lanky dude and he ran shit

    Fedor had good genetics, was very fast and explosive. Did carry some fat, but was still a ball of muscle, especially at his peak, but his style also suited his body type

    Anderson also isn't super ripped, but uses his tools available perfectly

    He was quick as fuck and evidently very strong for his size. Great chin and good instincts until he lost them at the end of his career.

    Champions: Tim Sylvia, Cain Velasquez, Daniel Cormier, BJ Penn, Ben Askren...

    It's not bodybuilding. Some guys perform better with some pudge and not dieting/depleting themselves to get ripped.

    Any baseball fans in here can attest that CC Sabbathia is better with the chubs.

    Question is - would be perform better if he bulked up? or if he cut to LHW?
    I don't think so. Being comfortable in your body is important. Fighting is not bodybuilding.

    all speculation... Jon Jones and Anderson we know for a fact so they deserve all the bashing they get but Fedor is innocent until proven guilty like everyone els

    Some guys stay in shape even though they have slowed down. Fedor obviously aged a lot as well but he also let himself go.
