    Neither did George Foreman and 100s of other champs. Not that it mattered but still...

    Rest of the body looks the same while the belly got larger. That's genetics when you hit 30.

    I wouldn't criticize the body shape of a retired fighter.

    He did have the body of a champion. Your idea of the body of a champion is just wrong.

    Fedor's traps really shrunk later on, stopped kettle belling / deadlifting? Actually for his comeback he put on some disgusting mass for an old man, just his chest is noticeably flabbier, I guess him and his coaches don't consider pushing motions or the bench press to be important for MMA anymore.

    Sherdog forums and obsession with the male physique go hand and hand.

    He has good genetics, but he hasn't been on internal T and steroids unlike Jones and Silva hence that body of a normal human.

    Fedor didn't give a crap about his diet, he loved I've cream and if he wanted to get shredded he would've got back on the Mega Mass 2000.

    Fedor looks worse than he really is because he's chubby and clearly doesn't lift for arm or pec development.

    Viewed from behind, however, you can see he's damned thick.

    I would also say, look out for still shots of him when he's in action. There's a solid base of muscle under the chub.

    i have stoodnext to Fedor his reach is insane for his size. his arms are superlong, idk what his reach is but its definitely way above average for a guy 5'10 which is really how tall he is barefoot.

    I can't believe people still lie to themselves about "over 30 genetics" as if once you hit that magical number, your body goes to shit. What happens is people lose their passion for proper diet and fitness or simply stop being as active as they where in their 20's and continue or ramp up eating processed shit. That's why most people get fat when they get old. If you eat right and exercise into your 30's, 40's and 50's, you'll look just as good. You will lose bone density and some muscle mass as the years progress, but body fat can be kept off regardless of age.

    ^^^

    Wouldn't you lose T and have a harder time keeping on muscle and therefore lowering fat?
