You are in denial if you think the "best physical specimen" is all it takes to be a champion in MMA.
It certainly wouldn’t hurt
There is quite literally no basketball player in the history of the sport with RJJ's handspeed and reflexes. There are very, very few people period that had anything comparable to what he had in his prime, tbh. RJJ's athleticism was designed to have him dominate the sport of boxing in a way that Kobe's athleticism allowed him to dominate the sport of boxing. That certainly does not mean that Kobe is a better athlete than Roy. If anything, the fact that RJJ was as decent as he was at basketball while being the best P4P of his generation at boxing should serve as proof that he was the better athlete. You ever see Kobe try to fight?
Or were you basically making the same argument as I just made?
Tai Tulivasa? Hell Greg would KO Stipe and Franny Ngannou as well.
I think you’re missing the point.
Greg Hardy vs Austen Lane was essentially a title fight. Lane was an NFL player as well, and the clear cut second best athlete in the UFC at HW. These two will probably fight each other for the belt 10 times.
You're point was a little murky to me at the time. Upon further reflection, I think you were trying to say that Roy, a C-Level b-ball player, was an A-Level boxer, thus implying that basketball players are better athletes than boxers by an incredible margin. If that's not what you were trying to say, then please just come out and let me know.
Any HW can be put on top10 with a solid ko.
I’m saying that being a level in one set of activities doesn’t mean you’re a level in all activities. Roy jones is a better athlete in a ring than any basketball player could be. On a court is a different story.
Charlie ward was not a great athlete when you watched him play basketball. But very few basketball players could win a heisman trophy.
He’s not even the best heavyweight on Contender’s, but ur crowning him lol...
JUAN ADAMS would wreck him, he fights 7/31, and at 6’6” 290 he’s prob a little bigger too
that bum should be in jail on fighting for a living.
I know not all fighters or saints. ie jon jones brock lesner but you a different kind of scum bag to put your hands on a woman.
He's an A level athlete, that's something HW is lacking.
I’m excited to see how he takes a beat down. Mentally, will he fold or eat it up is why I’d pay to see him fight. Hitting a girl isn’t the same as getting the crap beat out of you.
A guy who wears diapers is in top15. I think majority of NFL's linemen would eat him for lunch
