    Simple question. We all know at a certain point size overcomes superior skill. If Mighty Mouse was to the fight the 100th ranked LW in the world, who would you bet on?

    Who is the 100th ranked LW?

    I'd imagine MM.

    MM vs the 1000th ranked HW would be cool.

    If it weren't for these types of threads, the Wasteland would be completely empty.

    At what point does size overwhelm skill?

    It's not any worse than your typical thread that a Conor nuthugger will make about his latest instagram or twitter post.

    Yeah I agree. I was hoping it would land on a young prospect who cuts alot to 155.

    Instead we got what's left of Gomi lol

    It's a tough choice, honestly I could see it going either way. It'd be interesting to hear from guys who train. I've never trained MMA, but from my training (mostly from watching the actually good guys), I'd say a 30lb weight disparity requires a significant skill advantage for the smaller guy to compete. In pure BJJ, it's very doable. In most striking arts, it's far more difficult and more rare because it demands a much more unique athletic skill.

    Compared to pure striking or grappling, however, MMA isn't as "hands on." Since speed and movement is so important, I think that plays more in favor of a smaller guy's only path to victory against a bigger guy. He would have to outmove his opponent and rely on his quickness and technique to do it. That's Mighty Mouse's game.

    The question comes down to what the 100th ranked guy's skillset is like. First of all, I think if he's a specialist at anything, he's more likely to win. If he's an all-arounder, MM absolutely WILL be much better than him, but is that going to be enough?

    All I can say is guys seem to perform similarly as they move up in weight. If not better, really. And that's 15 pounds. So the question is whether one more weightclass is just insurmountable. I would guess no, but the fuck do I know.
