    What if you're even smaller than them yourself, though? MM could easily make 115. He's 5'3" and slightly built. Almost everybody he fights is taller and/or more heavily built than he is.

    rofl.
    "At heavyweight, the more skilled fighter tends to win" one of the biggest reasons, why HW is so dangerous: An unskilled HW can still destroy a skilled HW.

    In the smaller weight classes (I know there are bad match ups) the better fighter wins 99.99%.

    Kurt is about 100x the athlete and wrestler Cormier is.

    An unskilled heavy beating a skilled heavy is still pretty rare. That's why guys like Fedor, Cain, DC rarely lost in their prime. Cain got knocked out by Junior, who was far from unskilled. Fedor lost his hunger and lost to a very skilled Werdum, as did Cain later on. DC is still undefeated at heavyweight, he's only lost to Jones at 205, who's arguably the GOAT and was probably juicing both times.

    Some of these replies are hilarious, acting like Fedor fought good competition lol. Only a few guys were actual competition. The caveat left out of this is that only a few of Fedor's fights were actually even title defenses because most of his fights weren't even against guys ranked high enough for title fights. They were freak show fights that would make money, because that's what Pride did. People complain about UFC doing it now, but Pride was WAY worse.

    Fedor fought guys way bigger than him. He could have fought at MW but dominated the HW premier HW division for years. He fought a lot of cans, but he also fought the best.

    DJ is a great fighter but if anyone think his reign is more impressive, my best guess is that the person started watching MMA a couple of years ago and believes that all the hype from the UFC marketing machine is true.

    Nope.

    Most of these guys are GOATZ, not just some "skilled" dudes.

    Ngannou almost killed Stipe. He was lucky that his punch didnt connect 100%. Ngannou is P4P one of the worst punchers ever.

    Brock made TRT Randy & Mir his bitches.

    DCs HW resume is fucking overrated. It was hit or miss.

    One mistake = knock out/whatever.

    in a few months i can finally create threads. then i can educate a few noobs.

    Hopefully you'll be banned before then, troll.
