    You'd be surprised the amount of fight fans out there that cant differentiate between muaythai and kickboxing.

    Yeah but that's mostly because he is too big for them. If everybody was his height he wouldn't be the best. He lost to Choi Hong Man . a guy with laughable technique... but one that could match his height.

    Branko Cikatic wouldn't have been the first K-1 champ without his insane KO power, Mark Hunt wouldn't have been a champ without his chin, Peter Aerts wouldn't have been a champ without his kicking ability. Every champ has specific traits that make him who he is. You can't dismiss Schilt just because he was taller than others. Also, that Choi fight was bullshit.

    I just think Reem has freakish genetics to begin with so you put him on the juice and its much more of an advantage.

    Dunno bout that, the difference between horsemeat reem and regular reem is pretty stark. He obviously has skill and athleticism but when he was on the sauce he was a straight up monster.

    The point was in regards to him "juicing more" than others. They were all juicing, he just had a larger frame already to carry that muscle.

    I think what made him a monster was when he was at his peak of horsemeat consumption he was primarily competing in K-1 where he found a lot of advantage in being able to utilize a tight high guard with the gloves, while not having to have take down concerns. His biggest weakness is his jaw, and he was able to protect it better in Kickboxing, combined with him being big and imposing and would muscle guys around and bully them with his strength. It was a combination of factors that gave him success in that period and horse steaks certainly played a role. I felt like his technique was more clumsy though.
