    I mean there's a history of open-weight fights. 209 pounds would probably be a MW in the UFC, but we've seen much bigger weight differences in the past.

    I don't know shit about either of these guys, but a lighter fighter is almost definitely faster and likely has better cardio. Completely plausible that he wins.

    Or maybe he gets KTFO'd or taken down and brutalized worse than Gaethje

    Guess we'll see

    But if the lighter guy wins the fight and gets the UFC contract, he should probably move down in weight cause he won't have much of a career if he gives up 50+ pounds in a lot of fights

    Genki vs Butterbean:

    that’s nearly a 250 pound difference

    Normally you'd think he might be able to wear the fat guy out, but actually most of the HWs wins seem to be by decision.

    Pretty irresponsible matchmaking to do that with a 22 year old guy tbh.

    Sapp probably outweighed most of his opponents by over 100 pounds.

    For some reason my brain initially translated that as someone missing weight by 54 lbs and the fight was still on.

    That would have been one for the JBG.

    But yeah, thinking about it for another second it was obvious it was a "light" HW versus one of the usual chonky bros the UFC picks up for HW these days.

    Gerald Harris had an opponent miss 170 by over 50 lbs a few years ago. The fight still went on. Then this happened:
