Are Rockhold and Weidman the strongest MW ever, physically speaking ?

    These guys are BIG. They can wrestle/grapple the shit out of the majority of the MW fighters, hell even most of the LHW roster. With the new standards of training, weight cutting, and considering their height/reach, is it safe to say there is no match for them in physical standards ?

    I mean Silva could handle big Bonnar, yet he looked like an old man against Weidman, especially after the knockdown while clinching. I even think Jacare and Romero (without the juice) would be manhandled as well.
    As for Luke, he is just so strong on the ground.. His kicks are lethal and i had the impression he was playing with kids when he faced Bisping or Machida.

    Do you see anyone coming for them anytime soon ? I feel these two will be hard to deal with for quite some time

    Rockhold looked like he was a weight class above Weidman when they fought.

    How he makes 185 is beyond me.

    Considering neither is at their natural weight, the answer is probably yes.

    & Romero is pressing 40. He would have snatched that leg clean off if he was in his 20s.

    I would say Sonnen was stronger than both guys. People forget that Sonnen has much better wrestling credentials than both and he fought at close to 210lb with cardio for a full five rounds. He wouldn't have been an easy fight for either guy. People let the Jon Jones fight fool them, but Jones would ruin Rockhold and Weidman as well.

    Yea Romero is the strongest guy in division in my opinion. Not far should be Roided Vitor. And now the rest of division.


    A middleweight huh? :D

    Weidman came in 192lbs. He was a weight class ahead of him.

    But Romero is not natural. Imagine Weidman on PED's.
