I'm guessing you never saw Tim Sylvia fight?
fury is 7 ft and 280 lbs but dude moves like a 4 ft 3 & 100 lbs guy
LMAO no. Tyson Fury is an elite athlete in an elite sport. He's been crafting his art for decades. MMAs best HW boxers are guys like Ngannou who decided at the age of 32 he wants to be a fighter and punched a UFC power machine.
Tyson Fury is the greatest current fighter alive. No one today beats him. They are all dossers.
dudes a terminator and was robed by the judges agains Wilder
There has been skilled HWs in MMA before. We are just in a terrible era for HW mma where the average age of the division is like 70 because for some reason theres not enough new talent coming through to retire the old guys. But if you go back to around 2011 I actually think HW MMA was briefly on par with or stronger than HW boxing. Pre-USADA, Strikeforce HW GP, prime Cain JDS and Brock in the UFC.
Its obviously not even close now though. HW boxing is vastly, vastly superior to HW MMA at the moment. In terms of athleticism, skill, depth, prospects....everything, basically.
We already have
I think the closest we've had was prime Arlovski. Unfortunately timed knockouts seemed to always derail his train though. So frustrating.
If you pay them, they will come
cormier barbarian bitch tosses him.
Cormier is a dosser
This is MMA, not boxing. You stand there and bob and weave you get taking down. You can't just stand there like that, it doesn't work in MMA. It doesn't make one or the other more "athletic".
He fought the 57 th ranked heavyweight that shit doesn't happen in the UFC
The best KO artist in the history of the UFC and mixed martial arts in general had those moves and showed us multiple times. He wasnt a HW tho.
These guys are slower and moving like that is indeed impressive.
Wait till Artem decimates Paulie!
Silva slipped punches better.
It’s easy to look amazing against inept opponents.
If all they had to worry about was punches, and there were ropes instead of a cage that they could bob their head over, sure...maybe.
But it’s a different sport.
