    On the same note: Bellator's version of The Kraken (6'8) is making his debut. Steve Mowry.

    He still doesn't look 6'8, but he looks like a full-grown man now.

    He didn't look particularly special though, but who knows it's fucking HW.

    You want to see an mma Titan? Check out Alex Simon. Powerlifter turned half decent fighter. Been meaning to post this guy for some time.






    I might still post a thread about this guy. Would love to see him on Dana's contender show.

    Adams would take Fraudor down with ease and finish him.

    Whoa, that guy looks like a beast. Most powerlifters I've seen tend to be very slow. He moves impressivly fast for such a big guy and obviously has a ton of power.

    The way Hardy fights he will probably gas out in two minutes if he can't KO his opponent, the next Ngannou.

    Once Hardy learns to pace himself and fight with more patience, he's gonna be a handful for anyone. Will he ever be champ? Maybe, maybe not. But he'll easily be top 10 in no time.

    Im not judging your post or picking at you but......

    How can one be an "A level" athlete and still be expected to gas?

    "A Level Athletes" don't necessarily have unlimited cardio.... Hardy's hand speed, footwork, balance, power and explosiveness are certainly elite for a man his size, but we don't really know how good his MMA cardio is at this point. And anyone who fights like a madman in the first few minutes of a fight will gas eventually.... He needs to learn to pace himself. Which I'm sure he will, training at ATT.

    The people we call A level athletes all compete in sports that you don't need unlimited cardio for. Sports where you get regular breaks, every 10-20 secs.
    People usually look at the footballers and call them A level athletes. While I admit these people are the cream of the crop, and have the most transferrable skills to MMA (as compared to basketball, soccer, baseball) they have little use for cardio as plays don't last for more than 10-15 secs usually. And then they get a 3-5 min breaks, enough to recover your 'cardio'.
