    I noticed for awhile now that he looks like he has a slight hunch back, I remember it being very visible during his strikeforce fights. My dad has scoliosis and he has that look to his back too.

    Just looks like his fighting stance to me, perhaps a relic of his boxing background.

    Gotta be this, no way the commission will clear him to fight with scoliosis.

    Lol boxers aren't trained to lean and bend, they're trained to bend at the knees. He must have had an awful trainer.

    imo internal rotators induced kyphosis , which is pretty common in combat sports due to front delt/lats development and guard/defensive posture chin tucked + hands high in front of the face

    It's not his fighting stance, I first noticed it when he was walking around the strikeforce cage before a fight and he still had a hunch back.

    Scoliosis definitely doesn't impede your ability to lift weight, unless you allow it to.

    I think George Sots had the most noticeable case. Most people have it in some form or another it just may not be as reconizable .
