    Look at this dude, all 5'6", 150lb of him, bravely tackling and wrestling A level monster athletes literally up to twice his size. Makes the bullying of divisions by certain fighters look all the more ridiculous.

    How can anyone claim that MMA has the world's toughest and bravest athletes when it's biggest names starve themselves half to death to avoid battling fighters their own size.

    So Rugby players are tougher than guys who fight for a living? Have that 5'6", 150lb guy cut 15 pounds and fight Cejudo. He'll run back to rugby real quick.

    Some of those collisions are fucking violent. That guy is getting CTE for sure.

    He's actually 5 ft 7 1⁄2 in 194 lbs. Definitely a beast though.

    Rugby - tackling dudes twice his size
    McGregor - tapping to Nate who is three times his size

    You're comparing apples and doorknobs.

    Totally different sport. Different circumstances.

    Comparing mixed martial arts to a completely different sport in order to support a flawed argument. This never goes anywhere productive.

    Getting punched in the face is different than wrapping up a guys legs and making him fall.

    Because the guys he's running into don't have the right to either :

    a. Punch/elbow his face in
    b. Throw him around in whatever way they like which would cause them to lose the ball.

    And the guy is like minimum 180. Put him in there against Usman lol

    I love in the 5th vid how the two guys sandwich him at the same time and then both explode off of him, while he is unscathed, because that's how physics works.

    it's also a bit easier to tackle someone when their arms are occupied holding a big oval ball...
