    I can't really think of too many fights where this happened. Probably only Frankie Edgar beating the hell out of Gray Maynard during their last fight. Can anyone think of any others?

    Used to happen in the old school days, pre weight classes. Igor V knocked out a couple of guys who had 50 - 100 pounds on him.

    Royce made a career out of it. Him vs Akebono being a prime example

    I consider them about the same size.

    I prepose Cain Lesnar as a better answer.

    Lol at Edgar destroying Maynard. A TKO loss doesn't mean he got destroyed, if anything Edgar was the one who got destroyed in that fight despite winning.

    Fedor v Zuluzinho and Hong Man Choi, I'm sure he was outsized in a lot of other ones though. This photo looks like a toddler wrestling with his dad!

    No two people are the same size if we want to get technical.


    I could only find this to confirm weights,

    And it says cain is bigger.
    I don't know if it is accurate, but yeah they are both mid size HWs to my mind.
