    It's pretty obvious, you literally never see him do any kind of serious physical effort, especially not in videos. The vast majority of the pictures of him carrying anything significant are cropped at the edges, because he's not carrying anything. It's pretty hilarious once you've noticed that.

    A guy his size with decent BJJ should be more than enough to beat a basketball player with some boxing experience. Anyone with that size who is at least a decent blue belt should be able to neutralize anyone in the ground (until they gas) based on size alone.

    Doesn't that bodybuilder always say he'll fight but never does?

    Good point, I guess he just sucks it in for the camera and rests his weights on things.

    My money is on Gortat. Could play 30 minutes in the NBA so has some cardio, plus Dad was a boxer.

    Bodybuilding is one of the worst MMA bases if you are still enormous. At least Pudz was a strong man and he lost a lot of mass.

    I love these random fights.

    Ford is just too fucking big, if that guy can't get the knock out after a few minutes he's done.

    I'd say one minute of serious tieing up/grappling and him throwing a couple of emotional adrenaline-filled punches that whiff and he's about ready to have his hands on knees puffing air.
