    The UFC is the HIGHEST LEVEL OF MMA in the world(allegedly). His athleticism alone has won him many brutal regional Ko's. I think we can agree Hardy would at least win one fight in the UFC, of course he'll eventually run into a guy who just has a massive exp advantage and be defeated. But the mere fact that hardy can make it to the highest level of MMA just based off aggression and athleticism says it all.

    Eh?
    It's a popular meme that he's not physically tough. He played with broken fingers in high school, rammed his way into defenders multiple times. There is often an agenda in these team sports; a lot of flopping, so that's a rather different issue.

    Holy fuck Forrest is 240! That cut to 205 must have been hard.

    Dude was ducking heavyweight his whole career.

    You thought Shaq would have good cardio? Based on him bring almost 50? Retired for 10 years? 350lbs? Which of those points screams "good cardio" to you?
