    Where the smaller competitor won, that is. One fight that comes to mind in Gerard Gordeau vs Yuki Nakai. Gordeau is listed at 6' 5" and 216 lbs while Nakai is/was 5' 7" and 154 lbs. Nanak eventually submitted Gerard via heel hook after being partially blinded by him (video available online). Are there other known examples of such a huge disparity where a smaller fighter actually wins? Post videos or other evidence here.

    I would be amazed if the answer didn't involve Minowaman.

    Hilarious thing is, I can't think of any real freakshow fights where the smaller guy DIDN'T win.
