    In Pride they had Ricardo Arona all jacked up on God knows what.

    Obviously it’s working for them to spend more time on the mat than in the weight room.

    But it’s interesting to note that the more physical muscular guys are wrestlers and strikers.

    BJJ guys have the more slender physique and don’t seem like they lift weights.

    Bigger muscles doesn't mean better fighter.

    It also doesn't mean more chances of winning.

    The more muscle you have the less flexibility you have. Makes sense to why most BJJ guys prefer to have a more natural physique..

    I think sooner or later we'll see less and less very muscular fighters, because everything else aside, you ideally have only some muscle while still being the approptiate size for a weightclass, in my opinion.

    Have you ever been to a BJJ competition? So many of them are roided up. Its just in the Ufc there's obviously USADA

    That's only true if you don't stretch and maintain flexibility as you gain muscle. Look up Alain Ngalani.. if you train flexibility + mobility concurrently with hypertrophy + strengthening you'll never lose it. Bodybuilders just don't necessarily care about it as much, which is where that idea comes from.

    I have not. I'm a UFC mark through and through. But there's no denying that the more muscular you are the less flexibility you have..

    There were videos of Maia lifting weights, maybe he doesn't look like shreded like many others, but some fighters mentioned he was very strong at 170

    This exactly. What an ignorant (in the true sense of the word as opposed to as a blanket insult) observation by OP.

    Nate isn't bad but putting him up there with Oliveira and Maia is weird.

    Jones isn't shredded but is strong af and Nate was also lifting weights with some jacked up youtuber recently. Then we have guys like Kevin Lee and many others that claim to not lift any weights.
