    How many high paying sports WITHOUT WEIGHT CLASSES can a 125 pound man compete at the highest level at ?

    NFL nope
    NBA nope
    Baseball nope
    Ice hockey nope
    even Soccer and tennis are out

    outside of combat sports which have weight categories there are very very few high paying professional sporting options

    No one gets rich from the other possibiilties like weightlifitng, gymnastics, olympic wrestling etc

    Muggsy Bogues in the NBA. Weirdest thing was watching a 5'3" player next to everyone else.

    Muggsy Bogues already proved you wrong for NBA, Im not sure of his weight but he wasnt more than 5'6".

    Champion jockeys make fucking bank.

    There are tiny freak athletes like DJ all over the place.

    Muggsy Bogues is a one in a thousand if not more and proves nothing

    Fact is if a youngster who is looking like he is going to end up at around 125 pounds and 5 ft nothing has dreams of being in the NBA, it's a 99.9 percent chance it aint happening

    How many professionals sports are you at the top of the heap at? Oh none. Guess not being a manlet didn’t help your fatass make any money. Shame

    Cycling..

    top team in cycling has a budget of $45m a year for 30 riders.. win the Tour and you are looking at $1m

    140lb walk around be perfect to be a climber..

    top team in cycling has a budget of $45m a year for 30 riders.. win the Tour and you are looking at $1m+ easy

    140lb walk around is perfect.. most Grand Tour winners are in the 60-65kg range..

    Darts...

    #1 in the world has made nearly $3m in the last 2 years, and thats just prize money.. doesnt include sponsors, Someone like DJ with his gaming background, precision, focus, could be perfect for him..

    Sounds like it. The manlets are just playing the hand they've been dealt in life. I don't see the reason to hold it against them.

    I'm just laughing because it was an easy answer TS doesn't realize some of the smallest athletes are jockeys and they make more than the top earners in mma it's dumb getting stuck up on a persons size because you can be successful by making a disadvantage an advantage like being small and becoming a jockey
