    yeah but if they know ehs gonna try and ko them tis gonna make them much mor einclined to grapple

    but yes hw is horrible the technique used at hw isnt even close legit guys at local amateur shows at 170 have the technique of ufc hws and womens mma as well thats why u can take a guy and get him to ufc within just 2 years of training

    Too short to compete at HW but if he cut down to MW successfully then he could do some damage with his power

    Dependin´ on Big Daddy´s reliability, he claims in this book 'The Gatekeeper' [p.116], that Igor was 5´9 220 lbs in their 2nd fight

    If Derick Lewis is a top HW theres no evidence to suggest Igor couldnt do the same

    I think he would be a lhw today. He looked to be in great shape as a lhw,but was already at the tail end of his career when he moved down and too many hand injuries,prob had 100 fights by then.

    He would lose to wrestlers. Coleman systematically took him down, and while not everyone is Coleman, the talent pool has gotten thick enough where a wrestling deficit of Igor's degree would simply not be sustainable.

    When he cut to middleweight and destroyed Takahashi, Igor was scary fast.

    He lost to normal size Allistair in the tourney.

    Good point, but he was very small. Black breast is huge thoe. I know mark kerr was a monster, but mark kerr had some huge mental problems

    Prime Igor or current Igor

    Prime Igor would destroy most but the top 5. And could even beat most of them.

    What rule set? Does he get to karate chop people to the back of the head then soccer kick them into oblivion? NHB Igor was the best Igor.
