    He's fantastically skilled and disciplined but a big reason why he's been so successful at @ WW is because he's so much larger than his opponents: bigger bones, longer reach.

    He can easily fight @ MW but he seems to have no problems making weight so he'll continue to feast on smaller guys.

    I always thought that Woodley was the biggest WW.

    Nope


    WB:

    "I walk around at a lighter weight (than most Welterweights). I’m really not a big 170 like guys like Hendricks who walk around over 200 pounds. I tried that before I fought Matt Brown and the weight cut was too hard and it drained me during the fight. I walk around lighter because of that and each time I cut weight it gets easier and easier. I walk around between 185 and 190 "

    Kind of proves that he's a big WW. He actually reached 200. At 185-190 he barely has any muscle mass. He has so much room on his frame to add mass unlike let's say GSP who basically capped his fram with muscles and cannot stay over 190 during a training camp no matter how much effort he does adding mass.

    Yes, he dwarfed Ronny Macdonald in their last fight. Macdonald was thought of as a pretty large welterweight himself and he looked like he could get eclipsed.

    I have been looking and I can't find the source again, but I have read that Woodley is at 190 or so on fight night.

    Rory is a huge WW also and he should be in the conversation.

    He said that he did it once and it did not go well so now he walks around much lighter.

    Lim and Thatch are by far the biggest UFC WWs right now

    Rumble fought at 170. If you want someone who actually made weight then Hector Lombard. Hyun Gyu Lim is also a big fucker.

    Wtf? Am I reading this correctly that you thought Robbie looked bigger than Woodley? Woodley was the much bigger man, looked like two different weight classes.
