    Hunt vs Lesnar was probably the last time it happened in the UFC. Bigfoot and Minakov were both over 265 for their fight last week.

    If they can create a UFC WMMA featherweight title this should be for the first UFC SHW title...don't limit the big big men dammit!

    Mir?

    Josh Barnett?

    Shane Carwin?

    Assuming they both weigh around 280 and their averaged body fat is at around 30%, there will be about 170 pounds of pure lard in octagon tomorrow.

    Pretty scary if you think about it.

    I think for lewis, it's normal for him to cut a bit weight, no?

    but for hunt, his ideal weight is lower than 265, I believe

    Shouldn't happen. HW should be 205+. If you weigh 206 pounds and are great you can beat any HW. There's diminishing returns on weight after a while. The weight cap truly did hurt Bigfoot in the UFC and I don't like that. Lewis and Hunt are both just pretty fat so it doesn't hurt them as much but Bigfoot is over a 265 pound man. Same with Lesnar.



    If I recall correctly Dan Henderson at 206 KO'ed the guy everyone says is the HW GOAT in the first round.

    Yeah a lot of HWs cut weight, from your list only Barnett and Prime Mir don't cut weight

    Both would gas completely if they fought a lighter pressure fighter like Cain (assuming he actually gets to the octagon lol).

    For me, the "biggest" fight was:
    Overeem (roids) vs Lesnar (roids).

    that his optimal weight is in the 24x or 25x. I remember in a thread people agreeing that his best shape was against kongo, and that he was in his 24x or 25x
