    Back when Anthony Smith first started making a run in 2018 I saw the guy and thought "Wow he must be a dodo" just based on what he looks like. Guy could play a Neanderthal in a movie if he wanted to.

    Little did I know, but he's a well spoken intelligent guy.

    SO who are the other fighters that look the part of a MMA fighter but still speak like a gentleman?

    I dunno about well spoken but Shane Carwin was a mechanical engineer so probably not a dodo. Whereas he looked like your run of the mill meathead.

    Basically the opposite, probably deserves a different thread, but Joe Lauzon looks like a quiet nerd that should be fixing computers in his dimly lit basement, but can kick the shit out of 99.99% of the population.

    Cutelaba is actually an accomplished aerospace engineer and patent attorney.

    Ngannou was actually a well and soft spoken guy. Got to watch him on Rogan's podcast and he's like a gentle giant

    CM Punk looks like a world beating bad ass, but is actually a savvy businessman that knows how to make money.

    Vitali Klischko looks like the real life version of Ivan Drago, a man that was made to punch faces for a living. Became a prominent political figure in Ukraine.
