    He is a very big man but he also has very fast hands and he is also quite powerful for a big man. His footwork is also very impressive.

    Anybody else notice this?

    Honestly I would kind of say the opposite, you compare Stipe to other HW's who's used boxing heavily(Fedor, JDS, Sergei, Arlovski, Aleks, etc) and I think what stands out is that he's NOT as quick as they were/are, he's not slow but he moves more like you'd expect a man his size to.

    Generally I think Stipe has the benefit of being a very solid all around fighters(well sub defence somewhat untested but theres much less threat there anyway these days at HW) who is able to exploit weaknesses of opponents well in an era were everyone he faces has a pretty clear flaw.

    He has no footwork and his boxing is really good but he's not the fastest.

    So what you are trying to say; Stipe is pretty good fighter.

    Yeah, we noticed. He also is the HW champion, let that sink in.

    Stipe moves well. Great balance, fast feet and great fast twitch explosiveness.

    Stipe is still underrated.
