    I'm guessing the best hunters, guys who could make the tools, etc, stayed the mist poon. The big brute types probably did the skilled/smart ones dirty work, and got their sloppy seconds as reward.

    Thompson is barely the size of an average sherdogger and he thinks he can intimidate Alex ha

    Living into your 60's and beyond as an active man who's a well respected former pro athlete and maybe having a bit of CTE is significantly more alpha than dying at the age of 45 due to complications of chronic drug abuse in the name of "bodybuilding".

    Discuss.

    You're all wrong. An alpha will master the deadly art of Aikido. No CTE. No damage from roids. Just mastering moves that will kill

    Pudz career was actually excellent

    First fight beats ex pro boxer with leg kicks

    2nd was also win

    3rd is against sylvia whos literally ex ufc champ so no shame losing with 2 years of part time training

    Then some randon show fights

    Then serious comps where some Losses but some wins as well

    (He even later kod a gracie)

    Agree, obviously, but you literally posted one of about 3 possible examples of someone who has as much (or more) power as Putin.

    They are more alpha than all the small weight classes

    BUT I would favor any MW, LHW and HW over them

    Every MW is 200lbs or near 200lbs of muscle usually

    Every LHW is 205lbs to 235lbs

    The HWs are 240lbs to 290lbs

    Those strongmen are 6"3 to 6"8 and weigh 330lbs to 440lbs. Hafthor peak was 440lbs so was Shaw. A Ngannou is 6"4 and 270lbs but the Strongman carry a lot lot more fat on them like 100lbs more

    What? The biggest weight class are the Super Heavyweights (no limit). Under that will depend on the federation. 308, 275, 264, 242, 231 are some examples of bigger weight classes then you mentioned.

    I meant the biggest as in the largest amount of competitors. In nearly every meet that I’ve competed in or coached the 198 and 220 weight classes typically account for a large amount of the competitors. I’ve never competed in a fed that had a 264 or 231 weight class.

    But there usually aren’t a large amount of super heavies which kind of dispels the “powerlifters are all fatasses” bullshit. The only people who make assumptions like that are people that know nothing about the sport.

    In the thread: Lots of skinny weak wannabe MMA fighters who are jealous of big strong alpha Powerlifters.
