I love lifting and strength training as much as anyone, but I think there is this delusion about strength. Lots of people with impressive numbers have this delusion that they are "stronger" then someone because they have a bigger total. I guess this is true in a powerlifting/weightlifting/strongman/etc setting, but to say you are stronger then say GSP because you have a higher 1RM deadlift would be laughable. This also completely ignores variables like like body proportions, steroids, genetics. Yeah I guess you are stronger then him at a specific movement, but it doesn't mean anything beyond that. There are guys like Amir Khan who probably struggles to DL x BW, but that doesn't mean he can't outbox most fighters. Tyson Fury deadlifted 550 at like 270 lbs, which isn't bad, but its not elite by any means. Just because Cailer Woolam can outlift him by almost 400 pounds on the deadlift at a lower bodyweight doesn't mean he would stand a chance against Fury in a fight. I mean if you take two wrestlers in same weight class and one can deadlift 100lbs, and the other 400lbs, then yeah its going to a huge difference in strength. It matters, but its not always a deciding factor. I bet Robert Whittaker could lift heavier then Israel, but he still lost. Yoel can probably outlift Rob, but he lost to him twice( I know second fight was controversial).
