    Since there have been a lot of threads lately about pro fighters vs much bigger untrained people and the general opinion seems to be that the pros could overcome a fairly large difference in size, how much of a size advantage do you think it WOULD take before an aggressive untrained person might have even or better odds against a lower level pro? Not the best of the best but like could Tim Elliot easily take out a 6'6 300 lb 'average joe'? Would Alex Chambers overcome a 5'10 250 lb BBW out for blood? Etc.

    Roger Huerta who has fought at 155 and 170 pounds knocked the absolute dogshit out of a 260+ pound football player in like 5 seconds.

    Huge weight advantage or not, if you don't know how to fight you're gonna get curbstomped by someone who does more often than not

    Depend on the level of training.

    +

    If the bigger guy have been in a lot of fight in his life.


    But let's be real, any male mma fighter in the UFC would wrecked any 6'0+250lbs+ average joe.

    The size of your Combat sports accomplishments list (training included) is by far the biggest size advantage you can possibly get.

    Well I said 'aggressive' in the OP so I was thinking a 'hoodie'/'white trash' type who is used to getting into scrapes and not afraid to throw down.

    Haven't seen the video in a while but didn't roger kind of come up on the guy from behind? Not saying the result would have been different as Roger annihilates him regardless, just can't remember off the top of my head. Great example though @KONE

    Roger Huerta was on steroids and cheapshotted some big football player who was drunk off his mind.

    It was rather pathetic actually.

    Have you ever seen videos of big dudes with no skill fighting each other. They look ridiculous. Well trained fighters can easily dodge every punch and land at will.

    it would go on individual fight,if the fighter was still at the level smaller local/state style promotions,i'd side with the bar brawler/street fighting,trash with a size advantage,more often than not.
