    Imagine a world where the short chubby guy could beat the hell out of the giant muscular guy and no one would be surprised. It just goes to show you just how good Cormier is. I mean just look at these 2 side-by-side.... 5'-11" 220lbs v.s. 6'-4" 255lbs lol. Cormier looks like he's carrying around at least 20%+ body fat to Ngannou's 8%. And I'm making this comparison based on both being professional fighters at the top of their game. Size and muscle really don't much matter in a fight, unless you the Brockness monster.

    you say size and muscle don't matter much, but what if Ngannou flatlines DC? then it would matter.

    I think you’re underestimating just how large Cormier really is. If he fights Ngannou he’ll enter the cage well above 220 lbs.

    Didn't DC weigh 250 for his last HW fight?

    Yeah I don't think DC is that small.

    Very few look impressive compared to that physical specimen Ngannou.

    How is this bizzaro world? As long as cage fighting has been a thing, chubby guys have been more than holding their own with jacked dudes

    Fat matters if it's costing you testosterone. I've noticed fighters with low T are easier to KO. DC is just a specimen:

    Agreed, that's why I was specific. Fat that's costing testosterone. Roy has a beard and neither of those men have titties so I'm going to assume they have normal/healthy levels of testosterone.

    MMA isn't bodybuilding.
    Have people only just realised this?
