    I remember Frankie could bench teh 315 and he's like 155 pounds so that's pretty impressive

    but which MMA fighter has the highest static strength

    Cyborg can barely get 350 off the ground deadlift
    I doubt she has a good bench

    Source on the Frankie Edgar bench? I'm pretty sure you just made that up

    I think most of them bench a lot less than you'd imagine. Even Hector Lombard, who was possibly one of the most physically strong fighters ever, posted a 315 1 rep max bench on his instagram.

    Probably Pudzianowski or someone like that.

    I heard The Schaub was a beast in his younger days too.

    Hard to say without proof. They don't really train for 1 rep maxes (nor should they)

    I compete at 132 and 148. I routinely pull 500 + deadlifts in training...
    Joanna would beat the ever living fuck out of me. Different sports

    I mean, I've been browsing Sherdog at least as long as the OP has and I've literally never heard of this Frankie Edgar 315 bench, nor has google, youtube, etc.

    This is the sort of thing that I would have seen a long time ago if it were true.

    I remember back in the day when they said Tank Abbott could bench like 600 or something crazy like that. I believe it's on Youtube.
