Feeble minded false dichotomies.
Oyama had a nice Buddha belly that probably deflected body blows nicely.
In college I worked with the Foreign Student Union and we would conduct Round Tables where the foreign students and American students could sit down and share their culture. The foreign students go to work on their English and the Americans got to drool over the hotties. The Japanese girls like me. I was big, muscular, spoke Japanese. However they LOVED my boy Mike who was bigger, fluffy, spoke little Japanese. They referred to him as Pachinko-chan and were all over him.
"Gladiators, it seems, were fat. Consuming a lot of simple carbohydrates, such as barley, and legumes, like beans, was designed for survival in the arena. Packing in the carbs also packed on the pounds. "Gladiators needed subcutaneous fat," Grossschmidt explains. "A fat cushion protects you from cut wounds and shields nerves and blood vessels in a fight." Not only would a lean gladiator have been dead meat, he would have made for a bad show. Surface wounds "look more spectacular," says Grossschmidt. "If I get wounded but just in the fatty layer, I can fight on," he adds. "It doesn't hurt much, and it looks great for the spectators."
