    ring size

    just read an interesting article in FIGHT! magazine about the size of the ring and size of fighters, has an affect on knock-out rates. so, for smaller rings, less space to move around brings fighters closer to toe-toe. also noticed the bigger the fighters, (welter-heavy) have higher knockout rates as well.

    my question is, would this data be true if you werent in a ring or cage? for example a street fight? im sure there would be many contributing factors to this; how many opponents, terrain, weather. but im thinking if you did these tests with street confrontations, it would turn out the same.

    thoughts?

    All things being equal, toe-to-toe is toe-to-toe, whether you're in the street or in the ring. The only difference is lava and AIDS infested needles.

    Bigger fighters score more knockouts for 2 obvious reasons that are far more important than cage size: They hit motherfucking harder than small guys. Structural integrity and ability to take damage doesn't increase as much as power does with regard to weight. Bigger guys hit harder and knock motherfuckers out more.
    Secondly, they don't move as much as small guys. Because they have more mass to move. So more power shots land.

    Would it be true on the street? That depends. Which street are we talking about? Because if it's a street in a Red Light District then motherfuckers be getting knocked up no matter what size they are.
