    The above is true.

    Though I think the title of this thread sucks ass.




    The best potential heavyweight fighters are making more money for a lot less long-term risk doing something else.

    I noticed someone in the beginning opposed the notion that the percentage of athletic heavyweight sized individuals was only .5%... I may be wrong but if you combined the total of just the US professional athletes that fit into this weight division probably only comprise .5% or less of the US. Not even taking into consideration the world.

    I think this thread boils down to entertainment and not skill of the fighter.

    You are telling me for every professional sport in the United States and every athlete that falls into the Heavyweight category is only .5%?

    That is only roughly 1.5 million people. I think it is larger than that, especially when you start including other countires.

    Also to Knightmare, why the hell are you so concerned if I get banned? You are acting like a little bitch, and it is hard to believe how hard you talk on here, yet your actions make you out to be a coward.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    But, but, but I'm 209 lbs, I'm fast!

    That is so not fair.

    Carbon,

    This is one of the few times I'm not potentially trolling you and this is a serious question. Have you spent a LOT of time around elite level athletes, especially outside of fighting arts at all? I'm not talking about getting an autograph from an NFL linebacker or playing a pickup game with an NBA player.

    Are you asking me if I have ever competed in Elite level sports? Then the answer is no. Now I'll prset the same question to you.

    On a serious level how much have you competed with elite athletes?

    I have spent time with extremely talented people in fighting arts, but no I have never practiced, played, or competed with any NFL, NBA, NCAA, NHL, or any other major sport out there that doesn't including fighting. Sorry.

    What exactly were you getting at?
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    Carbon I think he may have been trying to make a point in that there aren't that many people of that size or calibur.

    I could be wrong of course.
