    That is exactly what I was getting at. Isn't it strange that the most dominant heavyweight is only 6' and has fat on him?

    Anyone think the fat actually contributes to his stamina and endurance, allowing him a reserve that other fighters don't really have?
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    Well seeing how fast he recovered from being suplexed on his neck by Randleman, i'd say the fat assists his strength and helps minimize damage..
    But thats just me.

    No, that's nonsense. Fat can't be metabolised at anything remotely approaching the speed that would require.

    What certainly does act as an advantage is more weight to hold people down with, though the disadvantage of the effect on your endurance may or may not outweigh it.

    I guess it's a little ironic, perhaps funny, but I dunno 'bout "strange."

    Here's what I DO think is strange:



    COINCIDENCE?

    You cut your weight to fight in the lowest weight class possible, and a six pack is a result of this weight loss, it has nothing to do with appearances.

    I remain unconvinced that Fedor can be knocked out by anything smaller than a Mack Truck, however.
    Fujita had him rocked. It was a lucky punch, but someone like Hunt or Arlovski could knock him out. Not likely, but possible.

    Yeah, it's all the fat in his neck that allowed him to survive that. Not luck and natural toughness.

    Now I want to see Fedor survive a powerbomb from Rampage.
    Lets see him put that in his pip and smoke it.

    Watch, it's going to be some unknown guy from some small town somewhere in the East Coast of America. Won some toughman competition or something, completely humble, barely weighing enough to make it. He gets a good shot in and everyone shits their pants. The Pride community accuses Fedor of throwing the fight, the poor dude gets capped by some Russian gang who got screwed in the betting. There's an investigation and therein some concerned mothers (probably from the Bluffs of Beverly Hills) rallies against this because no way in hell is little Jimmy going to end up like his hero Fedor while training at their Beverly Hills MA training center that she pays a good $400 a month for. Pride goes down for a while and a month later so does UFC and K-1. Everyone freaks out, MMA dies out and small-time promoters pick up the slack from UFC, Pride and K-1 dudes. A new MMA fad begins and thus the circle comes complete and begins anew.
