    Can't believe no ones has mentioned the chick doing half-crunches with no range of movement.

    I really like his accuracy. Nothing wild, just excellent use of energy conservation.

    gets fun in the second round, if you like watching people get dropped by bodyshots.

    Man, this thread has been going for a while.
    Ironically, I had an opportunity to spar a 90+kg "one of those Europeans" also. Lasted 2 rounds and then stopped because he punched through my headgear and I started swelling (! I never swell), shortly followed by a kick that plowed through my guard and into my neck. This is him going "light"

    European san-da vice champ, 25+ AM matches and 1 paid fight. Guess what his name was?

    On this topic, probably an old question asked before but i would say relevant to this thread.

    We talked about advantages of sparring with a bigger more skilled opponent, but what are the disadvantages of sparring with a bigger more skilled opponent vs sparring with a smaller more skilled opponent?

    One obvious answer would be different movement/rythem. Small guys TEND TO move around more. Big guys use more reach or start pressuring, though i find a big man with good footwork truly sucks to fight.

    What else? Anything else that would make you NOT want to spar with a bigger dude?

    if you don't spar smaller people, you can forget about footwork relating to shorter people and forget how to fight at different ranges. I think rhythm and timing might be the biggest things though, like you said.
