special effects. Like Avatar only cheaper.
I seem to recall a few people mentioning him hustling, having good cardio, etc. The only negative to his training as I recall was that he didn't listen to his coaches and wasn't much of a team player.
It reminds me of the olds days of MMA when the announcers would exaggerate a fighter's credentials. In the first Extreme Fighting show most of the fighters were first-timers, but each one of them were credited with at least 10 MMA fights by the announcers.
Yeah that comes straight out of fantasyland. I know people fudge their height/weight a bit, but that is ridiculous. It's like when I played high school basketball. While filling out the roster information one of the coaches asked me how tall I was. I, truthfully, said " a little over six foot"....and he replied "Six three....got it". Apparently my old coach is now working for the UFC. Good for him.
The heavyweight class is traditionally supposed to be wide, although there actually is a Superheavyweight (Over 265 lbs) class in the unified rules. The UFC has only had one official SHW fight, which was Josh Barnett vs. Gan McGee back in UFC 28, just when the unified rules were first made.

I like the gaps. Hell I would love to see GSP fight one of the big heavyweights. There should be an open-weight bout. That would be fun!!!!!!
I would pay 100 dollars to see it.
When the UFC first started there were no weight classes. There are lots of MMA fights recorded where there is a huge disparity of weight.
