    I have to agree with Neckhammer on this one too. Look at Clay Guida. His conditioning is insane but I don't even think he's had a title fight. He's just not accurate enough.

    And what about GSP's next fight with Hendricks? Hendricks hits like a brick. He actually reminds me of Tyson with some of his looping rights but as a boxer GSP has really come along way.

    Personally I think that the better boxer in any match will start winning fights because that seems to be the weak point of all the fighters.

    Benson looked a little sheepish that he got caught in that arm bar too. He stepped the wrong way. Did anyone notice that?

    I saw that, should be cool although i think Mirko is over the hill. My answer was for the OP's question though. Fedor > all.

    Here's the issue I have with the argument that a small guy with superior technique (like let's say GSP or Penn) could take on a legitimately skilled and well-rounded heavyweight like Bones Jones (at 240 or so), Velasquez, or Fedor. I understand that the smaller guy can use some grappling to his advantage, but that's clearly all that he can do. This is a substantial strategical disadvantage, and a quality heavyweight with well-rounded should be able to exploit it and beat the littler guy like a rag doll. I also know from competitive wrestling experience (albeit not BJJ, but still) that just 10 or 20 pounds is a HUGE advantage in grappling.

    In sport, sure. I'm thinking of applications to real life though.

    Nah, if both fighters are skilled, the bigger person will win nine times out of ten.

    Yeah I mean thats why there are weigh classes....

    I'm so confused about this thread. Thought it was based on the, albeit unrealistic, hypothetical that size was not an issue... i.e. everyone was the same weight class. So a best "pound for pound" fighter so to speak.

    Heck, wrestling weight classes go up by 5-10lb divisions. When you are sub 10% bf your talking straight 5-10lbs of muscle difference. That shit adds up, and it begins to take an exponential amount of greater skill, speed, agility, conditioning and other nontangebales to make up for even that 5-10lbs of muscle gap.
