    Well if he has wrestling and jits that is far superior, In many cases size wont matter all that much. In that sense It's technique and leverage. Size does play a factor, but at some point the technique gap is too vast.

    MM would destroy 99% of this thread, pretty easily.

    Only Sherdog morons think that their size would magically save them from an elite male UFC fighter.

    A big size advantage wouldn't save them from being mauled by flyweights with poor records.

    Come on man, this isn’t some fantasy land where size doesn’t matter, there’s a reason there’s weight classes. Dude doesn’t stand a chance against a majority of normal sized human beings, that’s why no one takes him seriously in all time discussions.

    I don't think your average gym goer, man on the street, or a few years training martial arts person, understands how tough it is. I sparred a low level pro from Poland once, and it was only light sparring. I reckoned myself as having good cardio until it came to sparring him and realising my cardio is actually mediocre. I was gassing after a round and a half, and I wasn't relaxed at all. It was LIGHT sparring too. Not medium, not heavy, not ultra competitve, but LIGHT! I then realised after that session how fucking useless I really am when pitted against a low level, domestic professional MMA fighter. If you're talking in the UFC, that's another level, then top 30, another level, top 20, another level. Well, you get my point. Don't overestimate your skills if you're not a pro or even a high level amateur, because you'll get handily dealt with.

    I have 13 years grappling experience, am strong for my size and have done ammy mma. At late 30s and 70 kgs I recently trained with Commonwealth games freestyle wrestlers in their last prep seasions. The so called manlets at 57kg aged 18 and 39 fucking mauled me. Their technique, fitness, strength and speed was too hard to match.

    Unless WMMA counts, there is only CM Punk, my boxing would give me good odds - I think. I'm pretty tall but actually skilled people don't give a fuck about that. Ray Borg with shards in his eye would eat me for breakfast.

    Seeing as I am 6ft2 (or 6ft3 according to some tape measures :S) and I weigh just under 15 stone, I'd end up in the light heavyweight division with those hard hitting monsters.

    I think I could probably sneak out a win against Corey Anderson....maybe....possibly.
    I'd probably beat Francimar Barroso if all he wanted to do was his 'here we go round the mulberry bush' routine.

    If it's in Poland, most likely the guy was on something.
    I think they hand them out like candy over there.
