actually, he’s an accomplished kick boxer, black belt in karate, purple belt in Ju Jitsu, and his conditioning is freaking impeccable. Not to mention, he is a fucking champion and all around great athlete, no matter what he does… I think if he commits to it, he’s gonna upset a lot of people. Not saying he’ll be the best, but I guarantee he’ll shake things up a bit
And what do you mean he’s too stiff? cause he’s big means he isn’t flexible? what, do you still believe in muscle binding? cause that’s nonsense[/quote]
Ok, I didn’t know anything about him being a kick boxer. Did he used to fight professionally, or was he only an amateur? What type of jiu-jitsu? He looks like he’s in great shape, but so does Houston Alexander. I’m just not sure how well he’ll do in a fight situation.
I’ve seen videos of him jogging and running, and his movement isn’t as fluid as a lot of MMA athletes I’ve seen. I know he’s very flexible, and I realize that the term ‘muscle-bound’ as an excuse made by people who don’t stretch regularly.
i don’t know where people get the idea that strongmen aren’t in shape… ever done any strongman events? it takes a lot of endurance, agility, and strength… try flipping an 800 lb tire 9 times and then make your decision on whether or not they’re in shape[/quote]
Strongmen are definitely in shape. I enjoy watching strongman events on television. I realize that they are incredible athletes. However, I don’t know if his conditioning is going to carry over from events lasting 1 to 2 minutes when he has to fight five minute rounds.
