I'm 6'1 230 and some little 5'6 155 pound guy would make me their biatch in a fight
You could train
no matter how much i train, ill never be in it.
i would fight at 145. walk around at 155-160.
lawl you could pull a jonathan weezor and bull rush the shit out of then and stomp em like they took your hamburger
The only thing that bothers me when I watch the UFC are not the fans, not even Joe Rogan, but the fact that I'm only getting 4-5 fights when if Pride FC was doing a show, they would have 8-9 great fights.
yeah, knowing i would fight at 135 is just sad. Walk at 155. Easily can get down to 145 if i am on my normal cardio routine.
god you guy's are fucking tiny
i dunno, i dont think im that small. right now 5'10" 155 - 160. long term goal is to stay at this weight and get cut, but usually when im cut i am around 145 - 150. just takign my time to fidn the balance. of course i'd liek to look liek wandy, but i work full tiem and go to school. gots to have priorities.
You're thin man... really thin.
I walk about 138-140 with visible abs and could get to 125 for a fight if I had to, but I'm only 5'3". I couldn't imagine being that much taller and not carrying any more weight.
man you guys are skinny, just eat lots and hit the weights. i used to be a skinny fuck when i wrestled, then i took some time off to get bigger. it was def. worth the time off to put on some size.
i dont think so. i'd guess i'm pretty average. I mean, at the gym i know i am one of the lightest guys, but i know i cant dedicate the time to lift enough to get big and stay big, so i'd rather just stay fit and spend that time training.
I hate watching the UFC because the production is so fucking lame.
I hate the "he said/she said" fight promos, the lame entrances, and the constant hype for the main event. YES I KNOW CHUCK IS FIGHTING JARDINE. I BOUGHT THE EVENT.
the rules would be ok if they'd allow knees to the head on the ground. stomps and kicks are nice, but they don't really change the game much
I like the cage. I hate watching Pride fights where the ref has to break up the fighters, move them to the center of the ring, put them back in position, and get them to resume the fight.
How old are you?
just turned 27.
well into my career, and moving fast, so I am spending at least 10 - 11 hours a day at work.
had to drop out of grad school because of it.
but am going to school on weekends for language immersion.
havent been to the gym in well over a month. thats why im 160 instead of my typical 148 when i am training a ton./
I didn't put on any weight until after I turned 30. When I met my wife I was 115 lbs dripping wet. On my 30th birthday I was 123.
I did some lifting between then and now, but nothing serious or for building mass. I just started eating better and my metabolism slowed down a bit.
i have been int he process of moving too, so its been eating out every night for a month.
side note: I used to be the fat kid when I was growing up, so to me keeping my cardio and weight in check is a priority before getting brolly.
I was always little and was diagnosed with a pituitary issue at 14. I took growth hormone until my junior year of high school, and graduated at 108 lbs.
I left off the "regularly would eat more than my 300 lb. friend from high school".
i think it would work best to stick around where your frame wants to be naturally. get strong at that level, and cut the weight for competition. that way youre the naturally bigger man for the match.
gsp and rampage (and alot of other top fighters) pretty much eat whatever they want to stay at their natural weight and then cut in preparation for their fights.
ace is fighting at a weight un-natural for him so his diet is obviously more strict so he has to pay closer attention on what goes into his body.
if i was to step up in weight, i would have to always eat alot more to stretch my stomach (slowing me down), and i would put myself in competitions where id be up against a much more naturally bigger individual.
bulking up to go up in weightclass in combat sports doesnt make much sense to me.
Depends on the fighter. Its been done plenty in boxing with much success. MMA needs more weight classes or same day weigh ins. Aswell as a 145lb (if not lower)class if they want the Mexican fan base they are going after.
Featherweight at 145, cap the heavies at 225, and add a super heavyweight for 226+.
