Strenght is the most important factor in a fight.
>>168138True to some degree, yet I would bet my money on Fedor against any bodybuilder
Let me ammend that, power is the most importantStrength without velocity isn't all that useful
if you fight against someone with a similar skill level to you? yes, you'll always have the advantage by being strongerif you fight against someone more skilled and experienced than you? no, strength can't save you if your untrained ass can get easily outgrappled and outstriked, plus you wouldn't know how to use that strength to your advantage.
>>168173I don't believe Zhang Weili would beat Brian Shaw, even though he's not a martial artist
People who say strength almost always mean fat free mass. They can't differentiate any of those ideas because they're fat and weak and looking for a proxy to feel good about.
>>168138A much bigger classmate of mine badly bullied me all throughout middle and highschool. He is about 6'1. He used to do professional Karate as teen and was muscular. I was the shortest in class. I am 5'3 and 120lbs. He used to give me hell. We are 22 now. He has gotten fat.Can I possibly have my revenge by beating him up good for once? I am definetely going to do Judo first and some striking later solely for self-defence snd confidence but can this ever make me able to give this garbage human what he deserves?
>>168202Do a perma bulk once you aint featherweight you can think about beating up someone
>>168206There has never been any fighter at that heigh in the UFC above bantamweight
>>168138Mass x Acceleration = Destructive Force.
>>168202Lmao you can't even fight in Sumo ring and you think of getting revenge on a 6'1 gigachad that bullied you?Dwarfed your hopes huh?
>>168271Mass and Roider strenght do the trick albeit
>>168138No, fighting skills are the most important factor in a fight, I beat the shit out of bodybuilding fags always in the gym ... they don't know how to throw punches while fully telegraphing every move fighting skills is everything, there are tons and tons and tons of vids of small guys beating the shit out of bigger dudes just watch this and tell me that a true fighter with 60kgs can't beat themhttps://youtu.be/2tMdrBAzY04
>>168138strength+speed=Powerproblem is those bulky types lack speed, they can be outmanuvered and tire easy because their body needs alot of energy.off-course it helps to be big and strong, you would win against an average thug, but I have seen big body building people challenge smaller pro boxers and have their asses handed to them in few seconds.
>>168138Guy on the left would win through lure skillBrains over brawn any day.
>>168275Not at 5'3" when the other guy is more athletic than you and has a ton of striking experience, you will be decimated and humiliated worse than by being rejected by a female crush.
>>168315Height difference + years spend crafting their art difference between some mook that got bullied at school.
>>168202The best revenge is not letting somebody live in your head for years afterwards.
>>168163Fedor benched 180 kg in the army without proper food and training
>>169228> In the army.> Growing young lad with bunch of testosterone.> In a competitive environment where personal achievement matter.Basically like free roiding without actual roids.He wouldn't be able to do that if he started lifting weights as an older man unless he had his nutrition and recovery planned out.
>>168195>Brian ShawThe fact that you know his name is part of why he wouldn't lose, he's an extraordinary individual: So much so, that you know him by name, despite never having met him. He's still an extraordinary outlier case in terms of strength and athleticismIf it's instead>Zhang Weiliagainst someone more typically "strong", perhaps >Slightly overweight but tall and stocky dock-worker who thinks they could fight MMA despite never having done a day of formal training in his lifeI'd be betting on Zhang pretty much regardless of the dock worker's strength and weight, because at some point you're not going to overcome an absence of training.
>>168138>The people we take direction from, the spokespeople of science, they're very often psychically unbalanced taking only one psychic function as the one that matters and holds trustworthiness: conceptual thinking. They're challenged when it comes to the richness of intuition and sense-perception as in being grounded in your senses as opposed to abstraction. We see them as the new wise men while they are people having chunks of their psyche amputated. I call it "The idolatry of nerds".
>>168138Mariusz Pudzianowski was the strongest man in the world when he moved to MMA. He was not a great fighter and he had to cut tons of weight to improve his cardio.
>>168195Reductio ad absurdum>>168202Success is the best revenge. Move on, put him out of your mind. You're still young, get educated, start a career, start a family. Ten years on you'll be surrounded by wealth and loved ones and he'll be a fat has-been. But also, hell yeah do judo.>>173199Very interesting, where is this quote from?
>>173211>improve his cardioWhat if he actually had to cut tons of weight because of 265 lbs limit?
>>173225Iirc, he fought in an organization without weight limit. He had serious card problems in his first few fights.
>>173225Pudz was never close to as heavy as the average strongman is now. His whole thing was being the athletic, ripped competitor who could speed passed his rivals. Everyone gets memed to death about being on tren, but he actually was. On top of cocaine. His cardio never stood a chance as far as it relates to fighting.
>>168138so why a powerlifter wuld lose
>>168138-ish- It's hard to quantify. There's not even a real metric for skill and experience.
>>168202Beat the shit out of him. You'll be glad you did. Don't wimp out, the opportunity is there. Just show him all the pain he deserves.
>>168138weapon choice and number of fighters are more important
