    Big guys don't have the same trials and tribulations coming up the ranks that small guys do. I walk at 220 and I promise when I was new to bjj and mma I had a lot better time in class than the guy that's new and 160. Those guys come up the ranks getting constantly crushed by bigger fighters while training. They have to get used to surviving.

    I agree with Mir.

    Reason why is guys that size most of there life they don't get pushed around. There almost always the biggest guy in the room that people don't mess with and everyone feeds into that. There confidence is off the chart but at the same time rarely ever tested in life.

    In training size can mean less reliance on technique.

    A heavyweight needs to find partners who challenge them both physically and with great technique. Not always easy to find.

    Not unlike a lefty. He's often the lefty at the gym but doesn't get the advantage of working with the lefty.

    I realize the pros work on this at the higher levels, but a lot of habits and fighting styles are determined during the lower levels of training.

    You people are so illogical that it hurts my brain.

    Using one off examples that are EXCEPTIONS TOTHE RULE to attempt to refute a general statement.

    Also, your inabilities to see correlating variables...

    For example, the people here who claim that cowards are in all sizes, has nothing to do with weight...... Here, let me educate you. As a base statement of fact, would you agree that being TIRED AS FUCK makes us ALL potentially exert less than 100%? Would you say that it's at least POSSIBLE?

    Good. You're more likely to fatigue at higher weights, which means you're more likely to you're to be in a state of "cowardice," which we just agreed was possible, did we not. Which means, a summary statement could be made similar to what Mir said. You do realize he's not excluding himself right?


    You guys need to learn the difference between exceptions to the rule, and generalizations.

    I dunno about that. Getting into a cage with JDS, Stipe, Hunto, Overeem, etc takes a lot more mental fortitude than getting into a cage with Mighty Mouse. Plus a lot of the HWs are known for not tapping, even if they go out or have their arm broken. Other fighters do the same, but since HW is so shallow it seems like a lot more of them refuse to tap than, say, LWs or WWs.

    Kind of an odd statement.
