Understand that but the other side of the coin is how much size and strength matters in fighting. Some of the guys in MMA who've gone up in weight for a big title fight have struggled because their strikes have less power against bigger guys than they're used to. When Max Holloway went up a class to fight Dustin Poirer for that belt, he landed plenty but they just didn't have the power to affect a bigger guy like Poirer than they would someone in his own class. (I'm not suggesting Poirer wasn't fantastic in that fight however).That's correct. Ironically, wrestling fans who dog the McMahons for obsessing over size and muscles believe Conor would succumb to pro wrestlers just because they're bigger. I believe this irony is lost on them.
Don't get me wrong though, in no way am I comparing real fighters with legit skills to 'sports entertainers' lol.
