    And he still lost. Strength is no substitute for good technique and experience when it comes to fighting. Seen it happen time and time again.

    god bless fedor. if randleman were in his prime, he mightve destroyed fedors neck with that. however, fedor is a cyborg and cannot be defeated.

    Size/Strength < Skill

    Randelman is big and strong, but he is also horrible, he is always falling into subs.

    Is this so much worse than a superbri007 thread or a thread made to insult superbri007?

    He's never been good, just lucky, he trains with Hammer House man, it doesn't get much worse than that.

    that randleman is a strong mofucka, based on his ability to fuckin suplex you so hard that his feet leave the ground before your head hits the mat

    I thought Crocop had a shot of taking out Fedor if anyone, but he got spanked pretty good too.

    I've been watching a lot of Fedor highlight reels/fights lately, he's a fucking machine.

    he relies on his kick too much. its like his trump card.
    either way it wont work on fedor. if it didnt on hunt, it wont on him. put up a good fight tho.

    I think the bigger you get the harder it is to muscle people around. I wrestled at 119 in HS, with a bench that was over 200. I had no legs (still don't really, but I'm working on it). I was a mediocre wrestler at best, but had a winning record even at my first camp, which was my first set of matches agaisnt more experienced guys because I was strong as hell compared to the guys I was wrestling.

    Once you get more and more experience, the strength becomes less of a factor, but I'll go ahead and say that it can be very helpful. If you're strong enough to grab someones hand and try to break it, they're a lot more worried about you breaking their hand than trying to hit a switch on you. I wrestled maybe 5 guys ever who I felt like I was totally outclassed and was weaker than them, and it's a terrible feeling.

    true. but when the skill in both fighters is fairly even, strength can play a huge factor.
