True but most pro MMA fighters are very muscular. Cause if you train right having a nice physique is a side effect of that training .
But those guys who do nothing but body build all day and neglect cardio and cant run a mile or do a pull up aren't in fighting condition,, far from
it.. Just cause your skinny or muscular doesn't mean your in shape.
Seeing those guys in my gym who bench 500 but cant do a single pull up and huff after walking stairs is amusing.
All that muscle/strength means nothing if you have a small gas tank.
You have to be in all around shape to go 3min or 5 min rounds. If your just lifting weights and not doing any cross training, HIIT, cardio you'll be
pooped in less than a minute.
One time i was 235 lbs benching 390 for a max , did little to no cardio, started some MMA training and found out i wasn't in shape lol
Im 195 lbs now and my max is only 320, but i can run 8 miles, run a fast 5k, hit the heavy bag 4 minutes etc.
I would kill my old self in a confrontation. lol
Other than training grappling and sparring, conditioning is the second biggest factor in a fight bar non imo
BTW Bully got what he needed.
