Rumble at HW, still trying to wrap my mind around that... WW, MW, LHW, to HW.

I believe BJ Penn is the only other man to span 4 weight classes, right?


joe riggs the other way

 

I know Joe said he hit 300lbs at one point, but did he compete at HW?


I'm pretty sure Riggs has actually fought in 5 divisions.  Super Heavy, Heavy, LHW, Middle and Welter.

Rumble and JBJ were on Inside MMA together a year or two ago and Rumble looked way bigger than him.  There was a thread about it and it had some pretty funny romo's in it iirc.

I wonder if Rumble can still make LHW. Haha. What kind odds can I get on Rumble missing weight? If they are good enough I'd drop a 20 on it. Kidding. Shit is surreal though.

I know his first few fights are listed at Heavy, but for some reason I remember him weighing over the 265 limit for at least one or 2 of them.

JerodR - It will be interesting if anything to see Rumble at his regular weight with zero weight cutting. He could be a beast when not losing any energy from weight cuts.

I saw Rumble at the Ontario aiport a couple years ago.  He looked "solid" but kinda puffy.  I asked what he weighed and he said "210 - 215".  I can't imagine him trying to come into a fight at 220 - 230.

Arlovski is going to plunger rape him btw.

I believe Joe Riggs used to be a HW who eventually dropped down to WW.

Would it be funny if Rumble didn't make the 265 limit?

I don't think he'll have to cut much to hit 265, 5-10lbs, max?

Rumble actually had impressive speed at WW considering how huge he was, this should be interesting.

Rumble will attempt to bulk up to like 300 pounds then miss weight.

Why is rumble fighting at HW? He doesn't have the frame for it really. Why did he give up on MW that was a reasonable weight to fight at for him if he managed to keep in shape between fights. He would have great power at 185 and still have a decent size and strength advantage over most guys.
