HUGE bodybuilder vs kickboxer in MMA bout – does not last long
In this video, we see what happens when a massive bodybuilder competes in MMA versus a kickboxer and it doesn’t last very long at all so don’t blink.
Bodybuilding, as a discipline, often gets lumped into the fighting arts and many people mistakingly believe that a bodybuilder actually possesses fighting ability due to their massive physiques.
This couldn’t be further from the truth, however, and while size and strength do somewhat play a factor in fighting, technique and experience are exponentially way more important.
Also, that big, blown up bodybuilder physique, like we see possessed by the gentleman in this video, is not the kind of build you want to have in combat sports. Not only is your mobility severely limited, but you are also going to be quick to tire as more muscles require more oxygen.
Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) for the bodybuilder in this video, this fight doesn’t last long enough for that to become an issue, however.
As soon as the fight begins, the bodybuilder desperately shoots in for a takedown which perhaps hints a wrestling background of some sort but most likely not a very high level.
The bodybuilder gets the kickboxer down, albeit very briefly, but the kickboxer is able to get back on his feet. The bodybuilder still holds onto his leg, however, which leaves his head open for some strikes.
This position here is reminiscent of the second fight between MMA legend, Mark Coleman, and perhaps the greatest heavyweight of all-time, Fedor Emelianenko. Coleman desperately shot in for the takedown and wouldn’t let go when he didn’t get it and ate a lot of these type of hammer-fist type shots because of it which definitely added up.
The bodybuilder eats a couple of these shots then fails to intelligently defend himself and simply turtles up before taking a big soccer kick which promptly ends this contest.
