The most JACKED fighters in the UFC
For many uneducated members of the general public, the size of one’s muscles directly translates to fighting ability. For those of us in the know, however, we know that having big muscles really has nothing to do with fighting ability and the big, blown up bodybuilder physique is actually quite terrible for fighting.
Having huge muscles not only slows you down and limits your mobility but more muscle requires more oxygen which means you are quicker to tire if you carry around too much muscle.
However, with all that being said, there are still quite a few elite level fighters in the UFC who could easily pass for bodybuilders and in this YouTube video, we see some of the best such examples.
UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley makes the list and it really is no surprise there. It really is incredible how this guy makes 170 as he is insanely muscular, particularly in his legs which are absolutely massive. Cardio has been an issue for Woodley in the past though which lends credence to the claim that more muscles make you tire quicker.
UFC middleweight contender Yoel Romero also makes the list and he may have the most impressive physique of any UFC fighter ever. What is also amazing about Romero is that he is 40-years-old and still looks like that. No ‘dad bod’ for Romero.
Some other fighters in this video list are heavyweight slugger Francis Ngannou, former welterweight champion and one of the greatest fighters of all time Georges St. Pierre, plus UFC lightweight young gun Sage Northcutt who is absolutely shredded and very muscular especially for a young man.
Though these guys may still be great fighters with huge muscles they are more the exception to the rule and really are not all that big when compared to actual professional bodybuilders.
