Well... they're 1-2 tonight.
They are but I had the exact same thought as OP... some of these guys are just young or inexperienced. The size difference that body type creates is such a massive advantage.
It's an advantage, but what fights keep showing is that skills are more important.
Greg Hardy is also big, tall, black and athletic. He sucks because his skills are weak.
Francis vs Stipe, Kongo vs Mir, Hunt, and Roy Nelson, Corey Hill vs everybody.
Tall and black only gets you so far.
I totally agree. What I mean is it’s a great place to start... you obviously need to be good too and get the experiences like he had tonight. But even though Turner lost, which one of those fighters tonight in that match do you think has the higher upside? I’d say Turner without a doubt.
