Not really. I always realize he is going against a 6 foot nothing guy. And expect him to big much bigger. But each time he surprises me and looks bigger than I remember.

I think Bones' upper body is much bigger than Gustaf's. He dwarfed Shogun much more than Gustaf did as far as I remember.

It will be cool seeing him in there with someone close to his size for sure. I still think people will be surprised how much bigger he is though. Maybe I'm wrong and underestimating Gustaf's size. I always thought he looked like a T-Rex though. Long legs. Tall. But reach and shoulders rather small. Makes the weigh ins interesting. Even though we won't be able to tell the how they stack up mass wise until fight night.
