The difference in strength is not the point. But rather the simulation in Monson's height, the speed of the shoot and getting Silvia's reflex timing down to react in sprawls is what they'll be training.

You also made note of "power shots". If they expect Monson to punch his way in to shoot afterward, they'll have Hughes simulating that as well. Trust and believe.
