To quote Mr. Irvin, "there's weight classes for a reason."
Using that logic, shouldn't Fedor have lost to Hong Man?
Shouldn't Cro Cop have been owned by Bob Sapp?
Shouldn't BJ Penn have been crushed...many times?
Also, don't forget, A. Silva is 6"2.
Even then, skill > size any day. Just because he can't toss Lesnar around like a rag doll doesn't mean he will let Brock get a hold of him. And being heavier doesn't make you less likely to be knocked out.
