He was the max GP champion this year and looked pretty damn impressive, but he still has a long way to go when it comes to going down as one of the all time greats.

Yeah, true. I watched him in the GP (Hoping to see Buakaw in the final) and was blown away. From what I've seen he's one of the best strikers out there IMO, just the way he puts all his combinations together so well.

Ok Semmy is the best of all time, without a doubt, the man owns the WGP.

Yea I don't think that anybody can argue that right now! He is the measure of all things.

Well it can be argued that his height is his best friend. I would like to know how far he'd go if he was 6 inches shorter...

That being said, I know HMC is taller and not nearly as good, but I still feel that Semmy wouldn't be ranked as highly if he didn't have such a tremendous reach advantage. He is a great fighter, but is he as technically skilled as Hoost? Hug? Aerts?

His body natur is built perfectly thats always an advantage! He doesn't even look very ripped at all or well trained but he gets it done every time. I think his skill set is tremendous but I never thought that he would just walk through Badr Hari like he did last year. And now he is the only WGP fighter who managed it to win the GP 4 times, only Hoost achieved that too.

Everyone fights to their strengths.

There are advantages to being shorter. At his heigh, Schilt can't weave effective, so getting into the mix like Hoost, and trying to move like Hoost, would be a terrible idea.

Schilt knows how to use his length effectively, and he knows how to land his punches.

Aerts had fantastic one-shot power, and he used it. This isn't a gift that Semmy has. Aerts had a number of fights throughout his career where he came out and put his opponent away in under two minutes. Schilt does it about once a year (well, he's done it in his last three fights, but it's not a consistent trend throughout his career the way it is for Aerts).

If Semmy was short, he'd be a totally different fighter. Hell, maybe he'd be Mark Hunt. But it's not really important. He's tall, and he's good at being tall.
