Science states that size does matter. You would have to be very, very, very strong to overcome 100% skill. Im talking superhuman strength, so strong your body cannot be compressed, you're a rock. Like the Hulk. Science states it can be done, but no human can be that strong.

Big wins against punks and when you're lucky. Though not against a genuine versatile fighter. Big isn't better. Stronger is good, but skilled is better. And comparing anyone who can't bench 300lbs+ to Lesner is retarded as long as he keeps just falling on people and hammer fisting them. But since he's about to die or whatever... I think I can take him!

When it comes to guys like Mariusz vs guys like Valesquez... I think Mariusz could have only minimal training and still win.


I think if a guy as strong as Mariusz has an iron chin, the only way to beat him would be by point-striking, Machida style, to a decision.


You can only hope that when your opponent is much, much stronger/bigger than you, that you can gas him or outstrike him consistently. Once they're gassed... well, have your way with them!

In actual English: Anyone unable to bench 300+ would be unable to tank Lesner as long as he keeps falling on people and hammer-fisting them. But that in and of itself is skill and strategy, not raw strength. It plays a part but the skills give him the ability to use his strength to its full potential.

An example being that a body-builder on the street would loose, no question, to a decently trained martial artist. Essentially, strength doesn't mean shit without technique.

There, English.
