This post is utterly ridiculous considering people are matched up in weight classes.
I meant in terms of fighting in general. All the best and most legitimate MMA fighters average at 6,0 to 6,2 max. It's the perfect height range because you're tall enough to use leverage and have sufficient height and reach range, as well as pack on desirable muscle mass. Yet you are short enough that you won't be lanky, have too high a centre of gravity and weak joints and good blood flow to the body. Your oxygen intake will be strong too which will make you a natural cardio machine.

Why do you think that MW and LHW feature the most skilled, explosive, strongest and durable fighters?

They don't.

But it's still Russia. Business competition over there is not the same as in the US. It's even more about knowing the right people. Different countries have different rules for doing business.

Could be but Dana is loaded and has a huge base of fighters and jets and money at his disposal, that's gotta count for something. Plus he nearly got fedor to fight brock before fedor's dad died and fedor retired instead.

I'm not saying it won't happen. It's just a quite different type of business competition he's going to face there. White would have to be way more careful in his negotiations. His often rather offensive way of talking could quite easily jam negotiations up. Not everywhere in the world you can be an offensive negotiator and still have success like in the US as long as the other side also profits from the deal. In other cultures personal relations are much more important. But again, I'm not saying it won't happen. I'd welcome the UFC to enter Russia as I think there is probably quite some interesting talent to find there. I even think in the next 5-10 years, Russia will be the next big MMA country talentwise along with the US and Brazil.
