I don't think subcutaneous fat adds a lot to striking power, but who knows. I am interested to see how he performs with less fat, he could probably make 185 without losing muscle.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

It does as long as it isn't as much to the point that it slows you down significantly. You can try it out by punching a heavy bag with and without a 3 lbs dumbbell in your hand. 3 lbs won't slow you down, but your punch will be much more powerfull.

Not so sure about 185, but 205 certainly.

He's won me over. Wonder if he's looking to head south. Looks like he's taking the fight against Cormier seriously.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

An in shape, motivated Roy Nelson is a baaaaaaad man.

Once he runs through DC, I'd match him up with Penn. Perhaps a catch weight?

I'm curious how his jitz game has been affected now that he doesn't have his belly as a smothering tool.
