Is it fair to say UFC fighters are ripped, jacked or shredded?

Sometimes I think many UFC fighters people describe as being "ripped" or "shredded" are aren't that out of the ordinary.

They're what literally everyone would look like if they ate healthy food, practiced good lifestyle habits and were paid to work out/train as a full time job.

To help put things in perspective, here's some pics.

This guy is known as Helmut Streibl.

This guy calls himself Carlito XXXL.

Hard work is the only real PED.

Prospects -- Doo Hoo Choi, Ashlee Evans Smith, Mickey Gall, Sage Northcutt, Thomas Almeida, Yair Rodriguez, Lorenz Larkin, Robert Whittaker

Even when I worked out regular my goal was never to look like that.

Looks f˙cking minging if you ask me.

If you don't read the papers you're uninformed. If you do read the papers you're misinformed.

It is not possible to attain the level shown in those pictures without endogenous Testosterone, when your BF drops that low your natural test will follow decreasing your musclemass and clinging onto any fat it can.

If 'ripped', 'jacked' etc are not attainable naturally then under USADA we should never, ever expect to see a UFC fighter fall into this catagory.

Try and let those people on your pictures fight 15 minutes in a cage, I bet they are all gassed within the minute...
