his weight is big, because he is tall. but his hip size is ridiculously small, it probably helps him do his magic grappling tho. And we all know his real problem is not the ground game :P
Same for Hansen. He reminds me of Hominick in terms of size, he is just taller i think.
I guess UFC LW are just more well rounded, but its hard to compare.. different rules, different way of fighting... different crowd too.. a crowd that keeps asking you to engage, dont care how concentrated you are, it probably motivates you to give more in terms of 'action'.
