He was clearly the larger man but he has fought guys smaller and displayed great JJ so it is what it is.....may be old footage but the beauty of that is he has only improved...
I'm not saying Lyoto was bad in the bout, just the performance was nothing to shout from the rooftops about. And, IMO, it wasn't the most excited match I'd ever seen.
The fact that this is a while ago and he has improved, no doubt, is a positive.
