MMA Fighters That Are Freaks

WHich Ufc Fighter is a freak meaning they have something aside from skills? Such as athletically ability that is above average or can do something that the average fighter can't do such as BJ Penn freakish flexibility. I know everyone is skill technically but some fighters have something special that puts them above someone who is the same technically. Just wondering who is the most freakiest, from watching I came up with two Anderson, BJ Penn, I think anderson is more of a freak than BJ Penn...anyone else?

Brock Lesnar.

It's very difficult to find an athlete of his size that can do the things he can do.

Brock Lesnars huuuge frame and ability to move very fast with all that mass.

BJ Penns chin / flexibity.

Andersons Silva's speed and reaction time is godly.

Shane Carwins punching power.

GSP's amazing athletic ability.

Those 5 imo all have very special abilities. And thats why they are all in my

I think Brock's the obvious first choice. Pudzian' aint far off either, his huge and quick too.

what?? His physique is that of a offensive lineman or a defensive tackle. There is no one in the NFL today with that type of body that plays that position. Lesnar could have been a good NFL player if he had the time to actually train in that position. The vikings wanted to send him to NFL europe so he can develop, he didnt want to cause of being too far from family. There is a OLine player on the Patriots who was in the exact shoes Lesnar was in, just the pats decided to take a shot at him and trained him up for 2-3 years before he started...now hes one heck of a player.

There are other athletes like Terrell Owens who has a big body and has exceptional skill... dunno if you meant that? but no where near the bigger upper body that Lesnar has.

He is one of the biggest WRs in the NFL and probably the best physique across all positions.
