Is this pure trolling? There is no super heavyweight class in pro boxing. If there were, monsters like Tyson Fury, Lennox Lewis, Anthony Joshua, Wladimir Klitschko, etc. would be in it... but those are just heavyweights. And the reason cruiserweights aren't spoiling to fight those guys is... size definitely fucking matters in striking, dude. Nobody thinks heavyweights are actually the best fighters. The compliments paid to Ali were things like "he fights like a welterweight." Same in wrestling; everybody knows the most explosive athletes are at the lower weights. But that doesn't mean those dudes can actually beat bigger guys head to head. That's why we talk about "pound for pound" in weight class sports. Sure, mass CAN slow you down. But it can also make you harder to unbalance, put a little more heft behind your punches, lets you put more pressure in the clinch, and most of all it often corresponds to greater range. Meanwhile a slick BJJ practitioner can catch a monster in a triangle or armbar or w/e.

Forget size, The most obvious point missed by this smug cunt is that when boxers or MMA fighters like Jorge that have very good stand up skills meet the normal MMA fighter who don’t have a background in boxing they out box and normally catch them with that shot, till isn’t a boxer an masvidal near enough is, so going toe toe till was always going to come unstuck.

It always favors the smaller guy, except Jon Jones cause he throws singles strikes so shorter fighters can't counter him.

This just isn't true. Size is almost always better until the point of demonising returns, which is only a factor in the heavyweight division and up.. Assuming a good skill set and movement (which till obviously has) size is a benefit. That's the reason we have divisions. The only advantage smaller guys have in their division is that they have forward pressure styles and are always trying to close the distance. It looks good when you're coming forward, while the taller guy will always be using his reach and keeping the distance, resulting in backward movement more often. It looks good to the judges and a lot of fans when you're the guy "going after" the other. Length is always a factor. How many champions in history are short for their division vs how many are tall for the division? Tall champs are much more common than short.

8:00 I wonder if Chael drops little mistakes into his commentary on purpose. I think it's entirely possible. His second opponent was Jason Miller, and he then fought DAN Miller in his first UFC fight, at the MGM, not at the Hard Rock. He's also had 48 fights, not 45. Can't find Pat Healy listed anywhere on Chris Leben's page either.
I love this man, he's a brilliant troll. Gets me every time ;)

EDIT - Just considered that some amateur fights might not be listed on Wikipedia or Sherdog. I've had a few fights and they're on Sherdog. But my friend had a pro MMA fight in Taiwan that wasn't listed. So perhaps Chael did fight Dan Miller but the fight wasn't recognized on Sherdog/other outlets.

@PuffTheMagicHobo Neither of them were champion though. Chael said that Brock is the only UFC HW champ that had to cut weight, but I think Tim S. also met those criteria.

Whoa Chael son. Ali was 230-245 in his prime. 198 was when he was very young starting as a heavyweight. You let yourself down with your lack of boxing knowledge. Also Till cheated his way to the top and the two times he has made weight he has lost. The rest of the time he has come on far heavy than his opponent and won on that advantage. Size does matter, especially at the lower to middle weights.

LIMITED BY LOGIC(?) Joshua 10:12-15
We would never think of ordering the sun and moon to stand still today. We have no need to, we don’t have the faith to, we are filled with too much logic and science to. The latter reason is the most dangerous of the three! Scientists say the earth revolves around the sun, not the other way round (true) and that if the earth, which is spinning at approximately 1,000 miles per hour or 1600 km/hr, suddenly stops, we would all go flying off into outer space! When we are limited by logic we forget who is constantly in control, who makes the rules and can break the rules. No weapon, limitation, problem, circumstance or condition is too great for JESUS. Ask Him, if He will, He will do it.

Chael is tripping. Every statistic (both in MMA and in street violence) shows, that size is a very important factor that greatly favours the heavier fighter (up to a point of course).

This fool is funny and insightful, yeah the dude is right, bigger CAN be better if the guy can use his reach well like Hearns vs Duran, but simply being bigger in boxing is not good vs a better dude... think Mcgregor vs Mayweather....Mayweather is way smaller and way better at boxing than McGregor...bigger alone doesn't make someone better...he's a crazy fool but he's telling the truth....the bright lights don't make the fight...fighters make the fight

Boxing analogy about size is nonsense. Wlad and Vitali dominated heavyweight due to size. Lewis dominated heavyweight due to size. Even now Wilder 6'7", Fury 6'9", Joshua 6'6". Smaller fighters for 15-20 years haven't got close to being top level heavyweights.

Shane Carwin was 265 lbs when he won the Interim Heavyweight Title against Frank Mir, who was also 265 lbs in that fight. But aside from Lesnar, I don't think there's ever been an undisputed heavyweight champ to max out in weight.

Been saying pretty much the same thing all along. Guys like Masvidal have been in the game for ages, dude had his first pro fight way back in 2003 FFS. All those years in the octagon pay off, it's not just about skill and talent. But the UFC press machine likes hyping these upcoming guys, with perfect, shiny, padded records to get those PPV's in. So when I was talking with people about this fight they were like "loool, Masvidal's been out for ages and he has a record of 32-12, he's gonna get smoked". Bruh, first of all, check out the names on that record, then consider that when you've been in the octagon for almost two decade,s you're bound to take a few L's.

Yeah, people are just too fixated on records and money fights these days, but the old-school fighters like Masvidal and Sonnen for that matter, come from an era where that shit wasn't as important and people just came to fight. That's the real difference and I think Masvidal vs Till demonstrated that clash of generations perfectly.

Wrong Chael!!! lol Wonderboy lost to Till because of size. Cerrone got destroyed by Till because of size. Masvidal could have one of the best chin's in MMA and weathered the storm and then took him out. To prove your point you would have to say that if you fought a smaller version of yourself, in stand up, that you would be at a disadvantage. Now that I think about it, you may indeed say that just to prove your delusional point lol.
