Two equally trained fighters, yes the big I will always win that's why there are Weight class's. People don't try this at home don't go up to a big guy thinking that you will be able to take him, he might know how to fight. Don't believe the saying the bigger they are the harder they fall, the bigger they are the harder they hit.

I guess this was filmed in '92 using equipment from the 60's? I'm pretty sure there's baby footage of me from 1992 that looks 100x better than this.

The body builder tired himself out when he was on top. He was working to hard while Sauer was just relaxing buying his time and saving some energy.

Don't get me wrong I think bodybuilding is great to do. Most people don't realize that the development of resistance training which is used in all kinds of sports training comes straight from bodybuilding. But it's supplementary not an end in itself. It will develop your body's strength and set you up for success but you have to train for technique in addition. This fight is a display of pure strength vs pure technique.

An axe yes, its something that takes trainning, Its no doubt a strong bodybuilder stand no chance in competing with a pro "tree cutter". But since human have an instinct on how to atack naturally.. What if Mr Utah just tackle most martial art and hold them down and pound them?.. I dont think most can stand up to his incredible strength. Taken from this video that Mr Utah manage to force his way out of Pedro 's mount few time by brute strength. Ya nowadays all bodybuilders do other exercise too

That's a pretty general statement. Bodybuilding has a place as supplementary conditioning. One just can't expect it to be the only thing you need to do. I've seen a bodybuilder that didn't do other activities, who was muscle bound and couldn't even swing an axe properly despite his impressive physique.

Looking at how he manage to "turn" pedro and get out of pedro's moutn by pure strength. I think they would actually beat most other martial artist.

As I understand it this was a challenge match, and this occured before MMA was an established sport, so at the time the debate was not settled, and many more bodybuilders assumed that their strength made them tougher in a fight.

the bodybuilder didnt have the speed to fight standing. and he sure as hell had no buisness getting on the ground with a Gracie trainee. im dont grapple, but a bodybuilders lack endurance and flexibility would make a ground fight even worse. atleast thats what i would imagine.

Well said man. If they had put this guy against a Muay Thai guy or maybe even a good boxer, I have too say it would have been a different story. If it had been a 250lb boxer or Muay Thai guy he would have been knocked out cold. He's a brilliant grappler but his footwork was terrible and he had his hands down. If he had fought a guy who could actually fight his best bet would have been to take the guy down immediately.
