      I'm actually on that routine now I got a set of 1.45 minute of full body exercise from push ups to pull ups to squats to dips and etc and practice boxing 6 days a week it's amazing you actually can build a solid dense body with that and I'm guy that used to about 225lbs from lifting weights it's just not the same but I'm not going to lie there are benefits to both so if you got the time do that

      That’s not they are saying. They are saying he was given steroids and the best nutrition under the Cuban Olympic program. If he was in this sport at 19 he would be forced to be natty.

    UFC cut Romero because they didn't want him destroying the entire division again. Also this is why Robert Whitaker is such a beast he went toe to toe with this monster unlike Izzy who was back peddling the whole fight

      Bro yoel is a beast but he literally did nothing in the izzy fight lol. Adesanya fought his point fighting style which he knows wins decisions so it was upto yoel to close the distance. Why the hell would izzy engage with such a monster when he can just stay at range and leg kick him into a victory lol

    People don't retire at 35-40 because they're too old to compete. People retire at 35-40 because they spent years 19 through 35 getting punched in the face and kicked in the head and there's only so much of that you can take in one lifetime.
    Him beginning his MMA career at 36 isn't that crazy, imo. It's literally how this sport started out and the man is a fucking machine and tougher than a tractor tire.
