so many of these mma'ers are 90kg+ how do they get up so high, weights? or does bone build have more to do with it.

I would say the majority of these guys lift weights to increase strength, size and endurance ... it is just the way of the world and the best way to get an edge. As I recall, Victor weighed even more when he fought and beat Dan "The Beast" Severn a year or so ago that I went to see. Victor has to cut weight to get into this range.

90 Kilograms is only 198 lbs and at 5'8.5" for myself, I weight 195 lbs. I don't consider this to be a large amount of weight at all. I also have to continually keep at my weight otherwise I lose it too easily.

Im 2oo to 215 depending but usually around 205. I have to work to keep this weight and at 6 1.5 ft this isnt a lot of mass. I dont think anyways. Before I statred training with weights i was fighting at 165.

165 lbs, this was around my weight prior to weight lifting as well.

cool you get massive strength gains off weights i think they should be in any program really and bag work to even it all out.

my height is 6"1 so i guess you could call me slender but my shoulders are naturally wide

Regarding Tank Abbot, at UFC 45 a poll was done to see who the top 10 most popular fighters were of all time and this was the list:

* David "Tank" Abbott
* Mark Coleman
* Randy Couture
* Don Frye
* Royce Gracie
* Pat Miletich
* Marco Ruas
* Dan Severn
* Ken Shamrock
* Oleg Taktarov

So it looks like the general public loves Tank.

Pat Miletich doesn't look like he belongs in that list. That's odd considering he was nicknamed the Croatian Sedation for a while.

Quote:

Victor also trains at Arashi-do in Edmonton and is one of my Instructor's training partners. I've had the opportunity of meeting him twice, once at a grappling tournament and once at the George St. Pierre seminar where Victor was George's demonstration partner. Victor is a nice guy but he is all business in the ring and my Instructor says that Victor is at the top of his game and it is like he just went to the next level. Victor was a personal trainer but has recently quit his job to train full time now. Now that Mark Pavelich has got his foot in the door at the UFC with Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald, look for Victor to soon be seen there as well.




And with that said, watch for him on Wednesday, December 13, 2006 on UFC's Ultimate Fight Night on Spike where he will be making his debut. Congrads to him as it is well deserved and long in coming.
