I always wished he cut down to 185. He's so short, he always seemed to win on just power and guts. Can you imagine Igor vs a 185 lb. brawler like Leben? That would be awesome.

Honestly I don't think he could make that kind of cut. I'm practically the same size and build as Igor, and I have trouble getting below 205, which is what he was fighting at in his last fights. He wasn't defined at all, but I think he'd lose too much stamina dropping down another 20lbs.

It's to bad. He was one of the pioneer's, especially for striker's.

Ah , I think he should be a kickboxer or put on some weight. way to thin IMO. He did have skills though.

He is a kickboxer, a very accomplished one. The weight issue I guess is up to him though. I'm not sure what weight class suits him, although I'm against cutting.

I'll take the bait.

Chuck and Wandy styles may be sloppy to you, and their technique may not be perfect for you, but it works for them. The bottom line is they throw strikes and they land. I would get killed using Chuck's style. It works for him. To me, that is the definition of Mixed Martial Arts. Taking bits and pieces of different styles and adapt them to your body style and your abilities. If the thread was titled, "who is the best technical striker" then I would completely agree with you guys.

Ok, that was my 2 cents.


Damn good post
