Body Builder or MMA Fighter? 6 UFC Fighters with Crazy Physiques
MMA is a sport of the upmost intensity, as well as athleticism. Today, we take a look at some fighters from the UFC that are absolutely jacked and show off just how incredibly good they’re conditioning is, resulting in some crazy physiques.
6. Francis Ngannou
Kicking off our list at number 6 is a rising superstar who is also set to challenge for the heavyweight title in January, Francis “The Predator” Ngannou. Standing at 6’4 and 260 pounds, he’s certainly a force to be reckoned with.
He showcases well a great core, with solid muscle in pretty much every area of his body. His body fat is minimal, which has certainly helped him in the heavyweight division, being a supreme athlete.
5. Conor McGregor
Love him or hate him, the Irish Sensation is one of the biggest names currently in all sports, and for good reason. Besides his great ability on a mic, Mystic Mac backs every word he says inside the octagon.
Speaking for his physique, he has a unique build, having a 74-inch reach standing at just 5’9, but is absolutely shredded and carries a lot of power, as displayed in his fights.
4. Sage Northcutt
Sage Northcutt is a current lightweight rising prospect who is known for his insane athleticism and ripped body. He’s been sponsored by Reebok exclusively and several fitness companies in which he regularly displays on social media.
He is also currently one of the youngest fighters on the roster, so we’re excited to see just how more fit he gets as well as how he moves up the lightweight rankings in the coming years.
3. Tyron Woodley
The current UFC Welterweight champ is an absolute animal in the cage…and out. A former college wrestling standout, Woodley is an outstanding athlete with some serious explosion in his strikes.
Standing at 5’9, Woodley is extremely muscular for the welterweight limit of 170, but is built like a tank, which seems to have a great gas tank as well, going 5 rounds with ease in his last 3 fights.
2. Luke Rockhold
The former middleweight champion, who is set to challenge newly crowned king, Robert Whittaker, is one of the more versatile athletes in the UFC today.
He excels not only inside the cage, but in other sports such as surfing. He stands at 6’4 and is extremely lean, always looking in top shape, even out of fight camp.
1. Yoel Romero
Coming in at number one is top middleweight, Yoel “Soldier of God” Romero, and for good reason. He seems to be the perfect combination of many athletic attributes, as well as having arguably the most shredded physique in the promotion.
What is crazy is that Yoel is currently 40 years old, and is ripped more than most, if not all MMA fighters today.
