Yes you're right I haven't spent much time in a gym to workout because I was busy spending time in a gym where "real athleticism" is displayed, in a BASKETBALL gym. I played college ball (NAIA) but still college ball nonetheless. Athleticism isn't displayed in a gym with weights, its displayed on a field, a court or a cage. People saying he is all hype is referring to his MMA ability not his work inside a friggin gym, get a clue. This isn't a weight lifting competition, its a competition to see who is the more well rounded mixed martial artist and for someone to bring Jordan's prowess in that area into question is not that far fetched. I mean obviously you are a meathead who thinks how much weight you can lift will in turn make you successful in all facets of life but it doesn't. Again Shawn Jordan is STRONG,ATHLETIC and a PHYSICAL SPECIMEN nobody ever questioned that, they questioned whether or not he is a complete enough MMA fighter to beat Kongo and thats it. I now look forward to how you can incorporate the word "silly" into your rebuttal.
P.S. Shawn Jordan is STRONG AND ATHLETIC
i referenced 250-pounds because that is what jordan weighs. what do you not understand about that? that is what makes him athletic. the fact that he is stong, fast and agile while weighing 250-pounds. youre backtracking here.
five of the top linebackers(vilma,lewis,urlacher,mayo,willis) all have combine 40's in the 4.55-4.58 range. and these guys are all over 6'0 tall. my reference to jordans strength, power and agility also relates to his athletecism, which generally relates(along with technique) to mma fighting.
and i dont think anyone here cares about you and your college basketball because i dont think anyone who ever played on the collegiate or even high school level would ever discredit anyone who is 5'11", bench-presses 600/powercleans 450/somersaults one-handed and backflips and runs 4.5/40's.
now what about those "ten guys on every nfl roster" that are 5'11" 250-pounds that can run a 4.5/40?
and dont try to act stupid not knowing that 250 pounds(jordans weight) was part of the criteria.
