Strongman is a sport where all the biggest and strongest athletes come together to showcase not only their strength, but also their athleticism. But one of the most common thing in this sport is the that the taller you are, the better chance that you’ll have to be successful in this sport. Obviously, this is the case in a majority of sports.
In the football and especially in basketball, tall people are valued more than short athletes. Even though this is the case, this doesn’t mean that shorter athletes aren’t able to be successful. For instance, Doug Flutie, Sam Mills, Drew Brees and the most recent Heisman Trophy winner Kyle Murray. Obviously, these athletes are an anomaly. They also give others that are vertically challenged the hope(even though false) of having the same success at the highest level in their sport.
There’s one sport that is literally impossible for a short competitor to be a success. This sport is known as strongman or world strongest man. Obviously height doesn’t necessarily determine how strong a person is, but the lack of is a major issue when it comes to being successful in many strong man events. In strongman, the average heights range from 6’3 to 6’8. Anything below 6’3 is considered short or better yet undersized.
Events such as the Fingal’s Fingers and the Atlas stones literally a built for the tall man. So when you have a 4’5 bodybuilder, powerlifter and strongman in Jason Owen from the UK. It becomes refreshing. The question that I have, is can Jason Owen actually successfully compete in strongman competition? What are your thoughts.
Chuck Liddell’s third match with Tito Ortiz took place at the Forum in Inglewood, California. In each of their earlier matches Chuck Liddell was able to pull off the victory. With the original battle lasting only a whopping 38 seconds.
Just like in any other fight, both fighters used the first round to feel each other out. Surprisingly, towards the end of the first round Tito Ortiz was able to catch Chuck Liddell with a combo that ended with a strike that put Chuck Liddell to sleep.
Following this Tito Ortiz did what he does best, ground and pound. Tito Ortiz was able to land a few more shots before the fight was stopped.
To celebrate his victory, Tito Ortiz did his burial celebration. The irony of this celebration is that Tito Ortiz may have literally put an end to Chuck Liddell’s career.
Following the fight, Tito Ortiz humbly showed his appreciation and respect to Chuck Liddell by thanking him for the opportunity and shaking his hand.
