    That said, I would ABSOLUTELY believe that there is a misappropriation of some single number threshold in the BMI world.

    I've heard Munoz's commitment and dedication to MMA questioned before, so not surprising to hear about this. I understand that everyone copes with depression in their own ways, and I'm sympathetic, but ballooning up in between fights is nothing new for him. The only thing significant about this fight is that he began his camp the most out of shape he's ever been. How that translates into him becoming the best fighter he's ever been, as he claims in interviews is beyond me, but sounds like the standard cliche. Boetsch has looked hungrier to me, especially since he's made the effort to lose weight and dropped down a division.

    Slightly skewed. Things like muscle mass can throw it off. However those inconsistencies are not common enough to Push the ratio in either direction

    He definitely wouldn't be classified as obese in the left picture.

    Anybody else notice the picture on the left looks like was taken before a training session and the picture on right looks like it was taken right after a workout.
