    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.

    Keeping in mind those numbers are a bit skewed by using BMI as the only real benchmark which isnt entirely accurate.

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

    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.

    I would like to hear more too. I'll admit in advance that I'm douchey, trained in statistics, and work in analysis for a living, but I just don't believe anyone sane made a criteria that applies to populations regarding health that doesn't have any bearing for individuals.

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