Re: street fight: Jason Khalifa vs Ronnie Coleman

Do you mean Jason Khalipa? (WFS)

Please take the time to ensure that you spell peoples names correctly.

w/middle easterns, the P and the F are SOMETIMES interchangeable. I'm used to seeing "khalifa" more than "khalipa". I'm sure the young man in question isn't that offended. If he's reading this and IS then I sincerely apologize.

anyway, I think he'd probably kick Ronnie Coleman's arse.

So yeah, the point of this thread was to discuss what you all think a typical bodybuilder's fighting capabilities would be. I've noticed sometimes when going out that people tend to be intimidated by bodybuilder-type physiques and assume that they'd be able to kick most everyone else's asses.

I'm sure their sheer strength will give them an advantage but wouldn't someone who's more explosive and athletic in general be able to win? Or would it kind of be a luck of the draw kind of thing? Like if the BBer managed to land the first punch... or if the BBer managed to grab a hold of the CFer and then slam in on the ground...

I don't know.. thoughts?

Re: street fight: Jason Khalifa vs Ronnie Coleman

My guess is that the guy who wants to win the most is gonna win. Second most important factor is whatever combatives training each guy has, and how seriously they took that training. A distant, distant third is the individual's fitness, or their physical characteristics.

Winning a street fight is mostly about having the killer mindset.

Mindset IS hugely important but im not sure id rate a RAGING Mr Bean over a mildly angry - say Josh Everrt.....


The mindset (obviously not just rage/anger) might give direction and steerage to the motor but if the vehicle is a clapped out 3 wheel banger, weak and light weight its not going to be doing much damage.

Where as a mildly angry Jason/Josh/Rob Orlando is sitting behind the the equivalent of a 16 wheel truck...lots more power under the bonnet.

Mass explosive power and stamina are obviously all hugely important fight traits. A CFer will almost certainly have more then any straight bodybuilder (barring mass)- trained at closer time domains to and mimicking more closely a fight.


In this weighty hypothetical issue - - id argue for Jason on account of where his workouts take him - mindset + explosive force. Rob Orlando could for sure

I was thinking about that . . . would it be people's or peoples'? I used the plural "names" so I'm talking about more than one person.

Either way, thanks for watching out for me, and no worries about the sarcasm

As for the OP, assuming both fighters are equally mentally committed (I'm thinking "bar brawl" level rather than "tear someones face off like a wild animal level" which would get too ugly and unpredictable) I think Jason would take it if they stayed on their feet because he is well conditioned and presumably more agile, and coleman would take it if it went to the ground. Grappling with someone that strong will be damn near impossible without some serious skill.

Re: street fight: Jason Khalifa vs Ronnie Coleman

I feel like Khalipa would do better if he was able to rush in and out, more of guerilla (pardon spelling) style attack, but I feel as though Ronnie would have him done if Jason got too close for too long, simply due to Ronnie's overwhelming size.
He would probably also bait Jason into an attack by repeatedly yelling "Hey buddy" at him

Wasn't Coleman a police officer?

Forgot to say that is of course if the fight IS longer duration and say one of them doesnt preempt or get a decisive strike in fast!
