Possibly. We'll never find out though. Sanders may have been a fat golfer, but he had a combination of power, handspeed, awkwardness and aggression that is unmatched by any fighter today, maybe Cammarelle if he ever went pro. Even given that, there are clear differences between the Wlad of today and the Wlad of then. Pre-Steward Wlad had a narrower stance, fought more straight up, and often just stuck out a light half-jab that never touched the opponent's face in between bursts of aggression. He was nowhere near as adept at cutting off the ring, and didn't clinch half as much, preferring to push an opponent off (which gave them a short period in which to work on the inside). Current Wlad has a much wider stance, stalks like a paedo, and uses his lead hand in a much more versatile manner. He limpet clinches every time an opponent gets within their punching range, and is generally much more aware of incoming punches, which leads to him getting hit far less often.
