    Who`d win in a street fight or an MMA fight between a rugby player and a smaller MMA fighter?

    It really depends on how small the fighter is. There does come a point when size matters. Would Demetrius Johnson beat Lebron James in a fight ? Of course not. If we are talking about a big 170 lber or 185 lb fighter then they would beat the big sports star in a fight very easily.

    Tommy Hearns would have knocked Lebron out when he only weighed 147.

    Yes I agree.he was 6'1 in height with a long reach and great power and obviously walked around way higher than 147. What would a tiny midget like Demetrius Johnson do ?

    I don't really follow Rugby but that James Haskell signed for Bellator this year so we'll see how he does

    Depends on the individual many people can naturally fight

    Who would win between a giant American Football player and a Croat half his size? Wait, I know.

    Even if he can't fight/doesn't have a fighting mentality I GUARANTEE you he beats Demetrius Johnson in a fight, Street or cage. Would you disagree ? Size matters when it is an extreme size/strength difference.

    There was woman on a British quiz show who said to the host that she attended an amateur rugby match once and knocked out a rugby player with one punch after getting into an arguement with him about something!
