    Default Mocco a victim of weight loss?

    It is possible the weight loss is affecting the New Jersey warrior not accustomed to losing weight. He lost a period to Faust, had a close one with Sigman and lost to Rowlands. He usually does better where there is an allowance.

    Apparenlty we both have little to do this evening Big. Its possible that Mocco is not used to weight loss, but it isn't like he was an offensive Juggernaut or anything.

    The only real surprise in the matches you list is that he lost a period to Faust. That was bound to happen eventually though. Faust isn't known for his offense either.

    Mocco's usually close with Sigmon and HE's only beaten Rowlands once or twice. I'd imagine that Sigmon cuts as much as Mocco Does.

    Also, the weights been like this for a few years now. It isn't like this is the first time he's had to make weight.

    I'm a fat guy too so I know what thats like and I don't think its all that horrible. Worlds and Olympics are scratched so if he has a hard time making scratch now, well then on that point alone, if he were in Russia he might not be "picked" for the team.

    Mocco is a big guy and would probably do better if he could be at a more natural weight for him. I do think Big has a point, which is 264 is too low of a weight for Heavies.

    The same might be true for Konrad.

    Not in my book. The lower we make the weight, the less chest bumping "matches" there are. 265 is just fine.

    By the way, most of us fat guys consider weight loss "beneficial", and not "victims of".

    Karelin used to weigh over 300. He wasn't chest bumping.

    I don't think Mocco really weighs that much. I remember reading/hearing somewhere that when he was in college that he walked around at 275.

    Thats only nine pounds to get down to 264.5 and its not like ol' Stevie is just skin and bones.

    Mocco's high school coach told me Mocco weighs 300 when not cutting weight.

    And it would be 10.5 pounds, not 9.
