Is Roy Nelson fit? Well, he's relatively fit compared to the average joe. But for someone around the same weight, in the same field, I think almost everyone would regard a fighter like Brock Lesnar as fitter - despite not being as capable in the ring.
Hey he is a 120kg+ guy who can go a full 3*5 min round boxing/wrestling. That is athletic. The fact that he does it with all that extra fat makes him more athletic. It's like a 100kg guy doing it with weight belts Ofc he would be better without the extra weight. But the fact that he does have it makes him more athletic not less athletic. It's like two dudes climbing a wall where one has to wear a backpack with 10kg in it and the other don't. They still do the same time up the wall. Who is more athletic?

Brock Lesnar roided up in his wrestling days and that is a big problem in fitness anyway. If you take lets say extra testosterone you can build muscle like nobodys business and the problem today is that many young males look at formerly roided up people and think "fitness"

Like I said, depends on your definition of the word athletic. He could be called an athlete, sure - in the same way that a sumo wrestler could be called an athlete. However, 'athletic' is not a word most people would generally use to describe their build.

He is a fat bastard. A strong fat bastard. An incredibly skillful and deadly fat bastard. In some ways, a relatively fit fat bastard. But a fat bastard nonetheless.

Go to a local marathon - there are always people running it with guts. Not great for the knees, but not necessarily a sign you have no fitness

No, technically they won it with their racket.
