No, this is not one of MRuss’ award winning photoshops, although we imagine everyone in the UFC’s heavyweight division wishes it was. It turns out that this beanstalkian figure is Olivier Richter, otherwise known as the tallest man in Holland. He stands at 7’2, or three inches taller than Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve, and according to Alistair Overeem, has already begun to train kickboxing and weight lifting with the hopes of one day making it into the UFC.
It’s obviously too early to tell what kind of fighter Richter will be, but you have to see the potential in a guy that makes the 6’5, 265 lb Ubereem look like a child, a notion that this writer didn’t think was humanly possible. Seriously, my universe is fucking shattered right now. Discuss, Potato Nation, or perhaps start preparing for the day this guy decides to come to your dorm room, beat the fuck out of your roommate, take his bed, smack a couple of your teachers, your professors, your RAs, and your deans.
