Fighting Record: 1415-0 (claimed)
Everyday he did 4,000 one and two legged squats, which included 700
jumping squats. His workout also consisted of 2,000 pushups (Indian
style). He ran five miles plus per day and he grappled for another fours
hour every day.
Diet: High-energy, hyper-protein diet combining a gargantuan amount of meat with barley, boiled beans, oatmeal, ash (believed to help fortify the body), dried fruit, bread and wine. Three meals a day.
Bonus: Regular massage and high quality medical care helped mitigate an otherwise very severe training regimen.
Fighting Strategy: First, took away his opponent’s ability to kick and move by kicking his legs.
Second, pounce on his opponent with punches and elbow strikes.
Third, once his opponent is beaten to the ground he kicks him into the groin.
Fourth, follows up with submission wrestling techniques.
+ Bull Hammer. Punch between the eyes
+ Elbow Drop. On top of the head in a standing position.
+ Gorilla Press
+ Delayed suplex
+ Sitdown Splash
+ Gigantic height and reach. So tall that he is inherently harder to reach with punches and high kicks and can hide himself behind the fortress of a powerful and devastating jab and become virtually unbeatable. He also possess a good uppercut for those who come too close.
+ Trained only to kill. He always goes for the kill.
+ Won’t tap out. Prefers a broken limbs or death than tapping out.
+ Superhuman strength.
+ Excessive sweating. Which make him really slippery and impossible to get a firm hold on.
+ Enormous intimidation factor. Fearsome size, look, and reputation.
Height. Can make him more susceptible to takedowns, armbars and leglocks.
His claim of “never put a knee on the ground” seems improbable since his ultra-long legs made him an easy target for double leg takedowns.

Maximinus almost nine feet tall. 300 pounds with one arm from the ground to an overhand position. He was in any case a man of such frightening appearance and colossal size that there is no obvious comparison to be drawn with any of the best-trained Greek athletes or warrior elite of the barbarians

Pankratiasts would compete naked in a wrestling-pit, and covered themselves in
oil. The referee would use a rod to enforce the rules. There were no rounds or
time limits, and the fight only ended once somebody gave up or was rendered
unconscious (or dead). Fighters would signal defeat by raising their arm or
