9. Eric “Butterbean” Esch – Boxing, Kickboxing, MMA
Eric Esch, or “Butterbean” as his fans lovingly call him, is the spitting image of the idiom, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”
Let’s be real, Butterbean looks out of shape, to say the least. Any opponent who has stepped into the ring thinking the same sentiment was in for a very big surprise… not the fun kind.
Despite weighing a whopping 425 lb while standing at 5’11” – yeah, let that sink in – Butterbean was a wrecking ball in the boxing ring before retiring with a 77-10-4 record.
The super heavyweight fighter also retired with a 17-10 MMA record and 3-4 kickboxing record.
At some point, you almost need to be built like Butterbean to take that type of damage.
