This man is one of my personal favorite super heavyweights of all time.

Eric ‘Butterbean’ Esch may only stand at five-foot-eleven inches tall, but he makes up for it in his jaw-dropping number on the scale that reads 425 pounds.

‘Butterbean’ started off his combat sports career when he took up professional boxing, starting off (15-0) with a slew of knockouts to his name.

Esch would then decide to take it a step further when he made a successful professional kickboxing debut against Yusuke Fujimoto at K-1 in 2013.

Just months later ‘Butterbean’ would make his MMA debut in K-1 against Genki Sudo, but would sadly suffer a second round heel-hook submission defeat.

For the next ten years Esch would simultaneously compete in professional boxing and MMA contests before walking away from the cage after a first round loss to Sandy Bowman in Prestige Fighting in 2011. His record at the end of his MMA career sat at an admirable (17-10-1).

‘Butterbean’ would continue to compete in boxing for the next two years and finally decided to end his combat sports career in June of 2013 after suffering a second round TKO loss to Kirk Lawton in England. His boxing record officially stands at (77-10-4).
