Athletes Who Are Stronger Than They Look

Here's to the little guys.

The ones who stand a full two feet shorter than their teammates. The ones who are too scrawny to bench even the minimum weight at the NBA combine. The ones who are laughed at more often than they're feared.

Sports leagues are full of giants—superhuman men and women who seem to pack in hundreds of pounds of muscle and stand several miles tall, therefore able to destroy any opponents that stand in their way.

However, sports leagues are also full of little guys—normal sized humans with abnormal abilities, tiny people that may look too weak to ever be a threat but could easily knock you out in a single blow.

It's high time we bring some recognition to those athletes that are a whole lot stronger than anyone gives them credit for.

This list is dedicated to the players who hit harder, fight harder and can lift more than their small frames suggest.

After all, as the old proverb says, it's not the size of the dog in the fight that matters.

It's the size of the fight in the dog.
