The decade between the fighters is the elephant in the room when considering this category. Additionally, the number and type of opponents and fights on the résumés of each man must be taken into account. Marquez has been in scores of grueling scraps and has taken his share of punishment. The wear and tear is real, despite his incredible athleticism. Bradley is stronger, leaner, has kept his weight stable over time and hasn't suffered nearly as much damage. He is so certain of his superiority, in fact, that he revealed a game plan built on those advantages.

Advantage: Bradley
