Combat Approach
Standing close to 7 feet with an 88 inch reach, Semmy Schilt's sheer size made him a difficult task for any opponent. This was a problem for fighters who relied on the high guard; Schilt's weight in his strikes allowed him to stun or concuss opponents through their defense. Schilt's excellent conditioning and hulking size also lent him to attritional fighting, where he would wear his opponents down with strikes at range throughout the course of a fight.
