It really does just come down to a matter of opinion. Smaller guys move quicker and don't gas-out as quickly, which is more pleasing to the eye, but there will always be a mainstream interest in seeing the biggest guys throwing bombs. Half of what makes a guy like Brock Lesnar so popular is his sheer size.
