Meet the ‘Iranian Hulk,’ the laughably huge 24-year-old powerlifter

You know how Yao Ming makes everyone he stands next to, even fellow NBA players, look extremely small? 24-year-old Iranian powerlifter Sajad Gharibi, whose upper body is approximately the same size as a giant redwood tree, is the same way for people of average height.

Gharibi, nicknamed the "Iranian Hulk" and "Persian Hercules", went viral after people discovered his incredible Instagram page. He’s a real-life caricature. Gharibi is angling for a tryout with WWE and tagged Triple H in one of his photos, and we can’t stop thinking about seeing him in the same ring with a tiny high-flyer like Kalisto.
