NOT photoshop: Meet the man with massive hands

16 June 2015 / 1 year 4 months ago

Saying 50-year-old armwrestler Jeff Dabe has big hands would be a huge understatement. Dabe’s "bear paws" are so big that he has been compared to cartoon characters like Popeye and Wreck-It Ralph.

According to Oddity Central, Jeff Dabe, from Stacy, Minnesota, started competing in arm wrestling tournaments in the late 70s.

He soon became one of the most promising figures in the sport, but disaster struck in 1986, around the time he received an invitation to the prestigious Over the Top contest.

Jeff’s right arm popped during a close 2-3 minute arm wrestling match and was never the same after that.

He never got it checked out by a doctor, but decided to take a break from the sport.

He only started competing again in 2012, using only his left arm.
