lol seriously? That's the counter argument? They likely wouldn't be too muscular if they trained for an actual MMA f*ght.

The OP is right about a pretty much every one of the f*ghters he posted.

Kurt Angle: International Sports Hall of Famer. Grand Slam winner. Won a gold medal with a broken neck.

Bobby Lashley: NAIA Wrestling Champ.

Brock Lesnar: Did appear dominant in the HW division at the time.

Shelton Benjamin: Elite level Wrestler at Minnesota. Juco Natty in track and field and wrestling. Athletic enough to earn a D1 football scholarship to play football at North Carolina State.

Chad Gable: Pan American Champ. U.S. Olympic Trials Champ

Jason Jordan: Indiana Wrestling legend.

They'd fit right in with such strong wrestling platform. Even Matt Riddle lost more to weed than to anyone else lol.
Okay. Could be right, then.


I thought he was arguing based on their builds.


I don't see wrestling trumping kickboxing or jiu jitsu, but who knows, if they'd trained differently.

So he wasn't a UFC Heavyweight champ?

Your argument as to why Brock wouldn't been a great MMA f*ghter is focused on a f*ght after a recovery from a career-threatening disease and being repeatedly kicked in the area that was injured by a world class Kickboxer?

CM Punk was a flabby pro wrestler that tried to start MMA at age 37 with no real prior training.

You mean to tell me that you think any of these elite level shoot wrestlers would be submitted in 2:14 secs... in their prime?
Yes. Unless they have an elite level judo/wrestling background they getting wrestle fu*ked even if they have standup skills

But if you're being serious from what I hear all that muscle really drains your stamina in actual f*ghts, for one thing
I feel they would have to finish their opponents fast. Muscle eats up oxygen. But if athletically explosive and powerful they could do damage I a*sume.

And every person in the OP has an elite wrestling background. What are you arguing? lol and Judo? Who in MMA has an elite Judo basis for their background outside of Ronda Rousey? Stun Gun?

So did I just imagine Chael Sonnen, Rampage Jackson, Matt Hughes, Georges St. Pierre, Jon Jones, Rashad Evans, Uriah Faber, Dan Henderson, Yoel Romero, Mark Coleman, Daniel Cormier, Johnny Hendricks, Kevin Randleman and Josh Koscheck?

Brock had some success...Bobby Lashley who you posted is like 15-2 in 'MMA' - yeah, guys who were legit high level athletes with wrestling backgrounds, training for one different thing might've had a chance to dominate - that's not a stretch.

Basically a Mike Tyson approach.


But I feel like a lot of MMA f*ghters would have enough skill, quickness, and agility... to evade that quick "KO," and patiently grind them down.


I dunno.

Considering wrestlers typically shoot for takedowns, lay on people, and grind out decision victories... I'm not sure why you think this plan would be wise?

Right? People are acting like the OP is talking about just plucking a wrestler and dropping them into MMA.

This is theoretically wrestlers, in their athletic primes, deciding to pursue an MMA career and training fully. With their backgrounds and good training they'd have a good chance...

I hope not.

I'd tell you to see a doctor.


I don't watch any of this sh*t, bro. Just bored.


But I would expect skilled kickboxing to be more effective than sound grappling, generally speaking at least. But maybe I've got it wrong.

Because legs are longer and more powerful than arms.


If you can wear the dude out by evading, while still landing solid kicks, he's going to obviously be taking more damage.


I'm talking about wearing him down methodically, rather than waiting for that 'DDT'.

Perhaps. Provided they are strong enough to thwart of the first few attacks. The octagon is way bigger than a boxing ring so evading is a lot easier too. But wrestlers like to shoot. That strength around your waste would be a problem f*ghting off to avoid being taken down.

Yea the shooting would be a problem with someone that strong.

Most kickboxers have poor takedown defense. And kicks are vulnerable to shots. As MMA has evolved they have gotten better, but it's still a vulnerability to go on one-leg against a guy trying to get you on the ground. And when you have an olympic gold medalist or former National Champion on top of you... You're getting winded just trying to stand up. They're gonna lay on you, grind you down, k*ll your wind by grinding you against the cage and keeping quarters tight.

They do say (real) wrestling is the best based. Most wrestlers also have trash hands. In this era they'd get mopped if they relied too much on wrestling, hence why Brock had a short run. His striking was trash. Understandable though b/c he had a late a*s start and obviously didnt have time to become elite in the striking dept, although I think he still could have been a little better in that department if he didnt rely on being a freak athlete and an elite wrestler.

But if they were in the game in the day of Matt Hughes and Randy Couture, yeah, most of the guys on the list could have probably had a nice run just by being freak athletes and elite wrestlers.

Brock actually became HW champ, so not sure if he quite belongs on this list lol.
