I forgot to respond to this before. I agree that 8 hours is overkill, and even Rich Franklin (I think it was him) said something along the lines of "Anyone who says they train more than 4-6 hours a day is lying". MMA fighters are often elite athletes, but even then their bodies need a lot of rest to sustain their training regiment.

as you say strong wrestling but fast and heavy heavy hands, probably even more impressive than lesnar
I agree.. in fact, he's the working man's version of Lesnar if you think about it. He actually earned his way to the UFC by working in smaller circuits and proving himself.. that's something I respect a hell of a lot more than someone waltzing in from the WWE with a popular name that sells tickets, which miraculously translates into a title shot.
