Strikers converting to MMA?
The usual belief is that it's easier to convert from grappling or wrestling into MMA, but seeing top K-1 fighter Ewerton Texeira of Brazil winning his MMA debut may lead other strikers to convert to MMA, but would they be succesful?
Fighters like Cro Cop, Overeem and Maurice Smith were able to adapt using grappling and wrestling, while others like Ray Mercer and James Toney were too old. Bob Sapp and Peter Graham were just not skilled enough.
How successful can top strikers like Floyd Mayweather, The Klitschko brothers or the top K-1 fighters like Buakaw and Petrosyan be if they converted to MMA?
