How do you figure? I think receivers and DBs would make the best all around fighters.
Linemen are way too fat and slow (hand speed) and while most running backs are pound for pound among the strongest players on the team they are usually too short to make it in the LHW or heavyweight class.
Think about it receivers and defensive backs are fast (fastest people on a team) good cardio (can’t say that about other players) good physical strength and perfect body type for MMA (lean and muscular).
Linebacker is the only other position I see having natural potential for MMA.
