Men who would have rocked the mma world

In this thread discuss guys who you think would have done well in mma but for one reason or another never got the chance to train for it and compete.

My vote go to andy hug. this man had faster more powerful kicks than any one i have ever seen before. I think many fighters would have fallen to his ax kick. Unfortunately andy died of leukemia at age 35.

the material speaks for itself

2:40 shows you just how fast and devastating his ax kick was

Rip hug

Easy pick for me would have been Kurt Angle.

Olympic gold medal winning wrestler he could have done great if not for his neck and drug issues.

If he could learn some TDD as well as Mirko did, then he could have had a similar mma legacy. RIP

Kurt Angle, spot on. If it weren't for the broken neck and the massive drug abuse, he could have gone far in mma 6 years ago.

This and on the topic of WWE wrestlers who "could" have made it or could possibly make the transition, Jack Swagger and Shelton Benjamin are well decorated wrestlers and incredible athletes.

I'll say Rocky Marciano. His chin was unquestionable as was his knock out power. He wrestled in high school as well so he potentially could defend the shot. At 185 he would have put heads in the stands with 4oz gloves on. Alas, he'll have to settle for being the only unbeaten hw champion in boxing history...

Big 2nd on Andy Hug.

Rocky Marciano was a bull, as in he liked to plant his weight and swing for the fences, IIRC. So, he would have been a beast in MMA if he had good TDD.

Chuck Norris, not joking either, Norris is extremely accomplished in kickboxing, Karate and Tae Kwon Do and was also one of the first Americans to begin training in BJJ with the Gracie's even before UFC 1.
