Can anyone fight MMA?

In such a short time what a joke this sport has become again. I mean pro wrestlers and NFL players come over to this sport and dominate at will. Other sports people train forever and cannot make it very high in an amateur level and in MMA a pro wrestler can watch on tv and say I could do that and become champ in a year. NOw Hershel Walker takes on some Pro MMA fighter and beats his ass after training for 3 weeks.

Of course they can! Herschal Walker is I guess a 6 degree Tak Wan Do black belt. Lesnar is and was a pro Wrestler in College and WWE, same with Bobby Lashley. And they are all outstanding athlets.

All have a very decent Martial Arts background. It's not that suprising. But that won't be the case anymore when this sport grows and developes.

Walker took 2 1/2 rounds to put away a complete can, Walker is a tremendous athlete so the fact that that combined with a martial arts background and some MMA training at the highest level is hardly a "joke". People forget that there backgrounds allow them to bypass beginner mma classes, they didn't start training part time the way a normal fighter does but instead get to jump right into the deep end with world class coaches and instructors.

I guess Bobby Lashley and Mr.Walker beating two cans means they dominate the sport....

Never mind that both Lashley and Lesnar had amazing collegitan wrestling careers and Herschal Walker already had a martial arts background.

If you're a great athlete you can excel at just about anything athletic. Let's also forget that there guys have been training in MMA, they didn't just leave their respective sports and start "dominating" as you put it.

jmariares has a little shameless behaviour in the past
mma is easy to learn, of course you need to be powerful to go pro, but even you can learn it and be more confident and learn how to defend yourself, that's why it is one of the best fighting strategies ever. if you want to train at home pm me

Many of the people we're talking about, who are coming from other sports, are likely natural athletes and very gifted to begin with.

It's like taking a certification program of some sort that is greatly abbreviated if you already have your bachelors' degree, for example.

This guy is right, that's probably why he's going to be MMA champion soon.

Okay well you obviously didn't do any research before complaining dude. Hershal Walker was already a martial artist before he even considered doing MMA. I believe it was TKD. And both Lesner and Lashley were great college wrestlers.

The count of them becoming champions, only one is champion, the other two have yet to fight any impressive fighters, and Walker's only had one fight. And Brock didn't deserve a title shot in my honest opinion, but that's another thread.

So sit down, shut up and read a little.
