New heavyweight monster

I was going through Sherdog forums for the first time and found this..
Mijaín López, a four-time world champion and an olympic gold medalist is planning to make his MMA debut sometime in 2011. The man's a monster and his only 28.

He looks like a big dark version of Hector Lombard.

His 2011 MMA debut will quickly turn into a 2011 MMA retirement if he's never set foot in a boxing gym, they can all learn from Lesnar. Then again, they probably won't get the fights Lesnar did.

When it comes to wrestling, this dude is in a different universe then Lesnar. The difference between great wrestlers in college and great wrestlers in international competitions is huge. Go watch some of Ben Askrens fights, that guys takedowns cant be stopped.

I read that his done boxing before. An athlete of his level wouldn't step into the cage without knowing his ready.

The dude looks a beast, if he learns some boxing and jui jitsu defence he could be a big player in the heavyweight division.

more good heavyweights to pack out the HW division some more is always a good thing. just hope he's as tough as he looks and gets a good stand up coach.
