I guess by your logic, Bobby Lashley would've wrecked anybody that would even sign the contract and could go for hours on end. Say for example your in a pro wrestling match and your gonna throw the guy, he is gonna assist you in the throw so neither guy will get injured ie. less work. That crap ain't happening in a real fight, your using all your strength to throw a guy that doesn't want to get thrown. Its so different its not even funny.

Really? 10 pages of discussion for this troll thread and it's still in the UFC section? Lame.

This is a bit silly. Yes I see your point, but Pro Wrestlers are in amazing shape, some wrestle everyday. Not saying they have better cardio than MMA fighters, but to write them off is silly

No. They don't. That's the sad part, and I feel for Hex because I've come across that same stuff so many times. The average person still thinks the "Real World (TM)" is more real than the real world, and "Wrestling" is more real than wrestling or MMA. You can show them the difference all you want, they'll just give you a patronizing smile about your crazy conspiracy theories.

Pro wrestling is stupid, not a single one of those guys could compete in real fighting except those with strong amateur wrestling backgrounds (Lesnar, Angle, Iron Sheikh, Backlund etc. ) , and not all of those would be good either (like Lashley). It's actually kinda sad how it ruins so many real and true athletes with pressure for steroids, painkillers and over the top greed and trashtalk given to them as values instead of the actual values of true martial arts and competition.

Stomping and jumping around with un-resisting opponents doesn't show cardio or any sort of remotely applicable skill at anything. My kid brothers and I used to do it for entire days without getting tired. It's like a slow, sloppy dance, nothing more.

Throwing real strikes and grappling full strength against another guy trying to hurt you with everything he's got, on the other hand, gets you wheezing in 2 mins just from the adrenaline dump. It's the difference between race walking for 3 hours and a full blaze sprint at 100% for 60 seconds.

It's not that we can't appreciate the differences in the product, it's that half the world can't seem to, and like Hex said it's insulting to anyone who actually trains or follows the real thing. I don't let it get under my skin and just smile and play along usually, but to have a bunch of guys on a forum for MMA not get it is surprising.

One correction. He won the gold medal with a broken freakin' neck. And I'm pretty sure winning a gold medal qualifies as a strong amateur wrestling background.
