Dwight Howard would be downright scary, Ben Wallace too. Ray Lewis could have been a monster.

Ben Wallace is a good one. Great athlete, his athletic ability made him a monster for an undersized(height wise) center. That and his crazy strength. He would be one scary dude to have staring across from you in a cage.

I remember former Notre Dame saftey Tom Zbikowski had an impressive fast KO in boxing. He plays for the Bears now I think and is 4-0 as a pro boxer.

I'd take him to knock out Kimbo right now.

Not strictly on topic, but who achieved the most in wrestling before entering MMA? I know there are a lot of great wrestlers in MMA but I was just wondering who would be classed as the best ones to ever enter MMA based on record or achievements in wrestling. I'm talking about college, olympic wrestling etc, not WWE.

Joe Warren was very accomplished. In college Hendricks was a 2 time National Champion, 1 time runner up and 4 time All-American. Maybe the most accomplished college wrestler in the UFC.

Matt Lindland got a silver in the Olympics as well as other awards. He could be the most accomplished.

Rey Mysterio? He seemed pretty flexible and jumpy.

Are we talking ever did MMA or people that did it for a while and/or are still doing it? Because Kevin Jackson was a Olympic gold medalist and he did MMA. He only did it from 1997 to 1998 and he went 4-2 (all wins and losses by submission). He had 3 wins that only took ~1 minute and he won UFC 14 but then lost to Frank Shamrock in 16 seconds.

None.

I'd say Kurt Angle if he was 28 and had just won an Olympic gold medal...but then he wouldn't be a WWE wrestler.
