Wrestlers in UFC
 
We all remember big bad Brock reaking havoc in the he div, but what other wrestlers.do you guys think could potentially be champion mma fighters?

I think John Cena and mark Henry would be hard to handle due to pure strength and power, and of course I would love to se bobby Lashley fight in the UFC hw division.

The two sports have so much in common I think they could both gain from a little more intermingling of the superstars. Bob sapp would have been awesome in wwe, and does anyone think that stone cold in his heyday would have run the table in UFC against the likes of ken shamrock.

The stone cold stunner doesn't work in MMA.

Brock excelled because he happened to be a HW wrestling NATIONAL CHAMP.

Don't be a weirdo.

That makes sense about the stunner but I think he would have excelled due to how badass he was at the time.

Only one man can successfully cross over....

I agree regal would hAve been awesome I'm mma when he was younger.
I'm not sure he could have ever taken the belt, but a solid guy for sure. It would be nice to see some of the more intricate slams and locks used in the UFC.

He was also wwe champion.

I don't know about Regal, I think as a HW he would get crushed.

I know Haku could have beaten Royce Gracie and ended MMA, as their are stories of him being a tough mean SOB that liked to rip guys noses off in bar fights.

Danny Hodge could have been the LW or FW version of Brock Lesnar he was an Olympian level boxer and wrestler and at 70+ I think he could still take 90% of this forum.


and he liked that apple.

Before wrestling was televised and it was a carnival trick they used to have these guys called "hookers" that would just f up the ring patrons.



Kane actually has some solid MMA skills, and you can find a number of Japanese wrestlers that could have transitioned to MMA.

And then you have a number of wrestlers Shelton Benjamin, Curt Hennig, Kurt Angle, Charlie Haas, Dolph Ziggler etc etc etc.

Daniel Bryan would tap Ben Henderson.

Low-ki (Ring of Honour) had some pretty awesome kicks, Yoshihiro Tajiri too. Sharp and stiff.
