Your kidding right?

Mma is a whole different world than proffesional wrestling. It's different when you are REALLY getting punched and kicked in the head. The giant would be brought down quick.

Hmm if Andre was brought into MMA early.. with his size and naturally freakish strength he would easily be all but the most elite fighters.Though his MMA carear would have been alot shorter then his wrestling carear was because of his sickness MMA being real would have put alot more stress on his body.

Andre would kill anyone if he had the proper training.

I don't think so. I saw a documentary on him. It was called "Heart of a Giant" and they said some pretty amazing things about him. Picking up cars and tipping them over and how he almost drowned two professional wrestlers in the pacific ocean in Japan when he thought they were making fun of him. Comparing him to Giant Silva is unfair I think.

A young Andre was not the same Andre that most wrestling fans remember from the 80s. Andre in his 20s was really mobile and agile, he was able to jump off the top rope, do pretty impressive drop kicks, and was pretty fast, ect. He was in no way like Giant Silva. If he had some proper training who knows? But he would have had to have fought as a Super HW.

Picking up cars doesn't mean he can fight. I'm pretty sure using a car in MMA is illegal.

True.
I am just saying he was freakishly strong, even for a 7 footer. But he was also a tremendous athlete when he was younger. Did you know he was offered a contract my the Washington Redskins?
