But the larger point that eludes you is this.

But one thing is pretty fucking clear. Wrestlers become elite MMA fighters and MMA champions a lot more regularly than non-wrestlers.

What you should not menstruate too heavily over is whether someone was a 2 time NCAA Champion or a guy that came in 3rd and 5th in the country for 2 years, or whatever. At that level, the margins of victory are so small, and the one that is the most likely to succeed in MMA is not necessarily the one with the better wrestling pedigree, but the one that has the most adaptable style to MMA.

Great post, will cease menstruation.

Adudeapart - Manhoef's striking can't really be described as simply "power." Its more or less a form of population control.

I am Carlos Condit's most reasonable fanboy.

This is a ridiculous post, nothing but trolling.
