    Strong wrestling base, big guy and his athleticism is way above the HW MMA norm.Dont expect him to win titles or anything but he should be solid.

    They should make this a 16-man HWGP, adding:

    Jack Swagger
    Ken Shamrock (Swagger's first fight)
    Bobby Lashley
    Cheick Kongo
    Sergei Kharitonov
    Justin Wren
    Oli Thompson
    And they should've recruited Mirko Cro Cop

    Sounds like he's Lashley but could go further in mma by doing only this sport.

    Similar names in WWE, both have wrestling backgrounds.

    CM Punk should go to Bellator, its a better fit for him.

    Surprised they didnt push to get Cro Cop in their tournament. He would have been perfect for that tournament.

    He's a legit wrestler, but at 35years of age and with little MMA training how much else has/can he pick up in terms of striking etc that could stand him in good stead vs meaningful competition?

    A few years back he could of been a bit of a force?

    I feel he will be matched carefully

    Be good to see him fight Lashley

    Lashley vs Hager would love to see that. Hager is a legit wrestler as well.

    I don't know about that. Contrary to popular belief Brock Lesnar has a much better MMA wrestling then amateur.
    And Cain Velasquez was a fantastic amateur wrestler. And in the time He was competing It was one of the best time periods
    for heavyweights in amateur wrestling.
