    He wouldn't have a chance in the UFC.
    He didn't assault his GF

    Probably better than those pansies in the NFL that wear padding and helmets.

    LOL. They probably still have training wheels on their bikes.

    Nah just kidding mate they don’t do cardio because they only go for 10 seconds before resuming play in 10 minutes.

    If he could use his range then he'd be lethal (assuming he was fully trained and started mma instead of NBA).

    No one would get passed his jab, except Bruce Lee of course.

    Well, very well. If he can defend the TD, GOAT!

    You mean Hong Man Choi?
    I thought we covered this before.


    Oh wait....
    I read the title as Korean Abdul Jabbar

    Carry on!

    Probably the same as Semmy. Both would have been MMA goats if they focused their training on it, and if there was no upper weightlimit.

    Very good comparison. That name brings back memories of better days, when Semi was a K1 wreaking machine for a good period around 08. He definitely made the most of his attributes and made the elite guys look average.

    I don’t know the answer to that question but I did enjoy his movie Rush Hour.

    Semmy tried for years to maximize his game and just couldn’t get it done in mma.

    If they didn’t wear helmets and pads, there would be deaths every single game.

    There’s a reason why Brock was able to come to the UFC and win the title in like 3 fights. But failed miserably at his attempt at the NFL

    I dislike all sports except combat really. Soccer, I mean football is just as boring as hand egg and baseball. Don't kid yourselves.

    I don't think he was built to be a fighter.

    Way too tall to make 265 at a sufficiently robust build to stop himself from getting molested by people like Blaydes.
