    if Tyrone Sping were able to throw strikes like Badr Hari does would his striking be good enough to make it into mma?

    Wtf is wrong with you. Spong is a much better technical fighter than Hari. Overeem koed Hari stiff but couldn't do shit against Spong when Reem was like 40 lbs heavier and almost got in trouble himself against him.
    If Spong had converted to mma early he would've been the undisputed goat and he would've crushed Jones.

    He would first have to know how to wrestle and grapple to do all of what you claimed at any weight.

    Spong is a good striker but MMA is more than just striking.

    Spong is the much more diverse fighter than Hari, but both are top of the line. Well Hari was. Look at his last fight. He is obviously juiced out of his mind and has regressed massively in his technical ability.

    He's an elite striker. Look what Conor has accomplished with just good striking and a shitty groundgame.

    Overeem got destroyed when he fought Badr after they both had some time off. Badr had fought Aerts, Zimmerman and Remy literally like 3 weeks before fighting Overeem the first time

    you do know Alistair fought in kickboxing before he competed in MMA? And again, he got crushed in the rematch and would again if they fought whether Alistair was juiced up or not.
