    Tired of all this bullshit talk about supposed "A level Athletes" from NFL,NBA or WWE being able to come over and smash the UFC HW Roster with no training as UFC fighters are weak couch potatoes . They use Brock Lesnar as evidence for this but they ignore that:
    A) Brock lesnar has a wrestling pedigree that 95% of WWE guys and NFL guys lack.
    B) Has years of MMA training and experience that WWE guys lack
    C) Was a better athlete than the majority of WWE and NFL guys, when i say athlete I don't mean he did better in football or had better game skills I mean he put up numbers that puts most to shame. How many Defensive tackles run a 40 yard dash in less than 4.7 secounds, have a 35 inch vertical, standing long jump 10 feet and bench press 600 pounds?

    With all that he did reasonably well against washed up fighters but as soon as he faced a top tier opponent, he was exposed and destroyed. Also the hardest opponent for these "athletic freaks" would be USADA and just as Lesnar was they would be impaled to the wall or shrivel up into nothingness.

    Another Athletic Freak in MMA who would defeat 99% of WWE,NFL,NBA guys is Bob sapp.
    320 pounds shredded while the majority of NFL guys at the same weight look like corndog munchers also ran a 40 yard dash in 4.8 secounds. Sapp then bulked to 350 pounds while still being leaner than the average Defensive lineman actually trained for MMA and his best accomplishment in the sport was almost beating big nog. Then he lost to every noname fighter he fought, miserably.

    Sapp sucks but he still would crush any human who doesn't train.

    I don't think anyone considers WWE guys A-level athletes...

    Take Khalil Mack, train he for 2 years in mma and he'd smash Brock and any other non top tier HW.

    JJ Watt or LeBron Jerms could be UFC HW champ with 2 weeks of TKD classes and watching a tape of UFC 1.

    A level athletes, the guy in yellow is Raphael Silva at 370 pound bodyweight, Teddy Riner at his left side is 310. None of these guys are below 300 pounds...

    Bob Sapp beat Ernesto Hoost twice...

    That's one of the K-1 GOATs btw.

    TWICE.

    Modern MMA is a secondary skill sport and wrestling is part of it. Takes time.

    Biased Ref who allowed Sapp to cheat. If Ernesto was allowed to bring a knife into the ring and he won via spilling Sapps blood on the floor would you count that as a win aswell?

    read the WWE threads and many others. People have claimed many times that guys like Lebron James, Chandler Jones, JJ.Watt, Undertaker even ronaldo can defeat the HW division with 3 months training.

    Just yesterday Sherdog had a 6 page thread that a pro-boxer would not adjust well to MMA even with a few years of training grappling unless they have trained grappling since their adolescence.

    Now Sherdog is telling me A-level football players can close the gap with a few months or less than 2 years of training?

    {<huh}
