    What are some examples of fighters who either competed against each other in college wrestling or were teammates?

    And also who won?

    Mark Kerr beat Couture in the NCAA finals back in the day.

    He's not active anymore but former Bellator champ Cole Konrad beat Cain a few times in college.

    Rashad and Maynard were on the same MSU team and were even roommates at one point.

    It still makes me sad that Konrad ended up wasting away in Bellator. I felt like he could have at least been a decent fighter in the UFC

    King Mo and Big Rigg were roommates. :D

    They used to watch PRIDE together. Johnny talked about it in an interview.

    Cole Konrad and Steve Mocco wrestled each other several times in college, including at least once in the NCAA finals. They were big time rivals. I think Konrad won most of their meetings, but I could be wrong.

    Bubba Jenkins beat Lance Palmer, Darrion Caldwell, and Michael Chandler in college. Not an MMA fighter, but Jenkins also holds a win over Jordan Burroughs in college.

    BloodyElbow has a good series on the top 20 wrestling matches between MMA fighters. Can't remember the title of it though. I think Mike Riordan writes them.
