    Start with gymnastics. Then learn wrestling. Then learn a bit of boxing and Jujitsu. You will be goat in no time.

    Football is. If you can play the world's premier sport at a high level then you are a freak athlete. Plus the kicking and cardio helps too. Then again if you could play football at a high level why on earth would you do MMA...

    Look at Aldo. And he wasn't even very good at football. One of the best kickers in MMA history.
