    I'm surprised Dana would let him do this.

    Not to mention that if he gets KOed by Anderson, I doubt he'd be medically cleared to grapple with Sonnen a month later. Ditto Ken if Royce were to KO him next week.

    No interest in seeing an Olympic gold medalist wrestle a WWE Luchador either, legit or worked fight.

    It was supposed to be Chael vs Rampage, but Bellator blocked it btw.

    It's a grappling match

    UFC fighters are generally allowed to do them

    Based on past history and the current capabilities of those involved, I'd be shocked if the pro wrestling match between Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio was not the most entertaining thing on the card.

    Lots of fighters participate in grappling contests while in the UFC.

    Rory was in Metamoris as were Chael and Barnett. There are more but I'm brain farting.

    Is normal.

    Ken will be fine. His fight is set so that he doesn't get any major damage on his next loss.
