    AAU Champion in 1971.
    Coach for USA Wrestling in 1972.


    Here is some examples of his aggression.





    He is a proud Persian muslim. He does not like:
    1) Europeans who resemble Alexander the Great.
    2) East Asians who resemble Ghengis Khan.
    3) Hulk Hogan.
    4) Kurt Angle.

    The biggest 'what if' when it comes to professional wrestlers and MMA is Kurt Angle.

    His opponents would display humility after the fight from having a broken vertebra

    He's an A level athlete so I'm sure he would be champ in less than a year.

    Prime sheik like pre-pro wrestler sheik was an A level athlete. If mma existed in time where that version of the sheik existed, I'm sure he would've excelled on some level. He was a pretty dedicated dude early on from what picked up from his documentary.

    The other poster mentioning angle is a solid point. If ever a "what if" existed it's got to be Kurt.

    just my opinion, I know he was a great wrestler, ( not sure of his accolades but was very accomplished in Iran in wrestling) I hated him growing up because of his gimmick, but after reading about him and his trials in life, I became a fan, maybe thats what makes me think he would dominate, but I also took in consideration of him being an all around tough and intellegent guy
