    No one knows. It's a different ball game when you get punched in the face. Probably better than CM Punk.

    Easily top 10 HW in UFC after 2 years.

    Shit, we got Mitrione as #13 in UFC and Rothwell as #4

    Every UFC event announces their fighters in feet / inches, as well as pounds. I agree it is dumb, but if you watch fights you should have a pretty good understanding of the imperial measurements.

    I'm Canadian, and we officially use the metric system like everywhere else (except the US). , but everyone still will tell you their height / weight in feet / inches / pounds.

    3 months in his training his family would get kidnapped by Fédération Française de Judo, they'll get a high class escort he slept with to release his dick pics and a WADA official to tamper with his most recent drug test so he'd test positive and be banned from all sporting competitions.

    French Judo Federation = Church of Scientology when it comes to protecting their own, especially their biggest and brightest star. They'd sooner see him destroyed than switch to MMA.

    He's got no interest in MMA and even if he did there's no guarantees.

    Look at Satoshi Ishii he's a HW Judo Olympic gold medalist and hasn't been a world beater in MMA even though he's been pretty dedicated.

    And just for fun here's Ishii Vs Riner.

    He would do just like Ronda - crumble as soon as he would be hit in the face by a competent striker.

    We've talked about him a lot before. Some people could make the transition, some couldn't. Probably most couldn't. The issue comes from the Judo federation being a colossal bag of self perpetuating dicks and the fact that he gets paid well already. If he was living in his car I'm sure he would have found his way to MMA by now.

    Sure get thrown literally 1,000x in your Judo career, think you're tough, get punched in the face once, find a purple pillow.
