    1. Who is more dominant champ in Greco and likely would win head-to-head?
    2. Who potentially would do better in MMA?

    Gotta go with Karelin. The time he went without a single point against him was insane.

    Karelin is the Greco GOAT

    Didn't lose in like 15 years, three straight Olympic golds, didn't even give up a point in like 10 straight years.

    Plus Rulon Garner beat him on a hand slip

    Karelin. I went "Who?" in my head when I read that second name.

    How the fuck is this even a question? Karelin and it's not even close. It's like asking who's better between Jordan and Kobe. Damn casuals.

    Karelin and it's not even close. No one has even come close to the wrestling accolades of Alexander Karelin, period.

    Dominant: You can't get more dominant than Karelin.

    Now level of competition is a different thing.

    Mijain Lopez has a peer in Kayaalp - Kayaalp beats him in worlds, Lopez wins in the olympics. You can argue that this is a more competitive era (which it is), but domination is domination

    Karelin had no peers during his peak, he was dominant at both worlds and the olympics for like 10 years. Then he got old and the homie Gardner upset him

    Lopez is the better wrestler though, and I think as good of an athlete, if not better. He'd do better at MMA, peak for peak

    Let's not pretend Gardner was a better wrestler or won due to anything other than a technicality at best.

    Karelin ruled in a golden era, Lopez, as good as he is, is the best of the worst, really

    Sherdog is torn: Karelinin is a legend around here but he lacks serious blacksplosivity.......owing to the blacksplosive factor, Im guessing Sherdog will go with Lopez.

    I don't really follow wrestling, but I guess athletes improve over time.
