    A-Level athletes ALWAYS win.

    Problem is, the term only exists in the imagination of those who want it to exist.

    Don't forget Tatiana Suarez, who is probably going to be champ soon.

    Well he slept the BW champ in 1 round. That's good enough for him to be considered honorary BW champ (especially since the "real" one was stripped).

    You Ese!
    Haha "So much for the UFC".

    EDIT: From Wikipedia
    It was real. If you don't follow fighting, Puder had Angle locked in the Kimura, or keylock as Tazz called it, although Tazz didn't let on the move was fully executed. Not only was Angle not getting out of the move, but most MMA fighters would have tapped already. Angle couldn't tap for obvious reasons. The ref counted a three even though Puder's shoulders weren't fully down, trying to end the thing, because the reality was Angle would have been in surgery had it gone a few seconds longer or had Puder not given up the hold. ― Dave Meltzer

    What a load of crock.

    Its definitely a bonus but Rhonda's striking was a good example that being an Olympic level athlete doesn't solve everything.

    He's 1-0 at bantanweight in the UFC with a win over Dustin kimura

    If anyone is honorary BW champ it's moraes, he actually fights in the division

    "Olympic level wrestlers taking over the UFC" seems more appropriate.
