    Strong, explosive, and tenacious, Charles Barkley dominated front court in his prime years despite being an undersized big man in the NBA. With a unique combination of skills, physicality, and grit, Barkley displayed incredible feats on the floor, cementing himself as a hall of famer in one of the most competitive sports in the world.

    With an unassuming physique not unlike that of premier heavyweight champions like Fedor Emelianenko and Cain Velasquez plus 30-40 pounds of extra muscle, a prime Barkley would have surely taken the current heavyweight division by storm with 1-2 years of boxing and wrestling training.

    At 4:15, Barkley masterfully slips a power jab (which would have KO'd many heavyweights) from the 7'2", 350 lb Shaq and then seamlessly transitions into a take-down despite 2 other players pulling on him.

    If he was like, really good at fighting...then probably.

    Charles Barkley is a legit Boxer with a record of
    34-4 29 KO
    weighing 298 lbs

    I think he'll do pretty good when he cuts to 265

    Google it. He states it himself in his own book.

    I think he could do great, but he didn't try fighting so he has no MMA legacy.

    He was throwing guys through windows before we'd ever heard of Bas Rutten.

    If he'd have made that his lifelong career instead of basketball, he'd probably have been very scary.

    In the picture below, you can see the rock next to Lesnar, who is supposedly 6'3". He seems a little taller so the rock being 6'4" would not be far-fetched.
