    My God I was just watching some Sara McMann fights on Fightpass and this girl is suppose to be and claims to be a an Olympic wrestler. She is the first American woman in history to receive a silver medal in Olympic wrestling.

    Well thats nice because she has no clue how to do a takedown, its embarrassing to watch. This just sums up womens MMA, Silver medal wrestler but actually can't take anyone down and takedowns always stuffed and the shots are so slow and amateurish, like a kid falling on your legs while your standing watching it.

    Sorry but you just can't take it seriously, Ronda is skillful but the comp is amateur and probably lower than that. Holm will be the next hype KO power, when her fights in UFC went to split decision and unanimous decision and her power was not even close to nothing. UFC Hype machine Zzzzzz

    She would still whip your ass in a wrestling match single handedly.

    She is a very good high level wrestler. There have been shit MMA wrestlers who have competed at very high level. NCAA champ Munoz first comes to mind and Romero wasn't really taking anyone down before Taverez fight in his fights in UFC either.

    I watched her in person major a college wrestler from Lehigh by 9 pts at the Penn State Open 15 years ago. Trust me she would beat many people on this forum.

    Women wrestling is in the same situation with WMMA.
    Yoshida and Icho are special athletes and the others are not so good.

    It really hasn't transitioned to mma well at all, and she doesn't seem to have that fighter mentality.

    To be honest womens olympic wrestling is even worse than womens MMA. the people she beat were probably "show up at the door and try it" types. And yeah I know a fair bit about wrestling, its very poor talent pool.

    I am pretty pretty sure female freestyle talent pool is WAY deeper than female MMA talent pool by the size of the solar system.

    Seriously? She major decisioned a male D1 wrestler at the same weight class? I've always acknowledged her wrestling credentials but if she did that, she's a true phenom.

    I will say it's alarming noting that Sara is an Olympic silver medalist but can hardly hit a takedown, however as someone already mentioned Mark Munoz is a very good wrestler that had a hard time transitioning his wrestling skills to MMA yet he's coaching a lot of high level MMA fighters in wrestling. Sometimes your skills don't translate perfectly in a fight, and it's down to the person to either adjust or fall into oblivion.
