Hope he will try mma soon, if dana put some millions.
Any relation to Rob? They're both heavyweights
Just become two times gold olympist (plus a bronze medal)
8x world champ
26 years old
I hate this guy with a passion. He's the absolute worst. If you compared his judo style to mma, it would pretty much would be as boring as lay and pray. He sucks on 1000 different levels. Takes zero risks, boring as shit. I pray he does mma just so somebody punchers him right in the face.
Didn't the French Judo community say they would ban anyone who trained MMA? I doubt he is going into MMA.
Yes judo is boring with the gi, but teddy riner is a monster.
Put him against overeem he will make some gaspacho sauce
He said he wants nw challenges, i think he dnt give a fck about the federation. He is the federation himself lmao.
I think he have something behind the head, and it will be mma
It'd be interesting.....obviously judo is more technique and grip vs wrestling aggression.....and the guy seems to wear his emotions on his sleeve. Makes you wonder how flustered he'd get in a match. Also.....
can he bring his gi
but can he drop heavyweights with body shots?
I didn't say judo was boring. I said Teddy is boring. I love judo. I've been doing judo for 12 years. There are plenty of exciting gi wearing judokas, illiadas, Ono, Nomura. He's pretty much a judo Lesnar, just way bigger than almost all of his opponents, with way less skill. He sucks! Sucks!
Judo is not a big thing in usa, even more in the hw div.
Look what did ishii against rampage, so imagine riner against ben rothwell.
Teddy riner is above the hw weight limit, he will cut the weight lol
I doubt he'll ever go to MMA...seems pretty against it. Especially as long as the French Judo federation keeps up their attack on MMA.
This is the GOAT
You're forgetting that Teddy sucks.
He dnt sucks cmon he made some ippon today, he is not the more technical but they all boring. Judo is boring to be fair, olympic games should put some bjj it will be more fun.
But teddy riner in mma will be a monster imo, really he is so mean even tho he is a teddy bear.
He have that dark side inside him like jon jones, he could hurt the all hw div
Teddy Riner sucks ass. He would get destroyed in seconds by any top 20 heavyweight.
We got u i think... Yeah u dnt like him ok lol
I would be way more excited about Kayla Harrison switching to mma. And that's a real possibility. Her style totally fits mma as well.
