    Brock really is the only guy who has come over and done well in the UFC. He became the champion and a lot of people attribute this to his athleticism and that he was a great amateur wrestler.

    Who else would be able to come to the UFC and maybe win a few fights with some training?

    I personally think guys with wrestling/athletic backgrounds would have fared well in the UFC.

    Kurt Angle (in his prime, Gold medalist and also known for being a tough guy)
    Jack Swagger (Div 1 wrestler, guys a freak athlete)
    Dolph Zigler (dudes a div 1 wrestler/ freak athlete)
    Triple H (also a freak athlete, charisma,known tough guy) (I mean in his prime obviously)

    Undertaker in his prime. Also a known tough guy with natural grappling prowess.

    People think Brock did well because he was a D1 wrestler but he is really big and strong. I would say a young Kurt could be top 15 but other then that not many. Triple H is big but I wouldn't say he's that athletic

    Jason Jordan and Chad Gable were both very successful amateur wrestlers. Maybe them.

    I agree. Taker also has serious striking. I would have liked to have seen Taker in the ufc. His 6ft10 and 320 pounds so i'm not sure how he would cut to the weight limit.

    If anyone other then Brock could win the ufc hw title I think it would be Taker. Dudes a legit tough guy and I doubt many could stand with him in his prime and Lmao, good luck taking that guy down.

    The current "talent" in the WWE is not trained in combat sports. They are more acrobatics then fighters. The old timers however would have held their own:

    Lol are you serious? You must not have seen Triple H in his hay day. I would say he was a better athlete then a lot of the Hws/lhws in the Ufc today. And the fact that he was a tough guy means he would have the intimidation factor over a lot of fighters.
