With the UFC only becoming a true avenue for mainstream talent recently, a lot of past tough guys in pro-wrestling almost make you think “what if” in a different universe, they had become MMA talent instead. Here is a personal list of 5 I can think of, off the top of my head, who I believe would have had great success! in the UFC.
Anyone that is an Olympic Gold Medalist is instant contender for UFC gold. Henry Cejudo comes to mind as hopefully, the future man to dethrone Demetrious Johnson. Out wrestled Lesnar. What’s that tell you?
Fingers were as big as two or three of yours. Heaviest hands in world history. Harley Race vs Chuck Liddell. I would jizz
I did this article thinking of this man. I think he could be the toughest ever. 6’10”, looks like the devil, and choked out Angle on an airplane for fucking with Vince.
Miami Gator powerhouse, Samoan which = tough, intensity and unwillingness to yield and desire to be the best. He puts the training time in and I could see him being a beast.
Son of Stu, amateur wrestling champion, incredible strength and noted 1 punch knockout power.
Haku, Jim Duggan Jerry Saggs, Goldberg,
People who would have died:
Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan, Triple H, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold unless he was allowed to compete in the women division, which is a natural fit for him.
