There is some quality trolling going on in this thread
Golf is probably the most difficult sport to reach the pinnacle in of all sports.
MMA not so much.
Physically however, IDK if athleticism is a huge factor in golf at all. It is part of it, but a small part.
Literally 99% of NBA,NFL,MLB athletes all play golf the majority have lessons,coaches and are elite athletes and yet none have ever crossed over into professional golf (besides a couple one-offs)
mcgregor vs mcilroy next in a mixed rules bout (golf clubs allowed)
TS is clearly on point. The sports require similar levels of athleticism. I don't believe the PGA has ever had a champion as old as Couture was. But frankly, golf requires far, far more skill.
This thread makes me miss Golf so much, I used to play it often about 8 years ago, it was fun and relaxing at the same time. I find Golf really boring to watch, but if you actually play it then its fun and enjoyable.
Randy couture was on TRT lmfao ......FACT
It' the only reason he was even competitive that long......horrible choice in example TS.
Fuck , the way they swing those clubs is VERY similar to the method I've seen some guys use to swing fists. And the grit of golfers is legendary.
Also, salespeople tend to peak in that age range as well. And some of those guys are real animals. Basically MMA fighters without the fighting, right?
Fighting is COMPLETELY different from ball sports comparisons are useless and often very wrong......cough cough.....
None of these guys have been punched in the has or kicked in the head by a professional.......
Tiger woods,mickeldon,happy fucking Gilmore all get absolutely fucking wrecked in an mma fight .....like seriously it's fucking amazing someone would think otherwise.
Just because LeBron James is good at basketball doesn't make him a proven great at EVERYTHING.
Assuming he would just pick up golf or MMA as easily or as fast as he did basketball is overwhelmingly unintelligent.There are guys who have excelled at multiple sports but it's very rare.
Especially MMA it's not the same AT ALL .
I have landed blows on peoples faces, I have grappled with bums in the street. I have NEVER sunk an eagle.
Also you simplify the terrain of MMA in comparison to golf. Each golf course has it's challenges, and match up to different people's strengths. The human body is the terrain in MMA. Dealing with peoples length, timing, power, technical skills and even trash talk are all variables that come into play and have to be navigated and game planned for. Quit selling MMA short.
You put Phil Mickelson in right now on a series of TUF straw weight women I think he emerges at the top even without training. If you disagree, you're an imbecile.
I have driven a perfect shot at the driving range,I have sunk a hole in one at mini golf,I've never landed a single strike or takedown on a ranked professional mixed martial artist.
TS is right. I trained with several UFC fighters throughout my life and never had an issue with them grappling or sparring. Despite most of them being LHW and me at WW.
I got into golfing later and sometimes roll around with the old dudes. Their old man strength is crazy because of years gripping a club. They shut me down pretty easily despite being 20+ years older, up to 50 lbs lighter, and never having a minute of BJJ training in their lives.
Both 36, both the greatest
This thread reminds me of the time me and a couple of other Sherdoggers joined a golf forum and started making MMA-related posts, like "Vijay would be the UFC HW champ with 3 months of TDD training."
More of a jumping around type of athleticism.. Less wear on the knees required.
Kinda curious how the older more mature golf regulars would react to some low-brow Sherdog trolling.
Mostly with perplexity.
