    Ngganou could have been a tight end or defensive end and he didn't beat Stipe.

    If he stopped eating snacks I think he would dominate.

    You sound way more knowledgeable than the average MMA fan, you know what I’m talking about.

    Sumo wrestling did a lot for Machida when it comes down to defending takedowns. It is a part of fighting.

    Nobody who is a top ten fighter in MMA is F level. Just because y6ou are an uncoordinated couch potato does not mean MMA fighters are either.

    I wonder if he thinks the same after someone tells him that MMA fighters don't get to stop every 10 seconds and have a break?

    If this fight were to happen, it would look like Cain vs Brock. The only way that football player knows how to use his size is tackling. Even Brock at least knew how to wrestle. And he still got wrecked.

    It's really annoying when guys who don't fight really think they can just jump in and beat the best.

    Also, people keep bringing up Brock like some unskilled fighter as if the guy didn't spend his entire life wrestling.

    Then he'll realize the pay isn't worth the beating. (Probably said already but I ain't going through all the pages.)

    1) it is .. as is cardio,muscle endurance etc areas nfl guys are generaly very weak in

    2)probably much worse than the adverage 300lb man who works out as hes geared for short bursts of power not long drawn out sessions

    3) as in the same way anyone else would man an athlete that is both fast and explosive but can last
    Yes both are niche sports on opposite ends of the atheltic spectrum ....nfl guys are there on the extreme of one end with short bust tire out fast end like sprinters ,sumo , sttongmen and power lifters
    Marathon guys are on the other end ....not terribly explosive but able to work for amazing displays of sheer muscle emdurance and cardio etc.

    Brock had a legit wrestling background.

    A massive weight advantage

    Plus Randy was ancient.

    If you think an athlete steps into any combat sport and automatically dominates you’re wrong.

    How will he handle taking a punch/ kick mentally?

    Can he adapt to a completely different type of movement? Does he have any aptitude for striking or grappling?

    Too many questions to just assume an NFL guy would be any good.

    Harrison weighs 350lbs+

    He would have to chop off both legs to come in at 266lbs. Just cause you're big doesn't mean you're guaranteed to win a fight.

    Best tells the mods to shut down this thread. Once you’ve responded it’s game over.

    Any other threads you’ve posted in today? Just so I know not to go into them because you’ve already responded

    1. Most NFL guys are not very weak in cardio. They run up and down the field at full speed all day long. Most 340 lb NFL lineman are weak in cardio compared to much smaller athletes, but not relative to their superheavyweight peers.

    2. You are delusional if you think NFL linemen have poor cardio compared to the average 300lber who works out.
