Stephen Neal (former Pro Bowl offensive lineman for Patriots) was the only man to defeat Brock Lesnar in the 1999 NCAAs.
The UFC heavyweight division would be stacked through the roof if the NFL talent pool fought competitively.
Ya I do the same thing with my casual fan friends, especially because most of them are football fans. Stephen Neal is a great example, he would have been HW champ in no time if he chose UFC over NFL. But who would do that when you probably make 10x as much in the NFL.
