He has got a very explosive double-leg takedown, which he used extensivly in college. Could translate well to MMA
As far as I can recall, he didn't seem to gas at the end of matchs, as is the custom of many of the "muscle head" HWTS.
One thing i question is if he will be able to get down to 265, in the WWE he looked much bigger than 265. Plus, didn't he have some kind of shoulder injury in the WWE that forced him to quit?
kinda makes him sound like a mark kerr part 2
