college athletics before entering the "entertainment industry" of pro wrestling,and Lesnar and Kurt Engle are perfect examples,and Engle even
won an Olympic Gold Medal with a broken neck in 1996.They also take their
lumps in the ring,with many of them sidelined with broken bones,torn legimits,etc.,so I think with the right people to train them,and the right mindset with it at least half of these "entertainers" could easily become more then able to adjust to a legit form of fighting.
So using this kind of reasoning I could say that Stunt men should become MMA Fighters because of thier athletic prowless and because many of them have trained in acrobatics and some martial arts... P.S. Stunts are "Fake" too. Yet not a sport. remember I said "Fake Sport"
Again it is comparing apples to televisons. Not the same beast. You could be the best high jumper in the world but that doesn't mean you are going to be any good in the NBA. The reasoning is the same.
