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.
Any athlete with good-correct training can compete if they are focused. They might not be the best fighter. Pro Wrestlers are just as much atheletes as MMA fighters, soccer players, football players...the list goes on. All it comes down to is heart, strength and technique. Training can do wonders for anyone. Need help losing weight, get a personal trainer, and boom start to see results.
