not many if any LBs are 6'5 250+, matter of fact 6' 230 is a solid size for a LB.
Im a huge Dolphins fan, and Zack Thomas is considered extermely small for a LB or a football player period. He is probably a lot stronger then Fedor, being 2 inches shorter and only 5 pounds lighter. Im pretty sure Lewis, Brushci, Seau, and Arrington(sp?) are all around the 250+ mark. LB are pretty big.
Point is Fedor wouldnt last a day in an NFL training camp. Just because he is the best MMA fighter in the world doesnt mean he could make it in other sports. Im sure his training is some of the best and toughest in the world, but the NFL is competely different and is probably just as hard. With no expierence in football and the fact he is 30, I'm still gonna have to say no he wouldnt be a good LB at all.
