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.
Ya Lewis, Bruschi, and Seau are around that mark.. but Arrington is a DE converted to LB of course hes gonna be bigger
most LBs, even the Top LBs in the NFL right now are not that big 250 is about as big as they get
Mike Peterson is 6-1 235, Derrick Brooks is 6-0 235, Will Witherspoon is 6-1 234, Jonathan Vilma is 6-1 230
Fedor has the size, learning football isnt that hard I wouldnt count him out just cuz he doesnt know anything about football... he has the tools he can learn, there are TONS of football players in the NFL that get by on there athletism and not there insticts.. there not usually pro bowlers but they still get paid.
