    Well we all know wrestlers make the best fighters so this shouldn't be that much of a shock.

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...t-29-0-in-MMA/

    Also remarkable is the record of the four members of the 2008 US Olympic Freestyle Wrestling Team that went on to compete in MMA. Complete team roster was:

    163 lbs. Ben Askren
    185 lbs. Andy Hrovat
    211.5 lbs. Daniel Cormier
    264.5 lbs. Steve Mocco

    Of the six members of the men's fs team, four went on to fight in MMA, and to date, not a single one has lost ever, compiling a perfect record of 29-0 in the sport:
    Cejudo (4-0)
    Askren (11-0)
    Cormier (12-0)
    Mocco (2-0)
