    Just ,b/c your one of the best sport doesn't mean you'll be good at another sport.Michael Jordan is one of the greatest Bascketball players ever ,but that didn't mean he could play baseball.

    he would get creamed, if he played football for a year at ANY position it would ruin his mma career, he could kick any of their asses but if he got tackled he would get his bones crushed.

    lol that is the stupidist thing i have heard in a while, 6 foot 233 pounds and not that much muscle, he rules at mma, but he would just get creamed over and over again, he couldnt even compete at collage level and his fighting isnt allowed in football he would just have huge guys takle him over and over again.

    Thomas is small for a middle linebacker, outside linebackers usually go around 230 middle lbs go about 250.

    I think this is a MMA forum and we are to talk about MMA here. Speculating about cross platform sporting is a diffrent sight. Even the new comercial with Matt Hughes makes fun of this stuff.

    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.

    Zach Thomas is 5-10 225 and hes a HOF LB

    not many if any LBs are 6'5 250+, matter of fact 6' 230 is a solid size for a LB.

    STRAIGHT UP...IM A HUGE FOOTBALL FAN AND I COULDNT NAME ONE LB THATS 6'5 250 +.. THATS JUST INSANE...FEDOR IS PRIME LINEBACKER MATERIAL...I PLAYED LINEBACKER FROM WHEN I WAS 8 TO THE END OF MY HIGHSKOOL YEARS...IM 6'0 AND BACK THEN I WHEIGHED ABOUT 225...AND I SMASHED PEOPLE...THERE ARE NO LINEBACKERS THAT SIZE..MOST AREA ABOUT THE SIZE OF FEDOR MAYBE A LITTLE TALLER BUT AROUND THAT SIZE..FEDOR IS PERFECT FOR MIDDLE LINEBACKER...

Also, he has no football background so he would have to learn everything. He would probably go down as the second coming of Brock Lesnar expect worse. Lesnar is built like a football and has the expierence and he still didnt make it. So I dont think Fedor could cut it in the NFL either.
