    Default 2008 men's US freestyle team perfect 29-0 in MMA

    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:
    121 lbs. Henry Cejudo
    145.5 lbs. Doug Schwab
    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)
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    Well we all know wrestlers make the best fighters so this shouldn't be that much of a shock.
    Dude, Iím a wrestler. Iím the best wrestler in MMA. Wrestling IS, was and always has been the most dominate form of mix martial art on the planet. Thatís all there is to it. We all know it, some people want to fight it, some people want doubt it but wresters rule the MMA world. -

    Funny thing is the best of all those guys by far, Henry Cejudo, never went into MMA. He would be flyweight champ right now if he did.
