You always hear that so and so is the best collegiate wrestler in MMA. Matter of fact this phrase gets thrown around a lot.

SO who actually is the top 5 collegiate wrestlers in MMA today?

Dave Shultz
Jake Rosholt
Mark Coleman
Josh Koscheck
Cole Konrad
Kevin Randleman
Chael Sonnen

Cormier (best amateur)

These all sound about right.

Watch out for Lance Palmer. 4X All American from Ohio State. Recently moved to Sacramento, CA to start his MMA career with Team Alpha Male.

Thanks for coming through on this guys. Now when I hear an announcer say so and so was one of the best collegiate wrestlers I can look at these lists to see if the announcer is just blowing smoke or actually knows what he is talking about.

Shane Roller?

Duke Roufus - Shane Roller?

3-time All American for Oklahoma State.


Lance Palmer is BADASS!

Phil Davis was a national champ.
