We always talk about if other athletes can make the transition but are mma fighters athletic enough for other sports? Can they make the transition to a top tier sport? Or is mma a second tier sport with b-level talent? So what fighters can make it to a pro level sport with a an all star level?
Submission grappling and kickboxing
I bet Struve could make a minor league hockey team if he could stand up on skates without falling down.
Obviously any combat sport, but id assume that most of these athletes suck at stick-ball sports.
If we are talking about a fighter that could transition to another sport, I would always put money on GSP. The guy didn't grow up a wrestler, and look what he's been able to do. He could probably be good at anything if he put his mind to it.
I'm sure quite a few HWs could have lucrative careers in pro-wrestling
MoomBah - Obviously any combat sport, but id assume that most of these athletes suck at stick-ball sports.
I wonder why that would be.
