In his book "How To Fight Tough" it goes into how Dempsey not only trained in boxing, but trained in wrestling and jui-jit-su as well. Pretty interesting stuff. Would have been cool as ***** if MMA was around back then.

He would have had the perfect arsenal it seems like too. Could wrestle if he was getting beat on the feet which is unlikely to begin with but if he got by a shot, if somebody shot on him his wrestling could maybe keep it on the feet, and the juijitsu works both ways on top and on bottom.

Just came across that and wanted to bring it up..Not sure if this has been discussed before...
