unless he's got a very deep background, especially with wrestling [the basis of MMA,] he's not going to make an easy transition. he's too old. he's hit his physical peak, for sure.


it would be cool to see his handspeed with 4 oz gloves, though.


unless he's literalyl impossible to take down he won't be a successful MMA fighter. if he can somehow develop top defense from being taken down he will have a good chance of knocking people out spectacularly, but that will never happen.
