True, but the work ethic that most wrestlers develop translates well into MMA since they have so much to learn. That work ethic means that more wrestlers tend to be willing to put in the time to learn the new skills they need, meaning that a higher percentage of wrestlers have successful cross-overs.

EDIT: I just re-read my post.All those "facts" without a single piece of proof. I must be the Ultimate Keyboard Warrior!!!! :P:
