Your welcome. Mike is so stoked and ready. We were all woundering if he would fight again after his first fight about 2 years ago. (He won 1:04 of first round, KO) After training with the guys at the gym and Matt he has even more confidence than ever. He's at 185 and still benches close to 400 lbs. Some say does this wrestler have a chin? Well he's the youngest of 9 boys and 6 girls his chin has been tested many times over,, lol!

Ive been around champion wrestlers and the regement of training doesnt match those of an avarage martial arts student.
My nephew eats right, runs twice a day, weight trains once a day as well as wrestling practics once a day. All that just to be competative. My brother still trains in a simular manner.
Completely unfair comparison.

You said "Champion wrestlers", then compared them to "average martial arts student"

lol, You compare a champion to an average student.
Soo I would hope the regimen didn't even come close.

compare a "champion wrestler" to a "champion martial artist" and I am sure you will find they are pretty similar as far as work ethic goes.

One doesn't become a champion in a combat setting being lazy,
my point was wrestling isn't any better than a judo champions, or BJJ world champion coming over in my opinion.

Last year I posted a "10 things I want to see in 2009" thread and this was one of them.

So far:
Askren is in MMA
Lay and Prey has not been as predominant
GSP is in route to fight A.Silva

But:
Bobby Lashley is in MMA (against my "No more WWE in MMA" wishes)
EXC's top talent is now under Strikeforce and Affliction still exists

But, we're only one month into 2009. I got high hopes for this year.

That's funny I remember that. I was thinking wasn't there a post about him a while back.

THAT'S why I recognized his name when I read it on the card. Good call, man!

Ben won, I posted a thread with the fight video.

Mike won!! It was a brutal 3 round war & he won the split decision. One judge scored it 28-27, which is the oddest score I've heard, but whatever, the HIT Squad gets the win!!!
