I just read a statistic that 4 Members of the 2008 US Freestyle Wrestling Team have a combined 29-0 Record in MMA. Cormier (12-0), Askren (11-0), Cejudo (4-0) and Mocco (2-0). Really impressive. Phone Post 3.0

Henry Cejudo kinda looks like he could be related to Frank Shamrock haha.

Interesting. I never really thought of wrestling as a martial art. I'm not convinced it will ever become a popular in MMA though.

just as I always suspected. Wrestling is my first love that's why I think it's funny when I go to a gym and all these guys come in thinking that they're badasses and have absolutely no experience but think they're gonna be good with a bjj classes

VU for the OP, thanks for pointing out this statistic.  

Contray to the popular opinion, i feel that most wrestlers fights are really entertaining so im glad to see them do so well.

Im also baffled by the fact that Jiu-jitsu guys complain about "wrestle fucking".  From my very first jiu-jitsu class I was told that the objective is to clench, take down, gain dominant position, keep it and if possible finish the guy.   Nobody in MMA does that better than the wrestlers, specifically the wrestlers from the U.S.  And this latest batch is getting good at striking as well so its going to get even better in my opinion.

Cejudo was at ACS a little bit to help Moraga get ready for Mighty Mouse


i didn't see much of his BJJ but he looks UFC-ready. likes to throw down on the feet, not scared of getting hit like some grapplers are
