Probably has a lucrative coaching job lined up. If not he'll be fighting in a few years. Phone Post 3.0

Honestly, I'm ok with this. While it's great that a lot of top tier guys are transitioning over these days(like half the 08 team), wrestling needs to hold onto some of it's stars. They need guys that can continue to generate interest as coaches, commentators, promoters, etc after they've stopped competing full-time.

Look at Sanderson. As good as he was at wrestling, I'm glad he's chosen to coach wrestling instead of going into MMA, despite very obviously still being a monstrous athlete and competitor. Phone Post 3.0

It's not surprising he tweeted that. He gets asked about mma all the time and always says that he doesn't have much interest in fighting. It would be cool if he changed his mind though. He just won a world championship recently on a broken ankle. Phone Post 3.0

I work out with jb a few times a month and since winning Olympic gold he isn't hurting for money at all. He will end being the head coach at Nebraska after his wrestling career. Phone Post 3.0

Seriously? Are you on the world team as well? VU for you.

I'm glad JB is staying in wrestling. We need the top guys to stay.

I thought he had mentioned fighting in some of his earlier interviews though. What changed his mind? Phone Post 3.0

not everyone who grapples is interested in fighting. takes a certain mindset and if you dont have it you dont have it. theres no shame in saying he will stick to wrestling.

Meh. Kurt Angle won an Olympic gold medal with a broken freaking neck. Plus he was the first Euro-Continental Champion except for D-Lo Brown. Phone Post

I'm sure not everybody, shocking to most of you, believes in beating the living fuck out of another human being's face, skull and body for no practical reason at all. It's really not normal to make somebody else look like they went through a car windshield at 40 mph unless they are causing immediate harm to you or your family. Either that or yeah maybe he doesn't want to get hit either.

Good for him. He's a superstar in Wresting, why go into mma where he'll get a shit ton of hate for using his wresting? People will label him boring and a lay N prayer, for using a skill in which he is the best at.

Even if he's hurting for money in the future, he'll probably go to WWE before MMA Phone Post 3.0

Personally, I'm happy about it. Jordan is arguably the p4p best wrestler on earth, and he is an awesome poster boy for wrestling. The guy still has a big career ahead of him as a wrestler and as a coach in the future. He won't be hurting for money if he's winning world titles and he will be able to coach at the OTC or basically any school thats looking to hire.

I don't want wrestling to be looked at just as a breeding ground for MMA fighters, it's its own sport and should have its own stars.

The best wrestlers or strikers or bjj guys rarely become the best fighters anyway. Too much bad habits to unlearn. If he's happy with wrestling, good job for him...
