In MMA I think Ben would win in 2014 - he is really starting to put together his ground and pound... but Marcelo is amazing. But yeah they're pretty far apart in weight no?

Also, that interview was from 4 years ago.. Personally I don't think we'll see MG fight MMA again, which is a huge bummer.

Askren.

BJJ alone doesn`t automatically translate to having success in the UFC.

very true crowbar but MG was tooling the guy in his last MMA bout who out weighed him until the rd restart.

MG is the exception he trained full time at att giving people fits from what I hear.

can anybody here tell storys about MG training MMA and what they thought and just how good he truly was?

The issue I have read up is MG didn't train with gloves when rolling for his MMA fight. So when it came to fight time he was having trouble adjusting. Phone Post 3.0

They tried to sign Aoki last year but he turned down the contract. I'm pretty sure he makes too much money in OneFC. Phone Post 3.0

Oh did they? Well no worries then, I thought they just ignored him, as far as I know ONE FC do not reveal payrolls. Phone Post 3.0

But maybe also because he knows how embarrassingly non-competitive a UFC fight would be for him
What are you talking about? His only losses in the last 5 years were against Melendez and Eddie Alvarez (who he beat prior). He has gone 16-2 during that time with wins Phone Post 3.0

He's retired from bjj competition, he's not a young man anymore and mma is a young man's sport. Sadly I don't think we will ever see it, he seems focused on his academy and family, good for him. Phone Post 3.0

Lmao, do you base everything of records? Alvarez and Melendez are the only top ten guys he has fought on that run and against Eddie he looked like a complete clown. The worst striking I have ever seen from a "high level" fighter. His sub game is slick but he isn't taking down 90% of UFC's LW division and wouldn't be able to handle the heavy top game of guys like Khabib, Miller or Bendo, I think all 3 could stop him via GNP, even Bendo.

He would get KTFO fast in the UFC. Phone Post 3.0

Yeah, dismissing the points and backing out of an argument is easier than admitting you're wrong. I get it. Phone Post 3.0
