If Colby can hang with these guys nothing Usman does wrestling wise will overwhelm him.

This is the guy who used to school Marty Fake Newsman in wrestling? 


Ehh I'm not sure I believe the mullet guy schooled Usman ..perhaps way back in junior high they wrestled and Usman lost but not within the past 5-6 years

Mocco

If you have not watched it you should see the video on him and his dad driving him far away to practice and cooking in the van.

I forget all the details but geeze man seemed like his dad was more than all in.

Steve Mocco is a beast of a wrestler. He’s not even that big of a guy but in high school (he went to Blair academy) he beat everybody. It was Weird seeing a guy his size who looked dorky but was still strong looking, be so damn good. I didn’t face him in the tournament we were both at, but I faced a 215 lbs New Jersey State champ (he was like 219 that day because we only had heavy and 189 at the time in PA) and he beat me very quickly lol. Well mocco beat him almost as easily. It was amazing to watch


We had Mocco at Hofstra for an Official visit back in the day. He was a cool cat, obviously he would up going the Lehigh route. I later met his sister Katie upstate at Brockport University, she was a doll. Beautiful young lady who I was completely unaware was a total badass in Judo. If memory serves me right, she went on to represent the US Olympic team, but I don't recall if she placed. Surprised we never saw either compete in MMA

You went to brockport?

uuummmm... "mullet guy" was this years US world team member... bronze medalist at pan ams... US open winner... 

he would make sweet love to usman in a wrestling match and not even break a sweat...

 

ignorant MMA forum nerds are insufferable...

 

BTW... the mullett is very recent because he couldnt get his hair braided for a tourney while overseas... it is done with a wink and a nod... the mullett has a long and storied tradition in american wrestling culture...

Downey was supposed to have his MMA debut this passed January on Cerrone’s MMA promotion, but the date changed because Cerrone took a fight and it ended up being rescheduled the same date as a big open tournament so he pulled out

he was also in the works to smack around deron winn a couple of years ago after some twitter shenanigans between him and DC...

point being, he has been preparing to run rough shod over hapless MMA "athletes" for several years, but, still had something to prove in the wrestling world... i figure after trials next year he is all in full time and will start beating up chumps directly after... while still close to his physical prime... i kinda feel sorry for those guys...

Downey was made for MMA, he is going to be an absolute superstar.  I don't think there's any question he's not a good guy (personally, I love him) but he is mean as hell and I love his give no fucks attitude

He went away for a few years for white collar crime when Steve was elementary age. Trying to make up for lost time I’d bet.

Didn’t know that, but his dad was always at his matches that’s for sure. I couldn’t imagine being away from my daughter for a jail stint.... I’d likely be trying to make up for it like that too

Yeah, the current U.S world team representative at 189lbs, AKA the best 189lber in America... while David Taylor is injured.

Someone school me on this Pat Downey, dont know him. Thanks

Short version : very talented but has behavioral issues and a whack job dad that posts on social media and message boards constantly. Kicked off of Nebraskas team, went the juco route afterwards and I believe won a title. Then went to Iowa State, placed 5th at NCAAs and was again dismissed from the squad. In his "off season" he had some quality freestyle wins, Iowa picked him up essentially as a walk on transfer but he never wrestled a match for them. Smart money bets on him going the MMA route where he may have some success. Has had some run ins with the law and at one point I believe posted a revenge porn type video of his then ex, now current GF.

That's the best rundown I've read.. Hit on all points, nice

His twitter shows his recent PED test results but obviously those can be gamed.

Why do they call it the smell test?
