    Pro Wrestler turns MMA and wins

    http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/f...p?eventid=2693

    I haven't watch MMA much in the past few years, but a guy I enjoyed watching wrestle, Sean O'Haire competed at Rumble on the Rock and beat Shungo Oyama (who I have never heard of).

    O'haire was a monster to start with at 6'6 270, and the reports I read claim he had to drop 25 pounds for the fight.

    Curious as to what he looks like now that he has trimmed down:

    At 270

    At 245

    Crap, I wish I had that kind of genetics.

    As I understand it O'Haire was a competitive kick boxer before going into pro wrestling. So he did have a base to train from when he went into MMA.
    Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?

    It's sad, he had so much ability, but never could utilize it or really had the oppertunity too. They were on to something with his "Embrace your insticts and passions" gimmick, which required talking. Instead the just made him into a meat-head jobber.

    Hopefully, he'll be able to have success using his physical attributes in this enviornment.

    You DO realize they make weights up in pro-wrestling correct?

    Still that is an impressive build.
