Even the MMA analysts who saw Joe Warren’s star potential did not think he would be this impressive this early on. In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, here in the States, the self-proclaimed “Baddest Man on the Planet” defeated perennial pound-for-pound fighter, Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto. In only his second MMA fight, Warren relied mostly on his wrestling skill and took the fight by decision.
Wrestlers crossing over into MMA is almost as old as the sport itself. The accomplishments of these wrestlers are so well documented, that there is no need to go through them once again. Now, it seems as if any person who won more wrestling matches than they lost is considered to be world-class.
