What collegiate wrestling program has produced the best MMA fighters?


Recommended Posts

Where did Sonnen study? Because it's there.




Arizona State got my vote; Hendo was an Olympic alternate and champion in Pride and Strikefroce, as well as UFC tournament winner. Cain is in my opinion the most dominate heavyweight champion of all time (it's not very steep competition considering he's in a 5-way tie for most successful defenses with Randy, Timmy, Brock and Andrei). Dan Severn is an original MMA icon who's I believe in the top three for most fights ever, and was in there as recently as a couple of years ago. Despite being listed in Oklahoma only, Don Frye originally wrestled at ASU with Dan Severn before going to OSU where he met Randy - so that's a half point for them. And then Ryan Bader, Aaron Simpson, and C.B. Dollaway are all solid additions plus they left out relative UFC newcomer John Moraga and the formerly consistent, now unsteady Kyle Kingsbury.


Sheer volume, and in quality of accolades, I think the Sun Devils have proven to be a top notch producer of MMA fighters.
