Good for us because he'll be making a fool out of himself for comedic purposes. Bad for him because he'll be making a fool out of himself for comedic purposes. Then again, Bob Sapp has done it to great fanfare, even Kevin Randleman's done it.

What the.....?

What is this guy thinking. He took Wanderlei the distance, took a head kick from Cro Cop and kept coming, and almost beat Fedor.

Big disappointment.

Can't make weight, I was hoping he'd sign with K-1 or M-1...

That is messed up to hear that he's going to pro wrestling.He was a really good fighter. He could've done good in the UFC.You know what's really funny? We have MMA guys going to wrestling and wrestlers coming to MMA. Here,I have an idea. We could be like the NFL and trade Lessner for Hunt.

What a big loss for the MMA world. Hunt was a game heavyweight always down to throw big shots and take big shots. We'll miss out on some potentially great matchups now

You guys make it seem like his fighting career is done. There have been countless fighters who have done pro wrestling and and then back to fighting. Bob Sapp is a great example, as well as Josh Barnett. Its a great way to maintain your income when not fighting.
