    If lebron james started mma early. How do you think he would do? Not alot of great heavyweights at this mans size but he is very athletic for his size. Joe Rogan said in this video he would clean the division out but i'm not sure i can take him seriously ever his he thought Rhonda Rousey could become mens heavyweight champion.

    Who knows. Maybe he would react to punches like Brock Lesnar. Being an athlete and a fighter aren't the same thing

    You’re either a fighter or you’re not. Athletic ability helps but you definitely have to have that screw loose mentality.

    If he was a kicking and jabbing aggressive fighter it would work...his body type could lack center of gravity, and struggle to grapple HWs...heart is #1 as posted above

    I like NFL middle linebackers, safety/cornerbacks/running backs as the best crossovers from pro sports

    He's an athletic freak the likes the ufc has never seen yet.
    I think he would cut to light heavy, but either way, if he started early enough he would be more unbeatable than juicy Jones.

    Lebron cries too much for foul calls. People like Draymond Green, Ron Artest, Ben Wallace, or Dennis Rodman would do well if they had started mma early.

    if you have the life energy to earnestly discuss this sort of thing, I am jealous of you, you cheer-filled bright-eyed motherfuckers.

    He would probably have had the same career as Semmy Schilt.

    I’d have been a 3 division world champ by now if I hadn’t had that first bit of pussy

    Idk if Lebron has the heart for fighting.

    Someone like Rafael Nadal, on the other hand, would have been an absolute savage.
