Gables interview on MMAfightsonSBN

Recommended Posts

He is so young he says people will still be talking about his win when he is 40.  20 years passes in the blink of an eye!  Wrestling will refer to this match when is 80.

He thinks he can win a UFC title with 18 months of training. That's hilarious!

I would agree with you if he was at any weight other than heavyweight.  His athleticism will overwhelm most in the UFC rankings, even at the very top.  At heavyweight that can overcompensate for less MMA specific technique.  Brock got to fight for the title in like fight #2 or #3, and Brock is no Gable athletically speaking.

The talent level at heavyweight was not very good when Brock was champ. He beat a 45 year old Randy Coture who was really a light heavyweight for the belt.

There's no doubt that Gable brings the highest level wrestling with him, but can he take a punch? Can he throw a punch? There's a lot of unknowns for him and his skill set and if he rushes MMA and tries to fight Francis Ngannou or Ciryl Gane too soon then he may possibly get launched into orbit by a heavy punch. If he does go MMA hopefully he'll be wise enough to be patient with his fights and also not rely solely on his wrestling or he might just end up like Askren.
