As the wrestling bloodline further infiltrates the world of MMA, it would seem only a matter of time before we get a few rivalries carry over to the octagon. There was a time when wrestlers refused to fight other wrestlers, but nowadays that means not getting a shot at the title. Piggybacking that thought process, it seems that a few of the powerhouse wrestling programs do not have wrestlers moving to the MMA circuit. Can you imagine what kind of fan interest will be generated the first time a PSU MMA stud fights an Iowa MMA stud. It's only a matter of time before we get a Hendricks/Woodley/Askren match-up. Any thoughts? Any match ups you'd like to see?

Metcalf vs Caldwell immediately comes to mind.

Askren lately has been calling out Hendricks saying thats the fight he wants if he gets his due with the UFC.
