While professional wrestlers follow a script or talk to each other about what to do next, MMA fighters are actual fighters! MMA fighters are trained killers who can legitimately kill a person if there are no rules. MMA fights are not usually fixed or booked, so what goes in the ring are 100% real.
Although more professional wrestlers are not real fighters, some of them are! Some come from a proper amateur wrestling background. Some of them are also MMA Fighters. Former RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey was at one time the best female MMA fighter of the world.
Matt Riddle was an MMA fighter. A few professional wrestlers even joined MMA and built a winning record! In fact, Brock Lesnar is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion. He is probably the most successful MMA fighter that is also a WWE superstar.
Roman Reigns is one of WWE’s top guys. He is a baby face wrestler and the fans love him these days. This was always not the case, but now fans do as he is a cancer survivor. Roman Reigns spoke to Wrestling Inc. about Ronda Rousey.
He was asked how he would fare in a real fight with Ronda Rousey. "She's going to chop my arms off me," Reigns said. "If she gets a hold of one, she going to break that thing. I think I can take a punch from her but she would snap my arm like a twig."
