Alberto Del Rio as an MMA Fighter
 


Didn't ever know he was an MMA fighter, also didn't know he fought in Pride. Pretty cool.

His record as a mma fighter was not good or bad but decent, also not shame to lose with that Crocop on those days he was a beast.

Versus Tatsuo Nakano : -> win (rear naked choke)


Versus Kengo Watanabe (first fight)-> loss (rear naked choke)


Versus Kengo Watanabe (second fight) -> win (belly to belly suplex)

Neat, I never knew he did either. Didn't look very impressive in that fight at all, doesn't look like he can trade punches that well either.

Dos Caras was on the Mexican national greco-roman team and he was third at the World Junior Championships in 1997.

He also won the Central American and Caribbean Games in his weight division three times and won a medal at the Pan American Games. Rodríguez was on track to compete at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, but due to a lack of funding and support, Mexico did not send a wrestling team that year.

He trained for MMA with the famous Marco Antônio de Lima Ruas. The UFC 7 Tournament Champion considered one of the earliest examples of the complete mixed martial artist, highly skilled in both striking and grappling.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marco_Ruas

Del Rio's MMA stats are average, but still positive : 9 wins and 5 losses and a lot of wins by submission (7).

I find them quite impressive due to the fact he wasn't a professional and had the guts to fight. I would pay to watch HHH fighting in MMA and I am not sure he would win any fights.


Procop was a killer during this time, Del Rio I salute you.
