Can't wait until Jordan Burrows gets into MMA. The guy would be and is a straight up beast. He would destroy everything and anything in the Welterweight division if he trains MMA.
I could be wrong but hasn't he pretty much already ruled it out? His heart is in wrestling and he's one of the few guys with huge finacial (he gets big bonuses for every medal he wins) and long term career(coaching) incentives to stay in that sport. Plus I think he said he wants to go to rio in 2016.
Bloodyelbow did a good 3 part series on the need to lure more Olympic atheletes to MMA and multitude of roadblocks stopping them.
Shame though as Jordan seems a real likeable guy,and he had one of my fave lines of the Olympics, just before his first bout-
"man im ready for anyone, the Queen of England steps in that circle Im shooting the double-leg!"
love that mental image.
EDIT -also, just seen Mir is out of the DC fight, injury strikes again, another one bites the dust.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread
i got banned for calling someone a moron. How much clearer do you want me to fucking be? Its twitter, i was going to write something like...
"there is this terribly retarded poster named ogorodnikov who is a bit of a moron. Now i called this moron, a moron during an argument where he was again showing how much of a moron he was. Evo saw this and told everyone off so i stopped. Later on, another mod came in and banned me even though it was stopped and a non issue by that point. Its all a bit of a joke lad but whatever, banned for a week. Oh deary me can't call a spade a spade and now i can't call a moron a moron as this wasn't rants but in the mma thread. ironic as he probably just calls it UFC to his retarded mates and likely only started watching after it became the popular thing. oh well nice chat, and i'll reply again the next time you tweet me"
but alas, it restricts me to 140 characters and twitter handles are included so i really only had 129 characters. I suppose i could have said it over 6 tweets but really the main point could be done in a sentence, hence "i got banned for calling someone a moron."
also note that he keeps responding to the issue about his ban without hesitation. if he truly didn't give a shit or if i was truly "too dumb to respond to," he would've stopped. he's basically broken now. he's short circuited and doesn't know how to fix the irreversible damage he's done to his internet ego.
