  1. Good thing it’s mma and not wrestling

    Could probably say the same thing about DJ and Cejudo

  2. Just want to point out that the community college wrestler Jon Jones was able to nullify and largely out grapple the Olympic alternate, World and NCAA wrestling champ Daniel Cormier…

  3. Khamzat was very good in a country not known for elite level wrestling.

    Bo was elite in a country known for top of the food chain guys.

    Pico is spot on here.

  4. Who has better credentials, Askren or Bo?

  5. Of course he would. I don’t think this is news to anyone.

    Hope he learns a good stand up game and not to give his back to bjj guys.

  7. You better bring in an actual bear as a training partner… I’m so tired of wrestlers still trying to play this card in MMA.

    It’s possible statistically speaking. Looking at world and Olympic medal counts, the US has shown to be more proficient at the sport. I would definitely love to see it happen regardless. As a wrestling and jiu jitsu fan, I’ve always thought it’d be interesting to see a pair of fighters compete in all three against each other and see what happens.

  9. Yeah that would be a fun fight if Bo keeps winning and continues evolving. I don’t know what’s the size discrepancy between them, but I’m looking forward to that poential matchup. Along with my boy Shavkat who I think could beat both of them.

  10. What does Pico think the first M in MMA stands for?

  11. Why do they always hype NCAA wrestlers? Like are they olympic level or something? The way people talk about Bo is like he was some world champion at wrestling or something

  12. He would and it’s not close. Khamzat is a Swedish wrestler. BO is an NCAA champ at 197 and U23 Champs. Guys in Olympic matches get “teched.”
    The gap between Bo and khamzat wrestling is insanely high.

  13. American wrestling nerds are out of control.

  14. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  15. After what happened to Askren, my faith in these very accomplished wrestlers crossing over to mma is very low. I’d rather bet on the equally accomplished kickboxer

  16. Aaron Pico would tech Zachary Freeman too. But this is mma.

  17. Who can win 1 on 1 at basketball?

  18. Is “would tech” a typo for “would teach” or does that mean he’d like beat him using very technical skills?

  19. “in wrestling” – Khamzat would get washed in a wrestling match against Bo it would be no competition whatsoever. Swedish nationals? Weakest competition pool. Also people keep comparing freestyle and folkstyle – folkstyle is what khabibs style resembles and is generally what does better in an mma context when it comes to ground control.

  20. Why are people so confident in NCAA wrestlers? Like you have Dagestanis and shit who fought actual war criminals and murderers in sambo tournaments but fans are like “Lmao this guy beat a roided 19 year old kid he must be a wrestling god and would teach the sambo guy a lesson!”

  21. Oh look the Americans are at it again

  22. We won’t know for a while until Nickel doesn’t get fed someone who has no takedown defense or ground game.

  23. It’s only a surprise people are getting defensive about such an obvious statement.

    Just because he’s a better wrestler doesn’t mean that he will dominate Khamzat on the ground though? I’m not saying it won’t happen but too many times we have seen elite level grapplers get subbed after taking a few shots in the process.

  25. American nerds on here reaching for a hero.

  26. I couldn’t care less what would happen in an amateur wrestling match. I have tried to watch wrestling so many times and it is the most boring shit in the world. I have been an MMA fan for over 20 years, and I enjoy boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, 4oz gloves muay thai, lethwei, traditional bjj, submission-based bjj, bareknuckle boxing, even judo and sumo tournaments are okayish. Basically, any sport with two people fighting. Amateur wrestling is fucking unwatchable. Doesn’t matter if it is freestyle or folkstyle, the rules are silly and the sport is dumb. There is a reason it has been around since the ancient Greeks and still hasn’t developed a big fan following.

  27. Literally no one cares about wrestling.

  28. Aaron Pico is really trying to give himself publicity by name dropping Bo.

    Literally means nothing, maybe he can take him down in MMA, but can he hold him down. I doubt it and than can he strike with him and take damage like khamzat proven he can.
