Quote :
Brock Lesnar. Alberto del Rio. Bobby Lashley.

Those are just three professional wrestlers who have dabbled in the world of MMA. They are among the most famous men, due to their runs in WWE and the amount of fights they have actually taken.

But a number of pro wrestlers have tried the fastest-growing combat sports; you just don't know they did it. A lot of them have taken just one or a small number of fights, which is probably why you're not aware they competed in MMA.

So, here are five pro wrestlers you probably didn't know who gave MMA a shot at one point.


"The Beast from the East" Bam Bam Bigelow took one fight as a super heavyweight against Kimo Leopoldo in a U-Japan event in 1996.

Before becoming a pro wrestler, Bigelow was a bounty hunter and a beast of a man. He was a natural athlete who did things men more than 300 pounds shouldn't be able to do in the ring.

However, against a trained fighter in Leopoldo, he didn't fare very well.....
