Wrestling in United States falls victim to mixed martial arts: Former NCAA Champ Mark Munoz from Oklahoma State University tried twice to make the U.S. Olympic team. "My dream was to win a gold medal representing my country, but I didn't make it. I'll always consider myself a wrestler."

Cain Velasquez, Mark Munoz & Chris Weidman (former Hofstra All-American) all made the jump from amateur wrestling. They're part of a trend that has resulted in a curious juxtaposition. "It's very hard to make a living as a wrestler," said Munoz.

It's an open question if MMA is siphoning away potential American medals. "Does it hurt our Olympic team?" asked U.S. freestyle coach Zeke Jones. (In fact) Jones prefers to view the MMA phenomenon as a potential recruiting tool that can help resuscitate U.S. wrestling. "The way I look at it, we get a lot of exposure through MMA," Jones said. "There's no question that wrestling gave them tools to become great fighters, & everybody notices that."

Former UC Davis wrestler Urijah "The California Kid" Faber told Munoz he would be perfect for MMA. Munoz "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" easily made the transition. Leaving the mat for the steel cage has become common. According to the UFC, more than 68% of its fighters at least wrestled in H.S. Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture & Tito Ortiz are among the former collegiate wrestlers who became MMA trailblazers.

Cain Velasquez, who was an All-American at Arizona State University, points out that there's only one high school & college sport that puts athletes on a path for MMA: WRESTLING!

"It really does give you a little taste of what it takes to be a mixed martial artist," said Velasquez. "You learn the value of hard work & just how hard you can push your body. It's the same thing in MMA."
