I predict he will be an all american in college and them move on to be UFC champion (or what ever the top tier MMA is in 18-20 years.). That kid has some moves well beyond his age.

Mohawk = +15 grappling

Great video. One reason I like the popularity of mma is that it gives gifted wrestlers like the boy in the video an opportunity to actually have a career. Before mma you could be the best wrestler in the world and not make any money at it, other than Coaching.

What a talented little guy. I hope he stays with it and really makes a name for himself.


#5

He choked the other kid out with his legs. Badass.


#6

The kid walks on the mat like a boss, fantastic.


#7

or you would be in the olympics


#8

You guys figure you could take him?


#9

They should study this kid to see if all the common wrestling/weight cutting myths are true: growth stunting, lowered T levels, etc.

He'll get beat, and like a typical kid will give it up and move on to something else. Or he'll rebel against his parents who most likely will pressure him his entire childhood.


#10

Yea I agree, his attitude is so awsome.


#11

So you're saying that low T and stunted growth resulting from starving yourself as a child is a "myth"?


#12

That's not a choke, it's a leg cradle.

We had a kid on my high school wrestling team that was a stud like this. He'd been wrestling since he was 5. By the time he got to high school he was burnt out and didn't care about it any more.


#13

Wrong choice of words, but I think you get my point.


#14

Father of wrestler: "Now don't get cocky son, there is always someone bigger, faster and tougher than you out there, next tournament you might lose."

Son: "Bullshit Dad lol".

I hope this kid get's to meet Dan Gable.

Damn that kid is real smooth in his takedown technique (awesome high crotch) and shows good set-ups, along with being more aggressive and stronger than the other kids.
