How would a Pro Bodybuilder do in MMA?

Have you ever trained in any type of fighting art? Heres quote from Joe Lewis (the kick boxer, not Joe louis the boxer) who had excellent boxing skills,“When you have a 230 pound football player rushing you in a street fight, you can’t stand there and calmly pinpoint a strike or an accurate kick”. It’ s even harder to react to a wrestler when they shoot , and if you do not have ground skills you will be in big trouble. “Heart” will only take you so far if you do not have the skills. I am a decent boxer/ kick boxer and nothing was more humbling than the first time I got taken to the ground. A boxer has a punchers chance, but it is a small chance.
