Matches are worked, scripted, and although most of the wrestlers out there still know how to make things look very realistic, put on top performances, it’s still not the real thing. MMA competitors on the other hand, know what it means to get pummelled, and dish out a beating. What these guys do in the octagon is very real, hence they get a whole heap of respect, have earnt a tremendous fan following over the years as the industry’s just continued to grow.

They have a thirst for the real action, and some have actually become pretty prominent figures in the world of MMA. These are 10 professional wrestlers who have also tried MMA:
