    I was just wondering which fighters in mma's short history were guys who picked up the sport later in life. Are/were there any successful fighters who had no background in a martial art or wrestling style, and just decided to start training??

    Strong wrestling background. And even though he doesn't look like it, he has a good build for fighting. That and he has the perfect mentality for it.

    Tank, with proper training, could have been more than he was.
