NFL Going UFC Part 2

Due to the overwhelming response I received for my first piece on “NFL Going UFC” a follow up to that particular blog made sense.  Therefore I decided to throw in some more names that made the cut but not included in the original post.  These guys are no less deserving and would provide us with some good television.  The way this is shaping out I may have to contact Dana White and tell him that season 11 should exclusively be football players.  So without further adieu here is some more of my dream football UFC cast:

Heavyweight – Kellen Winslow II (6’4” 240lbs)

Winslow’s warrior attitude is perfect for the UFC.

“It’s war…they’re out there to kill you…so I’m’a kill ‘em…I’m a fuckin’ soldier” Ah yes, Winslow’s tirades would be Spike TV gold.  I can just hear these words uttered throughout the TUF house thus forcing this bad boy from “The U” to prove his bite is as bad his bark.  You can’t tell me a match between he and Shockey would anything less than intoxicating to watch.

Heavyweight – Craig ‘Ironhead’ Heyward (5’11” 280lbs)

Opponents of “Ironhead” might break their hands against his titanium cranium.

May the big guy rest in peace but a truly lovable and tough guy like “Ironhead” is the perfect antidote to the hot heads that seem to find their way onto these shows.  Any guy who sports the name “Ironhead” would have to put his moniker to the test.  What better way than in the cage?  With his hilarious Zest body soap commercials he’d be the perfect pitchman in the even he would win.  He would certainly be the comic relief in the house only to be contrastingly different once the cage door closes.

Heavyweight – T.O (6’3” 224lbs)

I detest T.O but I’d love to see him get his ass beat.

This is actually should be a Strikeforce entry.  T.O would have to compete in their women’s heavyweight division because he is a straight up bitch.  Maybe Cyborg can bulk up, pound on T.O and really give him a something to cry about.  Sorry, just had to say it.

Athtletes have a hard time in retirement.  They often say nothing in life replaces the rush they experienced in the game.  Maybe that is why some are pursuing a second career in fighting.  It’s the sport that requires the most discipline and that perhaps gives the athlete in question the drive he needs.  America loves violent sports therefore combining our two most brutal sports, football and mma, only seems right.
