What is at the core of a great MMA fighter? The mastery of various martial arts is a HUGE part of it but strength and conditioning is also a big part. An MMA fighter has to be strong enough to dominate the opponent, throw powerful punches and kicks, absorb impact, and be able to resist a constant application of force. He or she has to be powerful and fast, and have enough endurance to be able to perform at high level for five 5-minute rounds.
There are so many reasons, I would like to see a match-up between Aaron Rajman and Sky Moiseichik. I have watched Aaron as his career has progressed and he has become a very talented athlete with tons of potential. I have not personally seen Sky in the ring but his 6-3 record speaks for itself. One cannot ignore that there is much more to this match-up than meets the eye. On the surface, it seems like a festering animosity between two guys that have had a turbulent past and share no love loss between them but when you dig deeper it becomes more of a "Hatfields and McCoys" Old-fashioned feud.
