    Sylvester Terkay, Jake Shields, Kazushi Sakuraba, Caol Uno, Nori Kid Yamamoto (wrestled in Arizona during HS), Antoine Jaoude, Jason Black, Antonio McKee.

    Indiana natives Aaron Riley (Cannelton HS), Scott Henze (Scottsburg? HS), Chris Lytle (92-93 Indiana state runner-up, Southport HS), Jeremy Bolt (South Dearborn HS), Kurt Kinser (Bloomington South, IU), Dave Herman (FW Concordia?, IU)...there are a ton of former Indiana wrestlers participating in MMA.

    I believe Gerald Harris wrestled at Cleveland State, not Eastern Michigan.

    And, don't forget to mention guys from the current season of TUF ... like the 2 guys who just fought on last night's episode: Ryan Bader (Arizona State, 2x AA) and Tom Lawlor (Univ Central Florida, 3x natl champ NCWA).

    Aaron Simpson, Ryan Bader, Jamie Varner, one of the Beebe brothers, Tyron Woodley, Shane Roller...there are some other minor corrections in your list Champ, like Gerald Harris went to Cleveland State, and Paul Bradley went to Iowa

    A bunch of people wrestled at Pima JC in Tucson as well, like Drew Fickett, Jesse Forbes, and Efrain Escudero

    Thanks, Cleveland State and Eastern Michigan are both green, thats why I thought it was EMU.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Matushenko giving up tons of weight beat Lesnar in the JUCO national finals. How funny is that, and it's crazy to think someone good enough to beat olympians would wrestle only junior college. He won it at 177 and then the next year wins it at Hwt. Lesnar wins it the next year at heavyweight.

    Did anyone mention Baroni? He wrestled at both Hoftsra and Central Michigan. Jay Hieron also wrestled at Hofstra.

    When Kerr became national champion, he beat Holman (the #1 seed) in the semis and then beat Randy in the finals. Randy had beaten Kerr earlier that year and a few years before, Coleman tech falled Kerr in the nationals.

    Tom Erikson was a 2x #1 seed at Ok State and coaches at Purdue; Randy said he got into MMA after seeing Frye compete, a teamate of his at Ok St.

    Eric Bradley is the AA from Penn State who is doing MMA
    Also Phil Davis (Penn State, DI Champ), Cain Velaquez (ASU, DI AA), Jens Pulver

    You also need to add DI runner tp Couture and Chael Sonnen was an AA

    Sean Sherk had to have wrestled somewhere right? He's always w/ the Minnesota guys, so there would be my best guess.
