P-Willy in the octagon

This can only help his game if you can imagine that. What is good is the grappling and need for balance. OL and others that try to block and wrestle him to the ground to get him out of the way will have a harder time. Plus eye hand body coordination from trying to evade kicks and punches. I doubt that Coulture, knowing he is a football player would train him to the extent that PW would be injured, but rather custom a training regimen for him.

Some sports are good to train in-like it seems soccer is good for basketball players and rugby is good for certain positios in football.
Anybody who studies Martial Arts, or any form of fighting for that matter, would not be afraid of Patrick Willis. I know people like to beef him up and act like he can do anything to anybody and he's some unstoppable force and blah blah, but in reality he is just a great linebacker. That doesn't mean he can fight, nor would he automatically be good in combat sports.

If he were to fight in MMA, or UFC to be exact, his weight would put him against guys like Brock Lesnar. Anyone who thinks Patrick Willis would have a chance against a guy like Brock Lesnar is only fooling themselves.

But aside from that whole "how scary would he be" angle, I think it's a good thing that Patrick Willis is taking up MMA training. The training for combat sports is very intense and can only help him with his coordination, stamina, speed and power. He could get even better on the field by doing this. Now that is scary.

Even if he does break something, I think he would play through it....

Yes, you are. It's not like he's actually going to do a fight. He's just training through the methods they have to offer. Those methods create strength, agility, endurance, and toughness. Jeff Ulbrich does it too. At least he used to. If he were to actually practice fighting people, then I would say it's a bad idea, but he's just doing the workout routine. I hear your concern though.

Patriot's offensive lineman Stephen Neal could take Brock:



Stephen to Brock, "I beat you in college, I'll beat you again."

Willis is so tough he doesn't have to.


Willis v. Leinart

In the octagon or on the field, it will still look the same.


Damnit. This would be a lot better if my gif would show up.

PW would destroy them both.

Agreed.

He might have beaten him in a wrestling match, but I highly doubt he'd win in the octagon.
