I’ve got a question: Who would win a Shaq-Big Baby MMA bout? Shaq is ginormous, but I’d put my money on Big Baby. He’s got that low center of gravity, he’s an agile monster and for some reason I could see him being terrific with submission holds. The only problem with Big Baby’s MMA talents is that his punches do more damage to himself than they do to his target. But at least his punches hit the target. Shaq just swings and misses, like he did with Brad Miller, or gets worked over, like he did by Charles Barkley. So I’ve saying Big Baby would win that fight. He is one of the last people in the NBA who I’d want to brawl. The very last? DJ Mbenga. I have no doubt that the diesel, seven-foot tall “Hey, you guys!”-looking dude could kill me with his bare hands if he so chose. Seriously.
P.S. – Major tip of the hat to Chris Forsberg for the video. Go check out ESPN Boston for more about Shaq and Big Baby at the UFC Fan Expo.
