There was a pretty cool article about former Johnson Creek wrestler Mark Lemminger and his MMA career in the Jefferson Daily Union this morning.  You can read it at http://www.dailyunion.com/sports/article_5127ab24-dd83-11e6-b158-47d1baddb07f.html

It kinda got me thinking, what other Wisconsin wrestlers have gone into MMA (amateur or pro).

Obviously Ben Askren is doing quite well with One FC (does anyone know when his next fight is scheduled?)
Mark Lemminger
Alex Polizzi is also fighting out of the gym that Lemminger trains

Anyone else seeing significant success?

Sergio Pettis just beat a very good John Moraga at the last UFC card. Wrestled at Pius. He's 15-2 and 6-2 in the UFC.
