Home to one of the best collegiate wrestling programs in the country, Arizona State University has turned into a hub for future mixed martial artists.
Most recently, NCAA wrestling champion and former Sun Devil Bubba Jenkins made the jump from amateur wrestling to professional MMA. Despite his outstanding accomplishments in collegiate athletics, Jenkins is nowhere near reaching the level of success that many of his fellow Arizona State alumni have in MMA.
Since Dan Severn became the first Arizona State alum to step into a cage in December 1994, former Sun Devils have generated 54 wins inside the Octagon, one UFC championship, two Pride championships, one Strikeforce championship, one UFC superfight title, one The Ultimate Fighter title and five early-UFC tournament titles.
Here are the 10 former Arizona State students most responsible for the university's reputation for cultivating elite mixed martial artists.
