You probably heard Frank say it in the Ken vs Kimbo fight(that never happened) build up. I think that is where I heard him say it.

I know you aren't trying to strike up an argument with me, nor I with you, I just want to clarify. I know Ken had some wrestling skills, but he wasn't an elite level wrestler. Ken did not put wrestling on the map, so to speak, in terms of being important in mma.
