    Not a chance, certainly not at a level his pay demands would dictate

    He's already done MMA, so he'd probably be OK at a certain level

    It's not happening though

    Boxers competing in MMA contests have not exactly excelled , Whyte has had some kickboxing experience but unsure whether he has much grappling technique? He would be better sticking to boxing

    I thought he displayed some decent grappling skills against Joe Parker, to be fair.

    Doing a bit of wrestling when you were a boy is a lot different to competing against the best wrestlers in the world in MMA.

    Whyte would be grounded and eaten alive in a genuine MMA contest against a world level operator. By genuine contest, I mean one that wasn’t fixed so he could win (like the early Kimbo slice fights in MMA were).

    Yes he could, but depends on who he fights, it would all depend on the fighting style of the opponent.
