No matter your stance on wrestling's role in MMA, it is hard to deny that in most cases, wrestlers are insanely strong. Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin prove that theory, but so does a nine-year-old from Maryland.
Yes, Aaron Brooks is 9, has won more than 300 wrestling matches, and he's working to break the world record for weightlifting in his 8-9 age group in the 88-pound class. The record is 77 pounds; he's shooting to lift 90-100 pounds.
