Thought I'd throw this out to the cognescenti: what are your opinions of (former WWE) Brock Lesnar fighting some 7' 2" Korean dude?

Might be someone to shake up the heavyweight divisions.

I read that article and have to agree with the opinion that Lesner has some skills. Being the 2000 NCAA champ does not happen by accident.
He'll be a pretty good "ground and pound" fighter once he gets some bouts in.
The UFC could use some exciting heavyweights. Lesner could be just the ticket.

The dude is big, strong, athletic and has a great wrestling game. It would not be hard to bring on a decent stand up and submissions game to make that guy a nightmare IMO.

There was a clip of Lesnar on the CF site that showed his training at the U of M. I think it was a WWE promotion thing. He looked big and nasty then. It ought to be an interesting fight.

They did a promo on his training when he was trying out with the Vikings a few years ago also. Guy's a monster, IMO.

I kept waiting for Brock to do some WWE move on the other guy, heh.

Fights like that one are one of the reasons I just can't really get into MMA. Quick and unexciting. I'm glad other people enjoy it though.

Brock clearly has physical material. Dominating the opponent with raw strength is fun to watch ..(mark kerr) rarely a long term success strategy....(mark kerr) Mental aspect of the game is way more important (mark kerr)....the fact that he trys WWE BS during the instrcutions and doesn't tap glove speaks louder than his awkward ground and pound.

a year in Thailand might make him into a solid fighter.

Because K-1 has weak fight cards. But UFC/Pride unification should put out some awesome fights. Lesnar's opponent was a last minute replacement.

But UFC/Pride HW's such as Fedor, Gonzaga, Couture, Crocop, Arlovski, Noguiera are some elite class.

Heck the UFC/Pride LHW's are awesome as well; Shogun, Rampage, Silva, Dan Henderson, Chuck, Sokoudjou and Arona.

Brock certainly has the physical attributes...just a matter of if he can develop the skill sets. No reason why not.

I saw Brock Lesner at a U of Michigan and U of Minnesota dual meet back in 2000. he might be one of the biggest, meanest looking dudes i have ever seen in person. you could see the six pack through his singlet. I would bet he will be a contender some day.
