Obviously his stand up is very similar for someone with that type of physique. Basically he will never be able to generate much power. I'm glad he kept it real and fought in a much smaller circuit with a tune up fight. This actually makes it all the more impressive for Brock to come in to the UFC and fight top tiered fighters with very limited MMA experience.

It's good to see cross over as it further cements MMA as the sport for the I-generation.
There is a slight difference in this case I believe...Brock and Bobby had legitimate NCAA wrestling careers, something which I don't believe Dave Bautista did.
