Guys with weak to decent striking would be taken down and get pounded like they did before. Lesnar to me beats the likes of Nog, Bigfoot, Struve etc. The only guys that would stop him are JDS, Velasquez, Overeem, and Carwin.
re-watch the heering fight, there was a point where heath had him somewhat up on the cage and landed a nice upercut which didn't phase brock seriously when you have that kind of surgery, it takes the fight out of ya
