Lesnar's an interesting choice, I too admired his athleticism. His top control in Mir 2 was impressive. And of course the haymaker that shattered Herring's orbital.
Had you watched Condit prior to his fights in the UFC? I guess that is why I wasn't that disappointed with Condit's tdd because I knew it wasn't great nor never will be as he relies too much on his sweeps and submissions.

Another fighter that pops into my head is Marquardt, just never able to put all his skill together to be a truly great fighter.
