Lesnar won't be able to push his weight down on him, he won't be able to hold his arm out (Mir II), he won't be able to ride him (Herring).
I would have liked to have a respectable argument with you until you used "definitely." You are 100% sure how? I don't think Mariusz would say he's 100% certain.

Your dead lifts and bench have less to do with MMA then you might want to believe. Tank Abbot had 600lbs bench press, as evidenced here:



A LOT OF GOOD THAT BENCH DID HIM.

Deadlifts are a measure of strength, not so much power, throwing strikes, avoiding TD's and executing a TD is primarily power based.

Got-damn, you're preaching to the choir again. I rooted for Mariusz when he went up against Kevin Nee, even though Kevin is a good ole boy from the U.S.

AGREED!! GEEZUZ, who am I arguing with?

I'm not touching this one.

Yes. If it were any other strongman, I'd be less inclined to defend his abilities, but Mariusz is an exceptional freak both strength, endurance and even athletic wise.
