Should Brock Lesnar fight Cormier

I was listening to Rogan's podcast earlier and he was bragging about how Cormier is an unstoppable wrestler. It made me think of this match up. What do you guys think?

I'm with you haha. I would still like to see this potential HW chess match. It would potential big W for Cormier and a good way to get his name in with the mainstream UFC HW's.

What makes anyone think Brock is a good MMA wrestler? Cain and Overeem shrugged him off like he was nothing.

He can't set up takedowns and he's afraid to be hit. He has no business fighting someone like Cormier.

Unless Brock learns how to take a hit, he really stands no chance.

^^^ this

If I were Brock I wouldn't take the fight. Cormier will hit him in the face with one of those crazy punches... and Brock will cry and turtle up on the mat.

Cain is one of the best in the business, no shame in not being able to take him down.

I do hope Lesnar comes back though, not against Cormier but Lesnar against Nelson/Kongo/Nog/Mir III/Bigfoot/Hunt all really interest me.

Even Carwin stopped him with ease until he completely gassed in the second. People just think he's a good wrestler because of his college record and his size when in reality he's not that great. Wrestling in MMA is a different game and he didn't adapt his wrestling to it.

Shane also has good wrestling IMO.

Brock is most likely going to come back and fight someone and all the top guys will hit him hard in the face lol. So he shouldn't fight anyone?

I'm assuming you saw what Cain did to Brock. Cormier is a higher calibre wrestler than Cain is, albeit a bit smaller and older with slower body movement - nevertheless, he's actually Cain's wrestling coach up at AKA. So even if Cain has a faster shot and is a little more agile at this point in their careers, I'd still guarantee Cormier be harder to takedown.

Brock's probably not taking him down inside of the first, and with Cormier's hand speed as fast or faster than Cain's, not to mention his hand seem a little heavier, I would think all of this would amount to a short night for Brock.
