I put this in the genereal discussion since it concerns both UFC and EliteXC.

I know a lot of people dislike Brock and Kimbo for being overhyped, yet inexperienced. If you look at how SOME people rate them thay are overrated (not everyone overrates them though).

But Kimbo, he's a machine, and he will put on some really exiting fights in his career IMO.

And Brock is a muscle meatball who's surprisingly agile for his size and I want to see him wreck some people in the near future.

Not saying they are fantatic fighters, just saying I personally look forward to see them fight. Reeeeeally much.

ya id like to really see them put to a test. if not it make a mockery of the sport saying anyone who is in good shape or a good fighter can sign up and do this. It much more then that... its human chess... but u the human need to be physically above most other humans and know the game of chess aka MMA... so please someone test them before theyh ruin it and this becomes WWE

i would love to see it happen but unless Elite XC gets competative enough to make Dana do a coevent production to set that fight up......we all know how that went last time...!!!!

Lesnar was overhyped, but now after the Mir fight I think people will start seeing him for what he is: A fighter with a lot of potential but no invincible monster that will destroy anybody that's put in front of him. Lesnar is no joke imo, and I think many UFC heavyweights will have trouble with him.

Kimbo on the other hand doesn't interest me much. At least not yet.

I think Lesnar means trouble for any HW who lacks a good sub game, but he needs to develop some sort of sub defense if he wants to be a contender. Plus I don't know how much damaged is his body for all his years in pro wrestling.

Agreed with Brock, and if you didn't know Brock was agile, you didn't understand the hype behind him (power and agility, not just power). He's doing Jiu-Jitsu now i believe, but give it 3 yrs i reckon, he'll be in the top 10, or just put him against Cheick Kongo and bloody up his face, either-or

EliteXC is going to be copromoting with DREAM through ProElite, so that should stir up some interest along with their CBS deal.

I think Brock can mangle Kimbo.

im glad that they put Lesnar in their with a real fighter in Mir not like Shaw is doing with Kimbo and just giving him cans to make more money

we can actually turn Lesnar into a real competitor if we keep testing him and making him work
