Fedor would have his hands full with Lesnar thats for sure. If Brock got on top of him, I dunno if Fedor could get him off. He would def take alot of punishment on the ground, possibly even cause a late stoppage. Fedor would have to keep his distance and keep the fight standing.
Brock would either wear Fedor out and control him on the ground with his 50lb weight advantage and eventually get the stoppage.
Or Fedor would weather Brock's early storm and catch Brock with a few bombs and stop him.
Ive said it for years. The guy that will beat Fedor will be a big strong wrestler with good top control, that can stay out of submissions. Brock Lesnar is that man. I think he is a nightmare matchup for Fedor. I just think Brock's size would be something Fedor wouldnt't be able to overcome.
But does Dana realize what Fedor has done. I dont care who you fight, or how you win. But to have 33 fights and never lose, is RIDICULOUS! For him to mention Frank Mir and Cain Valesquez in the same breathe as Fedor is an insult. Fedor wins fights, and most of them never even get last 2 rounds. The man is usuallly giving up a size advantage in every fight. He is 5'11 230, he is really a LHW that has gone undefeated in 33 HW fights. In my eyes thats why he is p4p the best fighter in the world. Anderson Silva is 6'2 218, and beats up guys that are either smaller than him or are similar in size. That just isnt as impressive as Fedor beating EVERYONE he fights, no matter the size.
I propose a fight between Silva and Fedor to see who is the p4p best fighter at a catchweight of 220.
I just dont want to see Fedor's legacy ruined, if he fights a man 50 pounds heavier than him. Because win or lose against Brock, he is the best p4p fighter ever.
good post. But dont just say his size because then you get everybody saying "fedor beat guys as big or BIGGER then brock already"... its alot more then just size, it's his skillset and crazy unheard of athletism and freakish strength all together that make him a unique threat to Fedor and no, Brock isnt comparable to Randleman or Coleman in their primes, he is a different animal, a real life genetic freak. Make no mistake, he always liked to fight even when he was in WWE he still trained wrestling and stand up. Ppl think he is alot greener then he really is in terms of skillset, make no mistake, the only reason Brock Lesnar didnt go to MMA instead of WWE was $, the $ just wasnt there in MMA at the time, its too bad, imagine he started in MMA right outta college???
BTW This post in no way is saying Brock would win or Fedor would win, but i know that Brock is 100% unlike anybody Fedor has ever faced and is only getting better every training session, every round, every fight. Ppl think he is a big SOB but when it comes to learning MMA he is a humble, very hard working guy, he knows his size and strength alone arent enuff to stay at the top, i fully expect him to get some BJJ skills, more confidence in his leg kicks and knees and some better high/low combo takedowns.
