Brock's next opponent?

Tow fighters with very little MMA experience are getting alot of press and forum attention: Brock Lesnar and Kimbo Slice.

Brock has a billion fans from his WWE days.

Kimbo has a million fans from his street thug YouTube fights.

People keep saying "Kimbo is seriously getting into MMA" over and over again.

If he's getting into MMA why is he fighting a guy who has never fought MMA?

It's great that he's getting trained by el Guapo et al, but until he fights someone with a grappling background, muay thai background or BJJ, don't call this an MMA match.

Unless Kimbo learned the takedown and how to do ankle locks, this Mercer fight is going to be a stand-up strikers match which has no "Mixed" in the equation of MMA at all.

At least Brock Lesnar's first "MMA" match involved the mount and GnP which isn't something a pure wrestler is used to (don't even bother telling me how his WWE days gave him striking experience).

In fact, wouldn't that have been a better first MMA match? Kimbo vs. Brock?

A gifted, athletic striker with no prior MMA experience and lots of public exposure trained by Bas Rutten and Shawn Tompkins

VS.

A gifted, athletic wrestler with no prior MMA experience and lots of public exposure trained by Royce Gracie and Greg Nelson (Sherks coach)

Who takes that matchup?

Be honest people.

they are giving Kimbo a can for the same reason they gave Brock a can....to make them look good in there first fight...but honestly..Kimbo is going up against a tough dude...a lot tougher then Brocks first fight...

but from MFS and the reports Bas is giving...it seems like Kimbo is taking this for real..and training hard..which if so..I think he gets "some" success in MMA...



as far as Brocks next opponent....give him SAPP or BUTTERBEAN or one of those big dudes...that dont pose a HUGE threat...haha GIANT SILVA

Or, here's a CRAZY idea!.........instead of a stupid-ass freak show fight, why not give him a regular heavyweight? How about someone in his own weight class, of comparable experience and comparable skill level, you know, like any other MMA fighter would get?
The fact he's a former pro wrestler shouldn't mean a damn thing. Let's see him against a decent opponent this time, so we can see how good he actually is.

They'll probably give him Hong Man Choi.

I'd like to see Brock fight Kevin Randleman, personally.

Come on it was/is their first MMA fight. Everyone fights a can on that level because they are a can themselves.

He should fight Gary Goodridge. Gary is older now but still, if he can beat Gary Goodridge, he has done something in MMA.
