Lesnar's bullrush

Not sure if this should be in grappling, or standup...

But after watching some youtube reviews of UFC 87 people seem to really be against the bull rush after Lesnar's big right hand..

I am just curious as the what the correct move would have been in Lesnar's shoes when Herring was rolling back

Well i'm no expert, but sure he could rush in - just not charge at him and put his head down like a bull. He should of tried to get in a dominant position Side or Mount, while Herring was a bit dazed. What he did cost him good position. Either way, I found it absolutely hilarious and I'd love to see him do it again.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

It was a little bit risky, but you still gotta remember, Brock is still new to MMA. He sensed when he dropped Heath that if he rushed and layed the beat down he might be able to stop the fight.

He knew he connected hard and saw him go down, his mind then without having to think just went into a familiar mode of attack so he bull rushed. He has wrestling, played football etc He got really excited that he knocked him down like that and just went back to his bsics and charged in hopes of a win

Believe.

I understand that, but with everyone laughing at it... What really would have been the correct course of action? Obviously it seemed to work out pretty well in the end for him.

If you're looking for the right answer, there are always a few. The right answer, however, is never "charge-right-in." That ends with a knee or an upkick or a submission, if you're opponent is good.

Lesnar should have hung for a second, and then worked to follow up if there was a brief stun period. Sometimes opponents throw wild counter strikes when they're hurt, before the stunned part sinks in. It's good to take a second and not get caught in that.

Watch the Pete Sell vs. Scott Smith fight if you want to understand why.

This dudes got some things to learn. Not one subm attempt with how much he dominated on top. Then after the match he laughes at his opponent.
