There are few fighters where I genuinely count down the days to their fights. Brock was one of them. Can't deny you were all excited to see him in the octagon!

I like Brock and the fact that he brought the HW division back. Part of it was timing, who knew he would show up around the same time of then unknowns Carwin, Cain, JDS, Struve, etc? At the same time, without someone as polarizing and visually intimidating the HW division may not get it's credit. To a lot of casual/average fans, seeing Lesnar get beat by Cain sent a message of how bad that man really is. It places some perspective on skills vs size.

Also I was a fan of Lesnar and the fact that he made Mir's face look like he was in a second motorcycle accident.

EDIT: I wouldn't say I miss him, I appreciated him and what he did while he was in the UFC.

I think Brock had done what he could do and wasn't going any further, save some scraps with the middle tier of the heavyweight division. But what would have been the appeal?
Both for Brock and for the fans, he's the guy that needs to be at the top or near the top.

I still think if Brock had started MMA training after he got out of college, he would have been an absolute beast and might have reigned or been near the top for a long time.

Oh, so I guess I don't 'miss him', to be fair, he didn't have enough fights for me develop that sort of clingy relationship.

I can tell you this much, Zuffa misses him. A heavyweight showman, with a monstrous physique always draws. It helps to have some talent as well. Such as, effective strength, decent takedowns, and some nice caveman ground and pound.

I had my fill of him. He was cool. But he was highly overrated.

I don't see how he was that entertaining? I mean other than the 2nd Mir fight where he went nuts afterwards what really did he do? He went to hunt in the woods for months. Sat in a hospital bed for months. And we hardly heard from him. He showed up to the Cain and Reem fights and got manhandled. As he said nothing. He wasn't that entertaining.

I would have to say I do. He made a lot of interesting fights. Sure his standup was laughable and he hated getting hit, but he was such a monster wrestler he was still hard to deal with.

I couldn't care less if he would never hold the belt again, he would still make the division more interesting.

I think the division is more interesting than it has ever been. And better than it has ever been.

JDS, Cain, Overeem, Cormier, Werdum, Big Nog, Struve, Hunt, Roy, Barnett maybe, Bigfoot, Mir, possibly Jon Jones moving up.
