I definitely think its the best it ever has been. I'm just saying he would still have some very interesting fights.

How can you not? I don't see other Heavyweights do flying knees and shit.

Brocktober Forever, pre-illness Brock stomps Overeem and Cain.

Not really. He was a polarizing and entertaining guy and I'm sure Dana misses him because he could've contributed a lot of profit for the UFC in the future. But even in that aspect, that void has pretty much been filled by Chael Sonnen.

Why does it matter? If they win the belt they win the belt.

I miss Brock. Every Lesnar fight was an event worth watching. His fights were all entertaining as ****, he's an entertaining personality, and a hell of a fighter. Sure, it turned out he didn't take being punched in the face very well, but he was getting punched in the face by savages like Carwin, Velasquez and Overeem. I don't think anyone would enjoy being punched by those 3. Yet, despite his flaws, he still recorded dominant wins over Herring, Mir, Couture and a superb come from behind win over Carwin. I was a fan, still am a fan, and would definitely pay attention if he came back!

Yes and no. I thought he was awesome until I stopped being in denial that he can't really fight, at least not to the elite UFC level. I did like him a lot when he first jumped on the scene though.

If he came back I'd still root for him, but I'd adjust my expectations.

I would have liked to see Brock continue fighting mma. There are only a handful of HW's that could beat him.

I actually met Brock recently. He was in Calgary for a promotional event and stopped by our office. Super nice guy.

The reality though is Brock doesn't love fighting. It was a job for him and once he made some $$$ and realized he would only be the 4th or 5th best HW his interest was gone.

I won't be surprised though if we see Brock come back for a big $$$ fight at some point. I also won't be surprised if we never see Brock in the octagon again.

It is what it is.

Still bums me out that we didn't get to see him face JDS, I'm pretty sure JDS would've won but still... Interesting fight

I wouldn't mind having him back in the UFC but only if he shows up to get paid and fight not just to get paid which is what I think he did in the Reem fight. I mean really who thought he could beat Reem standing? but thats what he tried to do besides one half hearted takedown.

Oh and if they could magically make it so he had never got sick that would help to.
