people are so damn stupid, it boggles my mind. You are a lunatic man, way way off the deep end. Making arguments out of things people never said acting like the mmaforum dictator, get a life. I know we aren't supposed to insult forum members but somebody needs to tell you to just shut up with your nonsense, stop putting words in people's mouth and shut up.

Sorry I didn't realize someone else typed this for you.

Honestly, i'm not sure what has got you so riled up. I don't recall acting like a dictator, I just asked a few people to provide some evidence to support their arguments. And once again instead of answering the question you just flip out and insult me.

Who knows if the out come would of been any different.

Reem just seemed so much more aggressive and wanted to get the job against Brock.

Perhaps the steroids gave him that aggression to go in and finish the job and do it quick against Brock. Keeping his hands down against big foot was not over confidence , it was foolishness. The fact that he was not on roids meant his ferociousness and aggression and willingness to end the fight quick wasn't there. You could even argue that the fact he was not on the roids meant he was scared to go in and try to finish because he deemed that as too risky. Jacked up on roids may have given him the mental state required to go in aggressively and finish Bigfoot with out fear.

It's possible that because he wasn't on the roids, he decided to play safe and win the comfortable decision because he did not have enough confidence that he could finish big foot.

Overroid fans, please don't get your knickers in a knot.

Roids didn't help him keep his hands up. That's why he lost. Overeem was doing exactly what he should have been doing at first, so if that's how he acts without roids then I don't see the problem. Overeem needed to avoided a brawl, and keep picking him apart. Like you said he got foolish and dropped his hands. Had Overeem come in super aggressive he might have gotten koed in round one.

Frank Mir bulked up to over 265 to try and match Brocks strength and Brock made him look like a Lightweight. To think a man much smaller man than Brock (Cain) could throw him off at every takedown attempt is pretty ridiculous before Brock lost a foot of his intestines.

You do realize Brock was a national champion wrestler fighting much larger men than Cain right??
He had a hard time getting Randy down and when he did, Randy got back up quickly and he's a small old man.

Frank Mir never bulked up to 265 in the rematch. he bulked up after it. Mir stuffed all of Lesnars takedowns but one and Brock let him up. the fight hit the mat after Mir rolled for a kneebar in the first rd and then threw a jumping knee while Brock had a single in the 2nd.

He never would have out-wrestled Cain at any stage.

I'm sorry but this isn't a myth. I've never been a fan of Brock's nor do I think he was ever the best heavyweight in the biz particularly, but the Brock that came into UFC was an absolute monster who was in peak physical condition - he was strong and bloody quick as well.

One almost fatal illness and having half your colon removed clearly will impact upon what physical condition you are in. Lesnar will never be a great striker, nor good at taking a shot, but when he was in the peak of his health, he looked a lot harder to stop when taking someone down.

The Lesnar that faced Overeem was a blobby, podgy mess who was far from in the peak physical condition that he entered the UFC in. I would've liked to see if Overeem could've stopped the takedown shot and GnP of a Lesnar who had all his strength and quickness. I never said anywhere that Lesnar would've won nor am I a Lesnar fan, so its interesting to see people just jumping to conclusions and making shit up just to suit their own rants.

Hows your temp ?

LOL at calling the Brock that fought Reem a "blobby, podgy mess". If anything resulted in his loss of muscle it was being further removed from his steroid use during this WWE days. But he was still a very large, strong and lean man. He wasn't like flabby Cain, who whooped his ass. Brock still had his physical strength, you are the one that assuming he didn't. There really wasn't much difference between Brock that fought Mir and Brock that fought Cain. He was still a very large, very strong man that was very raw in terms of MMA skills.

Thats interesting, now kindly point me in the direction where I mentioned anything about Brock's condition when he was fighting Cain ?

I'm not assuming that he didn't 'have his physical strength', I'm hypothesising that it may have been depleted somewhat by TWO major illnesses.

We are hypothesizing that Brock was simply outclassed in terms of skill and that strength had nothing to do with it. Goes both ways and no way to prove it one way or another.
