I think a Lesnar to Bob Sapp comparison is a little unfair.

Lesnar's, for one, built completely different.

He's also (likely) agressive as hell. Sapp was SCARED of getting hit.

I think Brock is going to plesantly surprise a large portion of the crowd.

(I'm also pretty sure that Kazushi Sakuraba shook his "pro-wrestler tag")

Agree to the above post. It is completely unfair to compare Bob Sapp with Lesnar. Lesnar is a wrestler and a very good one at that. People should stop comparing him with Sapp.

There is nothing similar with these 2. I am sure Lesnar, given a year or 2, would give anyone in the HW a run for their money.

He is built like a monster, has amazing wrestling skills, his conditioning is going to be great..he is going to be a real good force in HW division.

It will be interesting to see how he gets on, i just hope their not paying him too much.

No doubt they'll give him a couple of easy first fights to build him up.

Weve never even seen his standup, for all we know it could suck dog doodoo, what about his ground game?

All we saw was Brock run a small Korean man into the ground and whale on him like an abusive husband. And people are already putting him up against the likes of Fedor and Couture and Nog.

Anyone can tackle someone smaller then them to the ground and wale on them. Lesner deserves to be right at the bottom of the heap like every noob and work his way up, not get top 10 or 20 shots cause he beat Min-Soo Kim.
That's why I said give him 5 years. He's a natural athlete.

Yes I know that, and thats exactly what Im trying to say, theres no way you can suddenly throw this guy in the top 10 mix, he needs MUCH more time to ascend the ladder.

Who is throwing him in the top 10 mix? I certainly never said that.
