Wow I have been away awhile.. Apperently people seem to think Brock is not going to train for MMA at all.. Now I see some of you have seen the light and realize that BRock is an Awesome Athlete. He has also been training in some of the best gyms around.. AS for his first fight.. TRue that guy did not put up much of a fught but brock just totally overpowered him like he was a small boy. And while it was Brocks first time to the dance I understand it was not his opponents first time. As for his amature back ground... He has a record I doubt any MMA fighter can match in college or high school 33-0 in high school and in college... 1999 he finished 2nd in the NCAA Championships and won it in 2000
four-time all-American, two-time big-ten Champion with a record of 106-5 overall in four years of college. Simply put The man is awesome and with some extra training mainly in striking and and some extra submission work... coupled with his freakish strength, (whihc if I understand he has not used steroids but did or does use HGH, human growth hormone, ) he should become a force in MMA UNLESS.... it turns out he has a glass jaw or something like that.. his WWE background is actually not a hinderence I feel and may actually help him long run. Here is how... In MMA a fighter fights a match about once every 3 months.. in WWE while an individual match may not be as punnishing over all as a single MMA fight they do an average of 2-3 a week, along with all kinds of travel. That means performing though many injuries and such that an MMA fighter would not step into the ring with where those in the WWE really have no choice. Now that is not to say anything against MMA fighters but as we all know the potential for life threatening injury in MMA is greater then in WWE ( barring freak accidents and such) So it stands to reason an MMA fighter needs to be 100% injury free. Its only fair to himself, his opponent and the fans... in WWE they can alter the "script" to hide some injuries and still keep the storyline going.. but it does take alot of mental toughness to still go out there in pain and act as if nothing is wrong..
To sum up.. barring and injuries or things like a glass jaw.. inthe long run Brock has every tool needed to be a force in MMA.. regardless of which show he is in at the time.
