There will be a lot of very disappointed wrestling fans when Lesner faces his next opponent.

Remember you read it here...my prediction is this. If the UFC cares at all about maintaining any sort of credibility they are going to feel the need to put Lesner in with an opponent who isn't a complete joke. And when that happens Lesner is going to get knocked on his ass...quickly. There is no way that this guy is conditioned to take a serious, real punch from a heavyweight (anyone who fights knows what I'm talking about). Not after the minuscule amount of MMA training that he's had, no way. When it happens his collegiate wrestling experience isn't going to help him, his WWE career certainly inst going to help him and his limited time spent sparring definitely wont be enough to have prepared him for getting hit full force.

Be prepared to be disappointed my friends. Despite some questionable decisions this isn't staged and choreographed. it's real and the guy with the most entertaining persona isn't guaranteed the win in this organization. Personally I cant wait to see his ass get sent back to the WWE. It will be very amusing

I dont think Dana will put him in the Octagon with a top 10 heavyweight because of course he would get destroyed but the risk goes the other way to. if they put Lesnar against someone like Arlovski, Lesnar is a big powerful guy and what if he got one lucky punch that would damage the UFC's credibility much more than alowing Lesnar to just mature as a fighter slowly. Besides if Dana just wanted to crush Lesnar he would have only signed him for one fight.

Well for one thing, if he did get knocked out he would not be going back to WWE as that wasn't his last employer.

2nd, the only difference he has between alot of these guys is amount MMA fights. To say he hasn't been hit full force is kinda silly, when everyone is sparring and training for a fight, they are "maybe" going full force with alot of gear on...so thats equal playing field...only diffence would be amount of times he's been hit full force in an actual fight and we all know alot of guys have competed like 5 or 6 times without even really being hit.

In terms of Brock taking blunt force trauma to the head, not really worried. Youtube his botched Shooting Star Press, the fact that he got up after a few seconds and didn't break his neck is amazing in itself.

Whether his pro wreslting fights are scripted in terms of outcome, its still them taking chair shots to the head, picking up other 250lbs guys and flopping on the canvas repeatedly.

Would you believe most of the damage these wrestlers do to themselves is just the simple flop on their back, even by spreading out their shoulders to absord. Its equivalent to being in a head on colission at 45mph, do that 20 times a night...

Brock will loose at some point, but I also think at 30 he can be a force..he's got time to learn, time to develop, as long as they do it right, give him name but middle ground fighters, just like they do for Houston Alexander and Roger Huerta.
