Lesnar Impresses Big Names - Kongo Next

Lesnar makes a believer out of Dana White
By Steve Cofield


UFC president Dana White was at a loss for words in the UFC 87 post-fight press conference when asked about Brock Lesnar. Lesnar handled veteran Heath Herring easily winning 30-26 on all three scorecards.

White said on Thursday that he didn't agree with Lesnar's notion that he should fight the best right off the bat in UFC. Three days later White is a Lesnar convert.


"I'm telling you I'm blown away by his performance tonight," said White. "One of our guys said it looks like he's hitting him with lunch boxes. The guy is a phenomenon. I'll be honest, I didn't think he could come in here with no fights and compete at this level, he proved me wrong."

It sounds like most of the fighters are also on board with Lesnar's potential:


"After that first fight against Mir, I had all the guys come up to me... Hughes, Liddell, Rampage and said this guy is going to be scary in a couple of years. He's a monster. I don't know what guys are going to want to fight him."

The word swirling around the media room was that UFC may try to make a Cheick Kongo-Lesnar fight next.

Personally, I would like to see Brock versus Kongo next. Nice to see that he is getting the attention and respect of some big name MMA veterans.

Maybe I'll be more inclined to acknowledge Brock, if he maybe matures and stops acting like a 12 year old bully, maybe, possibly, probably...

I will CERTAINLY always admire and love Big Nog for his heart and courage alone.

If it comes down to Lesnar vs. Kongo I think Kongo can take it if he comes out with agressive striking. I'm fairly sure he could take out Lesnars legs, they're not very big and they have to support his huge upper body. Just look at cheicks kicks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRwXttFQU5I

If Kongo doesnt come out agressive enough Lesnar will take him down and lay on him. It'll be more of what he did to herring.

It's funny that the previous UFC Champs are acknowledging Lesnar as a threat but not the "I hate WWE and Lesnar was never a real wrestler so I will always hate him no matter what" fans. I wasn't really a fan but more curious on how he would do. BUT now I'm becoming a fan because of all the stupid hate he's getting.

I think Lesnar might be a bad matchup for Kongo. I don't think Kongo can stop Lesnar from taking him down, and we all know what Kongo looks like on his back.

I think it's fair that Lesnar won't have to fight a top BJJ guy so soon again after Mir, but if he beats Kongo, his next opponent will probably be Gonzaga or Werdum, who I think will give Lesnar a lot more trouble.

Or, they might have him fight Shane Carwin. Come to think of it, it's not that far fetched I think, and it could be fun to watch too.

If Lesnar has to fight a BJJ guy again then he should just intensively train his Striking and TDD to stop it from going to the ground...

cock lesnar is a bad matchup against anyone that isn't named Fedor.
