I guess everyone is different.
I know I'm risking major neg rep here, but honestly Lesnar isn't that great without his size. If he fought someone like Hong Man Choi he would lose because Choi is like a giant Chuck Liddell who is a lot harder to hit.

Personally I'm probably one of the best wrestlers on the forum but I understand I wouldn't be last 5 minutes against a real MMA fighter because even if I take them to the ground they will submit me.

Forum Bets: 2-0

Well I was waiting to hear Kurt's professional opinion on the fight, cause it's so relevant.

- A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
- It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

See you Space Cowboy...

I don't really like Angle but I think it's a shame he didn't get into mma right after his Olympic win.

I watched a show on his training for the Olympics. It was intense. 1 day off per month. Fireman carries up hills that looked like San Francisco. He had the discipline to train that is for sure.

I don't hold his opinion regarding who will win in high regard though. He's stated he thinks his wrestling alone would be good enough to beat the top mma fighters. I don't think he appreciates the fact that it's a fight and not a wrestling match.

I am concerned about Lesnar winning via L n P though.

Hey, understood.

Couple things though that make all the difference. Brocks been training MMA for a couple years now, and he's much faster and stronger than you if you're a heavyweight.

I know that wrestlers used to have a hard time at UFC7 and 8.., but we're not really in that world anymore. More importantly, it's Brocks strength/speed/size and the fact that hes a quick learner, that make him so dangerous. The fact that he's an NCAA champ just gives him a great base to build on.

Edit: and Hong Man Choi, hahahaha... give me a break.

Got respect mad respect for Angle. After all, he did win the gold medal with a broken neck for Christ sakes. But his body is just too broken up, i doubt he'd ever be cleared to fight in the Cage.

If Kurt chose to fight MMA instead of going to pro-wrestling, then he would've been a solid fighter. Dude is dedicated. But now, he's insane and broken down. Hell, he needs painkillers just to take the trash out.

So Kurt has weighed in on who will win, and this matters because? I really want to know what Rowdy Roddy Piper, George the Animal Steel, Hulk Hogan, and the other wrestlers from youth I can't remember think. Do grown men watch professional wrestling? I don't really know why some guy who won a gold medal and decided to fake fight should matter. Wait you guys know it's fake right.
