I would pick Gonzaga to win. Gonzaga is a big guy himself, has some decent hands and some nice kicks, along with a great ground game. I think if the fight stands Gonzaga will take any shots from lesnar and land many of his own. I also can see Brock being stupid enough to use his wrestling against him, which he will get submitted by doing so.

I'm thinking we see this fight by next June, Lesnar is going to be busy beating Randy and rematching Mir through Jan. This would be a good fight though, and who knows by then his game may very well have progressed enough for him to beat Gonzaga. Physically he has the tools to beat anyone, it's experience he lacks more than anything else. Book it Dano.

lol, tyvm mate, +rep

The guy has power and wrestling at this point.

Meanwhile Gonzaga has power, and World Class BJJ.

So if Brock keeps it standing he has a chance but he won't be able to finish the fight without going to the ground where he doesn't stand a chance.

People keep talking about the Herring fight and how people where picking Herring and now that he lost they aren't giving him enough credit.

Well I picked Herring because I thought Lesnar would GnP to much and gas. He proved to me in that fight he's alot smarter then I gave him credit for and that he has good control and power.

But people are acting like beating an expierenced fighter makes him great. Herring hasn't been impressive in a long time.
GG is way too slow and plodding, Lesnar will maul him same as Herring. Only by that time, he will have a few more tools at his disposal.

Lesnar is way more powerful and explosive than Gabe as well, they are no where near equall. They are simmilar sizes, but athletically they are worlds apart.

But the best part is getting someone cornered to the point that they start saying things like "A high kick to Nog's head? Meh..no biggie, any slack jawed ass clown can do that" By the time you get this deep into any thread the arguments are never really any better then "lucky punch" v. "good punch" and "He beat him badly" v. "He mauled him"

Well I'm off to go watch some more fights I've never seen. Anyone heard of this "Matt Hughes" character? I will let you know if this highlight video is good.
I'm asking you what else did herring do in that fight besides a kick? You do know herring didn't win right?

No, Herring didn't win afterall he was facing big Nog. And Heath got tooled for most of the rest of the fight. He's been tooled by the best multiple times. But at the same time, he has hung in there with the best (can't recall if Fedor finished him or not). But that kick was an impressive shot against an impressive(to understate it) fighter. So Heath fought Lesnar as a good striker, he can land some shots especially against a 1 - 1 MMA fighter. And when I say Brock mualed Herring, I'm not talking about the severity of the beating so much as the decisiveness of the victory. The only time Herring was in control of his own movement was when Brock wasn't touching him. There have been a bunch of maulings in MMA, I have never seen someone so completely controlled and nullified. And Heath is one of the biggest opponents he is going to face. Skill aside, the more massive the opponent, the harder they are to control. So moving up to 2 - 1 the way he did against Herring impressed the hell out of me.

If that was directed towards me then the answer is yes. I started watching UFC after my brother showed me Griffin vs Bonnar. That is my fav fight to this day. Yes I am a huge Lesnar fan partly cuz I was a big wwe fan when I was younger but also cuz im excited about him help in bringing the hw division back into prominence

Saying herring is a good striker cause he landed one kick on nog is excessive. Jake O'Brian did basically the same thing to herring that lesnar did, minus some of the gnp. Herring wasn't able to land hardly any shots on O'Brian.

On the topic of the Herring/Lesnar fight yes it was a beating. So was the O'Brien/Herring fight. Herring is an okay striker who cant defend the takedown worth a crap which is why the UFC gave him to Brock. It was the safest fight they could give Brock. Heath couldnt handle O'Brien who is a smaller and less accomplished wrestler than Brock so they he couldnt handle Brock, they wanted him to win. That doesnt mean anything when it comes to a potential Zaga/Lesnar fight because Gonzaga has such a different skill set than Herring that it would go down completely different.
