Lesnar's Secret Weapon

From ESPN: the magazine.

by Ryan Hockensmith

Quote:
When the Randy Couture/Brock Lesnar fight was announced a few months ago, the immediate breakdown was: Lesnar had age, size and speed on his side. Couture had experience and submissions as his advantages. Wrestling? Well, we'll call it a draw, even though Lesnar had a far more accomplished college career.

Lesnar by no means lacks confidence—he thinks he's going to win every fight, including against Couture. But he downplays his jiu-jitsu. "Oh, I'm not in Randy's league yet there," he says. "I still am just a meathead wrestler trying to learn this stuff."

Lesnar actually points to a different secret weapon for this fight: training partner Marty Morgan. After 16 years as Minnesota's top assistant wrestling coach, Morgan, the 1990 NCAA champion at 177 pounds, resigned his staff spot two months ago to go work at Minnesota Mixed Martial Arts Academy. Specifically, the former American Greco-Roman Olympic wannabe came in to train with Lesnar. Even more specifically, Morgan brought with him intimate knowledge of Couture, a former training partner as they both tried to make the 1992 and 1996 Olympic teams. "Marty is a huge help—huge," Lesnar says. "He's great to have around just because of his wrestling background. But throw in his experience around Randy, knowing how he thinks and battles, and I think Marty is a major asset for me."
At least Brock seems to be surrounding himself with the right people to help him succeed, all else aside, the wrestling battle should make this fight very interesting to watch.

I dont think a wrestler who worked out with Randy 16 years ago is a very good secret weapon.

Super, just what Brock needs, more emphasis on wrestling. Jesus, if he went to a top camp he would be unstoppable. I sure hope Randy talks him into coming to his camp after this fight.

I really doubt Brock has the flexibility to excell in Muay Thai.

thai leg kicks, thai clinch, knees, and elbows require little flexibility. He might not be throwing head kicks but he could certainly get the fundamentals down.

He's not built for thai boxing at all. Look how tiny his legs are in comparison to his upper body. He'd have to train ALOT to even become moderately good at muay thai.

Maybe they dont require alot of flxiblity for the average person but the average person isnt carrying around Brocks muscle mass, I would personnaly eat my hat and post the video on You Tube if Lesnar perfomed some Muay Thai knees ala Anderson Silva.
