Anybody who thinks lesnar can actually roll with Nogueira is completly missing the point of what some are saying here.
Perfect example of what 'we'(me and a few others i guess) are saying : Mirko Cro Cop.
He is a K-1 Fighter, who came in MMA with virtually no background in grappling. He fought sakuraba, herring, Nogueira himself, and except against Nogueira, he was able to do just ok to get out of any messy situation.
Stay in guard, sit straight up. You can be against the best grappler in the world, if you dont have your opponent close enough to make him move in any way or control his body, you are not transitioning or putting on a submission.
Eventually, against Nogueira, Cro Cop was taken down and armbarred in such a Nogueira way, but the point is that Cro Cop lasted 10 minutes against Nogueira, not going to the ground or in dangerous position.
Can Brock do the same? like Damone pointed out, he is improving at a scary pace. He cant roll with Nogueira, but he can learn to know what he has to avoid and how to get out of messy situation.
Will he win? thats a hard question, i personally think its an equal matchup, Brock has a lot of advantages over Nogueira but he also has big flaws or unknown factors that will be tested.
But i dont see where you get that idea that 'most' people think Lesnar can learn submission defense to everything and roll with nogueira..
Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.
