when Randy started the game was different though..

MMA is way to advanced now to start at an older age..

Nothing's wrong with what you say, but whether he'll have a brighter future than Brock or not will also depend on his ability to learn different disciplines from now on, his natural skills as a fighter, mentality, etc. I'm pretty sure Brock would take it now but in 2/3 years it could be very different. It's hard to tell now because we haven't seen him fight yet but we'll have many answers on Saturday night.

Ok man, i might get blasted for this but Lashley was on the roids in wwe, he was WAY to big..

Did you see hes pecks? not natural

last i heard was that he was sacked because when he got injured, he lost all hes size and mcmahon wanted to push lashley as a monster but couldnt..

lashley and lesnar are two different body types man, Lesnar was massive and "maybe" on roids, lashley was massive due to roids..

Shogun is my homeboy.

Lashley will do ok but not as good as Lesnar.

He doesn't have the same background and is a bit older.

Although he's training at ATT which is a better gym then Lesnar trains at.

Almost everyone in the WWE does roids, and most all of them hint at it, even Lesnar when he says he "was living the dirty life."

Lesnar without roids is still an athletic freak of nature, Lashley is just a large guy who juiced and got even larger. Lashley does have a good mentality though, wanting to learn as much as he can before he rushes into things. Time will tell, but I'm not expecting much, nor am I excited.

Lesnar wrestled as an amateur at HW though before Lashley started proffesional wrestling he was an amateur wrestler at 185 pounds, thats a lot of muscle juice.

Lashley is not the next Lesnar, he isnt as strong, fast or as accomplished as an amateur wrestler, dont kid yourself Lashley may do alright for himself but Lesnar is a physical freak of nature and what he has accomplished in a very short ammount of time is phenomenal.

Blah blah blah...everybody dissin the man about being on steroids.

Like I mentioned int he other post, cant the man jsut work hard on his body in the off season?

Brock Lesnar is gettin demi-God status attatched to him (for what reason I dont know) and nobody is questioning his steroid usage....he get an automatic pass.

So why doesnt Bobby Lashley get the same benefit of the doubt?

i actually don't think it is when you look at it for their case. I mean, Lashley is just one of the bunch it seems there....that's fine and he'll get alot better....but Brock has alot of his own personal coaches that only train Brock Lesnar...he flies in however he needs like he's done w/ Comprito for personal lessons in bjj and has attained purple belt status in like 2 years...which is crazy....

thats one of the few tradeoffs people fail to recognize w/ big camps....whereas brock seems to have alot of the resources of a big camp (high level coaching, not as many sparring partners tho), but has it all focused only on him

I agree that Lashley could quickly be grabbed by Dana if he wins his fights, if only to put up a superfight match between him and Lesnar. That would be sweet in all honesty.

That would be a huge money maker for the UFC. A card headlined by Lesnar and Lashley. Also, as a bonus, no UFC fighter gets knocked off by a former pro wrestler, thus keeping the image intact
