Luiz Alves: “Brock has no gas for 5 rounds”

Rodrigo Minotauro and Junior dos Santos’ Muay Thai’s coach, Luiz Alves is more than satisfied with the victories on UFC. Back to the gym, Luiz focus on Rogério Minotouro’ next fight, against Luis Cane. In exclusive interview to TATAME.com, the coach also talked about Vitor Belfort’s victory, using the Karate against Rich Franklin and the possible fight between Minotauro and Brock Lesnar. “That’s a really tough fight to Rodrigo, but it’s not impossible... Against Brock, I think we have to be worried about the first round. Standing well, we’ll grow a lot on the second, start to speed, push, and Brock doesn’t have gas to fight five rounds”, bets the coach, in the interview you can read here tomorrow.

It is great that he thinks that Lesnar doesnt have the cardio for 5 rounds.

But...

In the real world, Big Nog's face would look like ground chuck after the first round and he would be unconscious in the second.

Eh, Alves obviously hasn't seen the Lesnar training videos, or he just doesn't realize who Lesnar trains with, I guess.

I wonder what basis he is making this statement on. Especially since Nog is not the fastest paced guy.

That's fine and dandy and all, except when you're around 300 pounds you simply can't have the gas tank like the lighter weight people do. Your body simply doesn't scale in that fashion. Does he have a great gas tank? Of course. 5 rounds? Probably not.

Agree. Maybe Brock can keep pace for five rounds, but that is very unlikely. Nothing against Brock, i enjoy watching him fight, but it is extremly unlikely that someone with that kind of mass to be able to maintain for tweenty five grueling minutes.

People here are seriously overrating Lesnar. The guy seemed gassed after 2 rounds with Randy and looked completely out of breath after the Herring fight which was basically almost all LnPing. People also seem to think of Lesnar as an "unstoppable takedown machine who could easily take down a wild hippo", but the fact is Herring stuffed a couple of his takedowns. Why does no one ever bring that up?

Because he wins in decisive fashion. When his flaws outweigh his strengths, then people will bring it up.

Fair enough, but you still can't overlook the fact that his conditoning is not THAT great as people make it out to be.
