Randy outwrestled him when you put it into perspective, hmm, so did Kongo outwrestle Velasquez if you put it into that perspective?

If Couture could make Lesnar decide not to try the wrestling route, don't you think Fedor could? And once Lesnar decided to stand with Fedor instead of try to outwrestle him... Most likely scenario? Lights out for Lesnar.

Question for you guys: How does Lesnar win the Fedor fight? I've asked myself this many many times before I post in these threads.

Lesnar could possibly try to take him down and smother him to a UD? It's five rounds...

Lesnar could possibly try to take him down and smother him and GnP? Fedor is probably the most dangerous HW off his back in the world.

Lesnar could possibly try to stand and bang with Fedor? Mir scared Lesnar standing, Couture got the best of many exchanges, and Fedor is lightyears ahead of them. Of course there's "puncher's chance," but Brock does not have proven KO power.

I'll try to back down more from Lesnar vs Fedor threads, especially now that the Lesnar hype is finally getting checked more.
Ill give you one easy scenario, did you see when brett was on top of Fedor near the cage, if that was Lesnar i think it would be over.

I think Fedor has a striking advantage, but altho he has these newfound KOs it usually isnt his style and he will be giving up alot of reach to guy with KO power himself. I would give the edge to Fedor but i dont think its overwhelming.

Brocks smothering days lasted all of one fight and i think alot of it was inexperience and wanting to go 3 full rounds to get more experience. His GnP can obviously be brain damagingly brutal.

Its in a cage, i think thats the biggest advantage for Brock, if he can find himself against the cage with Fedor i think he can win.

I also disagree that Brock was even going for TDs and being stuffed constantly by Randy, i think he felt content to squeeze Randy on the cage, do some damage, wear him out and get a late takedown to seal the round (you do agree Lesnar won the round, right?). I dont think Randy had control in that fight at any point, he fared ok in the 1st round but it was clear he lost that round and Brock was gaining confidence. Again trying to poke holes in Brocks performance or call it unimpressive is VERY similar to trying to do the same the other night with Fedor, a close 1st round that Fedor pulled out (in fact he looked to be in a bit of trouble for a second, something Brock never has been in his entire career as of yet) and then a big punch that seals the deal.

lol.. Khov you usually make sense but you're way off with your "Randy outwrestled Lesnar" argurment tbh.

You can spin it however you want, but Randy did NOT outwrestle Lesnar.
