Technically Brock should be completely all over the place, but the man has outstanding athletic capabilities, he moves like a middle weight. Its unreal, I'm not a huge fan of the man, but you can't doubt his skills.

They both attack like a bat out of hell from the bell, comparison:

Jon "Bones" Jones - 6'4", 84" reach (by the rule of wingspan = height, he should be 76", considering his non HW frame, I would wager he has the longest arms in MMA).

-Strongest clinch demonstrated at LHW.
-Hardest takedown guy at LHW - suplexes, bodyslams..unreal.
-Outstanding balance as demonstrated by his ability to land the spinning strikes.
-Chin somewhat tested by few landed power shots (but he's shrugged them all off).
-Takes advantage of kickers.
-No fear, killer instinct from the bell.

If he develops crisp Lennox Lewis type jabs, and the ability to check kicks/shows that he can throw just orthodox kicks in a multi-round war - he is the one at LHW. I have him as #2 LHW behind Anderson.

Brock Lesnar - 6'3", 83" reach, 300+ lbs

-Greatest 300+ athlete in MMA history- cardio, quickness, flying knees.
-The best TD artist in MMA off the bell.
-Outstading balance.
-If he gets the mount, he holds the position indefinitely with his wrestling acumen and athleticism.
-Ridiculous circuit routine for a guy that size.

Punching is a bit one dimensional, but his straight jab wherever it lands has enough force to knock guys off their feet. Not the precise short puncher as Carwin is, but I think that'll change, if he hasn't been worked on improving his dirty boxing already. Carwin landed about 40 short punches with atleast 30 to to the head in 15 seconds on Super-Mir - I don't know if Brock's there yet with hand speed and precision.
To be that big and move so fast is just plain crazy, I think the only guy that compares to him for having a freakish ability is Alistair Overeem, whether it is chemically aided remains to be seen for sure yet, others than that may be A. Silva as he's lightning fast for his weight class/ Bj penn for flexibility, or Carwin for his scary punching power, but for me BROCK is by far the most freakish guy in MMA.
