It's the same sh*t over and over again...Brocl is owning guys on the ground - left and right.
We already know that.

I'm still waiting for the day when a fighter who saw him train will say: "Brock is KO'ing his sparring partners left and right - he's a BEAST!!!"

He has this tiny-HUGE problem but it looks as though he is ignoring it. Maybe it's a diversion and he is indeed training instensively in the stand-up, but i'm affraid it's not the case...

.



BELIEVE!

Brock did say that he changed up his training at his gym after the loss, didn't go into specifics but that could only mean one thing, right?

Seems like instead of working his standup he wants to get his ground control to the point where he doesn't need it. He must be very confident in his TDs.

I'd imagine for JDS especially that he'd rather take the fight to the ground than stay on the feet. Even if he were to work on his stand-up significantly, he'd not be in Junior's league... that'd simply take more time. Hopefully, however, he's working on mixing things up a bit. Brock can throw some nice leg kicks and knees when he wants to. But again, for JDS especially, I think he's smart to work on and solidify his ground game, as that's where he's most likely to win.

Wasn't that the exact thing we heard from Bisping's camp before the Wandy fight?

Personally I don't listen too much to what goes on in training, what I look at more is what kind of training he's doing rather than how well he's doing in whatever skill he's working on. Is the fighter training to be more well rounded or is he doing the same old stuff, that's what I'm looking at.

He doesnt have time to gain the stand up ability to compete so why not work with his strengths like i always say.

Brock still needs to work his stand up though. He doesn't need to make it his gameplan for the fight but I feel like he still needs to work on it or else it will remain a glaring hole.

None of this is really impressive, when I read he armbarred griffin 3 times in 2 mins I thought wooahh, then saw it was a straight arm bar which I feel is perhaps a more strength move and obviously thats something Lesnar does not lack. Looking forward to his upcoming fight though, could be epic.

Did any of you see the first episode of TUF? The first fight at the end...the guy with great stand-up just got dominated on the ground for a UD. Perhaps the JDS Lesnar fight will go somewhat the same?
