He's a good one dimensional fighter. He knows how to use his size. Thats all.
I hate people that say this. He beat the top contenders, he deserved that title. at that point and time, who was better then him in the ufc? personally i dont think cain was.. he really progressed each fight into what he is now. Dont even bring up the carwin fight. "carwin gassed" "carwin stuffed both of his shots" Thats the first round. FIRST round. Lesnar has GREAT cardio, just like cain. People forget that he was a NCAA Wrestling CHAMPION. I know for fact, as does any other person that has wrestled, wrestling is a very tiring sport, and to be a champion you cant just have O.K. cardio. It has to be the best, u have to be able to go longer then the other guy when the skill level is so evenly matched. So heres my point. Carwin gassed in the 2nd round. thats his fault. Now do you really think carwins physical endurance has increased that much since then? No. Cardio takes months and years to obtain and there is not limit to it. This fight would go just about the same way at this point and time imo. Lesnar would still be able to take carwin down in the 2nd round, no, not as easily, but he would get it. Brock will be back and everyone will see he is the real deal. He will be #1-3 HW in the ufc for a few more years, theres not doubt. If you honestly think anyone in SF can beat him... you need to wake up. There is not a strikeforce HW with wrestling of brocks caliber. I firmly believe he would take any of them down, and beat them there. Reem has the best chance with his size, knees, and bjj to beat brock but even then i think this would be a hard fight for the Reem. Sorry for the rant, im not hating on anyone, i dont favor brock or any of that. I am just stating my opinion and whats logical to me.
