I hope you've eaten a perfect diet and never suffer from this self inflicted disease.


As for how good is Lesnar?

He has less experience than Phil Davis. I think he's pretty good.

If i eat loads of sugars and get diabetes.. shit happens my fault. If i smoke 20 a day and i get lung cancer .. shit happens my fault. If i drink a bottle of whiskey a day and i get liver disease .. shit happens my fault. etc etc etc

As for his skill, again he wont be getting any more wins before he retires.

He ate nothing but red meat for 20 YEARS! he has said in interviews its vitamins from greens he has not had in years! because all he ate was red meat!

all i'm saying is 'you reap what you sow' 'You are what you eat' etc

So one fight is a pattern now? The only man to dominate him is Velasquez, who has dominated everyone he's fought.

He weathered the storm and beat Carwin (the hardest puncher in MMA history IMO) fair and square, which is more than what any other top HW can say.

Granted Mir, Couture and Herring are old guard, but they're not scrubs either and he dominated them badly. Mir is still rated a top 10 HW btw and has KOd Kongo and Nog recently.

I guess Lesnar's next few fights will show if he was a true champion or not, but losing once to a machine like Cain is not proof of being overrated.

THIS ^^^^^^^^

Lesnar will probably never beat Cain, JDS, Carwin or a few other top HWs but his wins against Mir, Couture and Herring weren't luck. The above 3 are 3 of the most experienced HWs in MMA and Brock wouldn't have beaten them unless he is a genuinely decent fighter.

Brock is just some over grown RED NECK american who has been built by years of HYPE and dear meat! the 2nd he is now paying for! im glad every school aged kid you need a varied diet not just red meat! eat your greens brock or you'll get ill .... oh wait...
1. Lesnar fought the toughest opposition available, always. You can't claim he's "HYPED" or that him being champ wasn't earned.

2. Lesnar doesn't rely on a "wrestlers chance".

3. Werdum is the only one who has fought a top 5 UFC heavyweight and he was KO'ed in the first round. If anyones overrated it may very well be the Strikeforce guys.
