How Good Is Lesnar Really?
After watching all of his UFC fights outside of the Herring bout, I'm really starting to think that Brock Lesnar isn't nearly as good as people give him credit for. He's basically been dominated by the newer breed of HW in the UFC. The only fighters he's beaten are the ones that are from the old guard in the HW division. Whenever he fights anyone with talent that's near his level and does more than one thing well he gets destroyed. His skills havent even improved that much from his first fights, still a punch rather than a striker, he gets by pretty much on wrestling, and GnP. The only thing that he has developed is his knowledge of BJJ so he wont get caught like with Mir. Instead of being the #2 heavyweight in the world I see him more as the last of the old school of MMA heavyweights, or even a gatekeeper to the 3 elite HW's in the UFC. The more I think about it the better a Lesnar v Nelson fight sounds to see exactly where Brock stands.
Just throwing this out there as my humble opinion, and I hope he does get back soon.
Do with this what you like.
I've sat through the entire Gracie Sakuraba fight... can I consider myself a hardcore MMA fan yet?
