How Do You Feel About Brock Lesnar

I know that a lot of MMA fans don't like Brock Lesnar. I personally don't have a problem with him wanting to have a career in mix martial arts. May people feel he's a mockery to the sport because he was a pro wrestler, but I think they're forgetting that he wrestled in college so he does have some experience. He may not be the best fighter, and he's not the power house Dana White hyped him up to be, but he's still decent. What's your opinion on Lesnar?

I believe Brock brings a new dimension and attitude to the game. Other fighters would now start to think on how to overcome such traits. Although as of this writing he already lost the title, he will start to evolve to be a more complete fighter. And because of his entry, fighters also evolve on the strategy they use to win.

Brock Lesnar has what it takes to be a successful MMA fighter. He needs to evolve to be a dominant fighter. He needs to improve his stand-up game, submission defense, conditioning and technicality on the fight. This guy has the potential. He just needs decent and proper training and sky is the limit for this guy after that.

I don't like Brock Lesnar but it is not because he was a pro wrestler. It really seems to be because of his attitude of how he believes he can win without nearly as much experience as his opponents. Of course you could say, but look, he beat Randy Couture, but his age was already catching up with him. Another reason why I hate him is because he got a title shot in his third professional fight, with his only other UFC fight being a loss. This purely exemplifies the commercial aspect of the UFC, and jumps out at you. It really perturbs me because I want to pretend that this is all one hundred percent real, but this kind fake rigged-ness sort of follows what you see in professional wrestling. Therefore, you could say that despite the fact that Brock Lesnar wants to prove that he is legit, his entire ere of acting and fake fighting still follows him.
