How Do You Feel About Brock Lesnar
January 1, 2009 11:07pm CST
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 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.

I do not like him either, and a lot of it has to do with his attitude, too. I can not take awa from him the fact he is a big dude. He is powerful But that does not make someone cut out for MMA. He thinks that because of his size he is unbeatable and I think that the last couple of fights he has had has brought him down a little bit, and it should have. His size got him that title fight. His size won it for him. let's go doz santos!!

Brock Lesnar is a beast. I personally do not like him in the MMA because he is not cut out for it. The only thing he has going for him is the fact that he is so big and can pretty much dominate anyone. In his last couple of fights we have seen how much he is lacking in fighting skills. But he is still fresh into the sport, and as with all who come into it new, can stilllearn a lot. I will never like him, though. I persoanlly feel he is just an overgrown bully and a smartazz and that is not what I like. His size is what makes him so hot in the UFC. I hope dos Santos beat his azz in this up coming fight! GO DOS SANTOS!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
