You're pretty quick on the MMA uptake.... interesting.

Lesner needs awhile before taking on top guys. He's got an incredible background in wrestling, NCAA Champ, multiple All American, etc... but can he fight? We'll see....

Imo step backwards for the UFC hes fought one fight, yeah he is a beast and all that but no one knows what he can do. Remember when that Gannon guy fought in the UFC with only one fight and that was only because he won some fight against Kimbo Slice and this Gannon guy got destroyed? i really think Lesnar whould fight a few more fights before going into the big legue.

Who is this guy? I have never heard of him.
Lesner is known because after winning the NCAA's at Heavyweight, and making it far into the tryouts for the Vikings after walking on the team, he was picked up by Vince McMahaon (sp?) to wrestle in the WWE where Brock gained a legion of fans from 2000-2004. He says he's been cross training MMA since late 2005 and went to Korea to fight in his debut MMA match against some 3-3 guy who was an Olympic Judo SIlver Medalist. Brock took him down and pounded him out in 1 minute.

Freak physique + WWE = Steroids IMO.

But to compete in MMA he will have to be tested and he knows this. I'm curious to see what he looks like coming into the UFC without that and with having to cut to the 265 weight limit... I hear he walks around like 290.

lol his first fight was ****. That's the first time I've seen it.

I was reading today online, that his first opponent has been agreed upon and hand picked by himself. Apparently it's a big name in UFC and whoever it is poses 'significant danger' to Lesner.

I'd like to see him get knocked out, dunno why, I don't really have a problem with him, I'd just find that funny.

Also lmao @ Goldbergs orgasm.

He will be facing the former UFC HW champion and ju jitsu specialist Frank Mir in his first fight. At one point in his career Frank Mir was the s-hit but then he had a motocycle accident and has only been a shell of his former self since then, in his last fight he submitted Antoni Hardonk (sp?)in 77 secs i remember right.

Mir has a ******* awesome ground game and usually subs people in the first round, altough he known for gassing after the first round, so the best shot that Lesnar has is getting trough the 1st round a win a decision.

Where did you find this out?

Sounds a bit iffy, in terms of how challenging it could be for Lesner. Sounds like a bit of an empty win if he gets it, crash considered.

Im not so sure Mir will destroy him cause Mirs cardio sucks, like i said if Lesnars gets trough the first round he might actually win this fight, but i sure hope not i hope he gets his arm ripped off.

It's announced, he is facing Mir. Dumb UFC debut match. Mir will rip off his arm or leg.
BJJ is useless if you can't take a guy to the ground and Lesnar's wrestling is way better than Mir's

I suspect lesnar will push Mir into the fence and pound him

It could be a craptacular fight

There are standing sub's, he can pull guard, or he can outbox Lesnar on the feet. Mir isn't the greatest with his hands but he's had more time with a boxing coach than Lesnar.

Standing subs are a lot easier to out muscle (advantage Lesnar) I doubt Mir can pull guard on a multiple d-1 wrestler.

And maybe he can out box him if they stand in the centre, but if Lesnar pushes Mir against the fence and uses his Grecco clinch to dirty box him, Mir's in trouble.
