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.PrettyBoyFloyd said:Who is this guy? I have never heard of him.
Where did you find this out?Brutus said: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.
BJJ is useless if you can't take a guy to the ground and Lesnar's wrestling is way better than Mir'sJohnnySparta said:It's announced, he is facing Mir. Dumb UFC debut match. Mir will rip off his arm or leg.
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.goju-joe said: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
