    Mir is also not necessarily known for overwhelming KO power, either; at least, not the type of KO power that is going to take that mammoth down. I am confident in Lesnar's abilities and, unlike many others, I really like Lesnar's mannerisms. (The real mannerisms, not the "in-ring" persona.) The fact is, he is unbelievably humble: he drives a Geo, trains like a madman, and respects the sport. People focus too much on his WWE days, and not enough on the fact he is a once in-a-generation athlete.


  2. pollitics aside he deserved a shot because most people knew he could win easy.

  3. And when the UFC signs Fedor none of this will matter.

    I know what you mean, people have bitched and moaned about Brock's attitude, but he is a salesman, in the same fashion other fighters are. The guy trains like a freak

    Definitely. I honestly find his attitude refreshing; he is a classic heel to be juxtaposed against the quiet and noble Rog Nog (eg). He makes things interesting.

  7. Everyone talks about fedor. Everyone talked about cro cop and hendo....look what happened to them.

  8. I don't see Fedor near a UFC cage. Right now if Brock wins, it is his belt for a while. Eventhough he is 32, he is a young 32 and is still learning and growing which is scary.

    Overall I am psyched for this card, as it is very deep.

  9. Fedor destroyed Tim in ... what.. 26 seconds. Took AA down in one round. Yeah, cro cop had a bit of hype but he still has a knockout cannon set of legs. He was just better in the ring than the cage. Plus he's more of lt hvy and just won't go down a class.

    Go watch some Fedor fights and then come back and tell me where you think his weakness is and what Brock brings to the table that will topple him.

  10. Fedor will probably never go to the UFC and that is just a sad fact of life.

    LOL when some1 said Brock drives at Geo whether its true or not its hilarious to imagine.

    Haha, it is. Check out his UFC all-access. He drives a Geo home from the gym.

  12. what a douche. How does Mir brag about a 90 sec win when he knows that if that retarded @$$ judge didn't suspiciously pull Brock off, Brock might have had a 30 sec win over him. I understand a victory is the bottom line, but mediating variables to that degree aren't aspects you shrug. Mir also talks like he's the only one that's progressed since his fight with Brock. Does he think Brock stopped training since his Mir fight and stopped progressing himself? Sure Mir whooped on Nogueira, (quasi-props) but that was a lame duck version of Nogueira he fought.

    That said, Mir does look pretty good, physique wise, his shoulders looked solid, but I hope he gets crushed.

    Everyone still talks about Fedor and he keeps winning.... so that was a bad example. Cro Cop and Hendo, yeah.... I have no defense (and Cro Cop was my boy).

    I had the same discussion with Mullet elsewhere. He's humble in real life, but he still instinctively sells his character, so I can see where people who base their disdain on the "can you see me now!?!" moment. However, in real life, he's humble, works like an ox, has heart for what he does, and realizes charisma is marketable.

  15. I don't care who wins. I hope it's a good fight and last a couple of rounds. Looking forward to it.

    Mir def. does look like he is in shape for this fight.

  16. Fedor's injuries will end his career far before a "peak" in the ufc. Hendo, wandy and cro crops better days are behind them. Id like to see cain velasquez, manhoof and cyborg come over.

    You would think protein shakes alone are less superior to real meats but none the less interesting...

    I think Dana mentioned that he'd be interested in signing Barnett is he beats Fedor... but he didn't mention wanting Fedora

    Holy fcuk! Cyborg has one heck of a chin I'll tell you that much, damn.

    That dude took more shots to the face than Jenna Jameson.....

  21. I would really like to see Brock win even though I like Mir a lot! Then I want to see Shane Carwin beat Cain and then I want to see Brock vs Shane. Imagine those 2 big mofos square off.

  22. hhahaha i like cain a lot but carwin is so fuking sick. that little punch of his could knock someone out. the HW's are more exciting now but i feel like if they lose 2 in a row they leave unlike other classes. i hope out of this next season of TUF some good HW's stick around.

    Im suprised noone talks about that fight more often, what a war.

    Difference is Fedor is the better fighter. Plus Cro cop is not the same crocop that fought in Japan, plain and simple. Fedor is an amazing fighter, and has plenty of matches to prove it. The only thing that irritates me is all kinds of people jumping on the Fedor wagon after watching the affliction fights and saying hes the best, yet they knew nothing about him before then or in pride. Ive followed Fedor back in pride and at the sambo/combat sambo championships,.. the guy is a machine, and I dont think he is hyped at all.

    I cant remember off the top of my head when, but there was a "supposed" contract sign and meet a while back between Dana and Fedor, years ago. I think one of them pulled out at the last minute. But,.. who knows...

  25. Funny thing is people will still hate Brock even if he blows through Mir with brute force and little technique. But if its close and say he wins or loses but shows some ground defense or jj or something that shows he's got more going on in his head other than SMASHY SMASHY, then more people will walk away from this fight saying man I wanna see him fight again. Kinda like (not really all that similar in form) Jardine IMO. I'm kinda looking forward to seeing him up against TS because he showed some heart in his last fight against Rampage. Seeing him fight a crazy hard and arguably close fight has won me over. Now I'm not saying Brock doesn't have heart, but I'm hoping to see a mixed martial artist.

    As far as Fedor I think from the sound of it Dana is tired of hearing his name but if and when Affliction is a thing of the past then Dana would be stupid not to bring him in. He can fight Kimbo Slice in Dana's back yard or something.
