Lesnar VS Carwin

  1. Lesnar VS Carwin


    This is an intriguing match-up! They both have wrestling (lesnars is supposed to be better) Carwin is the better puncher. How do you think this will play out? What's going to be the gameplan for each fighter? Does Lesnar avoid Carwin's fists by taking a fellow wrestler down?
    Boy, this one's exciting!
    I want Lesnar as heavyweight champ. I think he has the better package, like him or not. This one may break UFC PPV records.


  2. They both have the same cage tactics and I think Carwin has the better camp. That being said, Lesnar is a much bigger man and a better wrestler than Carwin.

    My prediction: Lesnar wears down Carwin, whose gas tank is still unknown, for 2-3 rounds before capturing a TKO.

  3. i would love to see carwin take this win, but i dont think itll happen, brock is just soo fast for his size its astonishing!

    im a big fan of both and will be happy with the fight no matter which way it ends up.

    i think brock will prob stick to his usual ground and pound tactics and keep carwin pressed up against that cage.

    but also carwin proved hes good off the cage .

    this is gonna be killer.

    to be personally honest i think the rich franklin v chuck will be one of the best stand up fights. both fighters love to throw hands.

  4. Is Carwin still working full-time? Or did he get serious an take a leave to train for the title?

  5. Has this fight been slated yet or is Lesnar still taking time off?

  6. I think this will be Brocks biggest challenge yet because:

    The division 1(Brock) vs. division 2(Carwin) debate isnt relevant because neither of them have wrestled(ncaa rules) in a decade. And remember how much trouble Brock had trying to take down the 44 year old, 220 lb Randy?

    Brock hasnt faced ANYONE with real K.O. power.(yes, maybe Mir, but he's nowhere near the striker that Carwin is)

    Brock hasnt faced ANYONE with a build similar to his and could gas out trying for take downs(again, remember the Randy fight)

    Ring rust. Unlikely that he will be as freakish on fight night due to his long recovery.

    Lesner gets KTFO in the 2nd, then fights Dos Santos on the same card as Carwin-Velasquez for #1 contender.(prolly not, but that would be a helluva ppv!)

  7. As much as I would like to see Lesnar KTFO'd in humiliating style, I think Rodja's reasoning is the more likely outcome.

  8. Truthfully, if Lesnar pulls this one off he is either a master at the gameplan or superhuman. Not only is he coming off a major illness but also coming off a surgery! I just came off minor surgery and getting back in shape is no picknick....the momentum is 100% lost, not to mention any training limitations. So if anyone has a claim to ring rust it sue is gonna be Lesnar. Stylistically, Carwin is a very bad matchup for Lesnar at any time. Especially coming off surgery, illness/layoff.

  9. if Shane can drill him on the chin, roid monkey will go down just like anyone else. knowing lesnar he will probably run shane up to the fence and work for a td the entire round. i really really hope carwin is training hard, he deserves the belt.

  10. Lesnar by TKO in the later rounds or Carwin by KO in the 1st or 2nd. I'm pulling for Lesnar, but Carwin is a classy enough fighter that it wouldn't be devastating. As long as it isn't Frank Mir or Cain, I won't complain too much.

    War Broccoli Lesnar.

    Why not Cain? I think he's much more classy and respectfull than Carwin. There's a long thread at sherdog of Carwin recently disrespecting Lesnar all the while Lesnar training hard & keeping quiet.

    What irks me about Cain is the whole Brown Pride mantra that he has.

  13. My opinion is that major surgery and a life threatening condition has had to of taken a serious toll on lesnar. That puts the odds greatly in favor of carwin who is in top condition. However, lesnar still has a punchers chance early in the fight. I don't think the fact that carwin has ever mad it out of the first round is much of a factor. Just because it hasn't been tested, doesn't mean his endurance isn't there. I wish lesnar could be given a tune up fight before hand.

    I think this whole thing gets blown waaaaaayyyyy out of proportion.

    If this were true, than Josh Koschek, Jon Fitch, Randy Couture, Mo Lawal, Daniel Cormier, Phil Davis, Ben Askren, etc., should be reminded that time away from the ring means your skills do not translate! Not picking on you, but this is somewhat of an irrelevant point.

    They may not compete in tournaments, but they still train in wrestling - this is mixed martial arts, after all - and there is really no comparison between Div I and II with regard to talent. Lesnar is a better wrestler than Carwin, this can be said without much doubt.

    How that will translate to their bout remains to be seen, however. And Randy is a master of the cage, by the way. Once things got away from Randy's cage tactics - the best in the business - Lesnar did not struggle to put Randy on his back.

    If anything, I think it's flipped. Carwin has demonstrated 1-punch KO power on several occasions and Lesnar has not. As the fight goes on, and Carwin finds himself in a spot he has yet to be, Lesnar will be able to use his mass to move Carwin around the cage.

  19. who gave Lesnar this purple belt in BJJ? his wrestling coach? and there is no way he runs a 40 in 4.6 being almost a 300 pound man. also, Lesnar muay thai? ive never seen a single elbow or kick, maybe a half a$$ knee and crappy telegraphed punches. something tells me these stats are self-reported

    Negative. He ran this at the Minnesota Vikings recruitment camp (made the exhibition squad).

    also, Lesnar muay thai? ive never seen a single elbow or kick, maybe a half a$$ knee and crappy telegraphed punches.
    He used a Thai clinch effectively against Randy, I believe. And other than that, he predominantly uses his wrestling. Nobody is claiming he is Chute Boxe.

    Do you really need to do that if you can just bring someone down and pound them to oblivion. He ran a documented 4.75 40 when trying out for the Vikings and that was not far removed from a motorcycle accident that he had not fully recovered from. The dude is just a freak. He also was 290lbs when he ran that time for the Vikings. Carwin has 2 chances he either needs to land that big hand before Lesnar grabs him or he need to hope for a mistake like the one that happened in Lesnar-Mir 1.

    If Lesnar brings Carwin to the floor and starts grinding that bowling ball head right under Carwin's chin and the hammer fists start to fly good night Carwin.

  23. why are all you guys saying he can/will muscle Carwin around the cage and take him down? He tried to muscle around a puny Randy Couture, and look how effective that was. My point is that a guy about as big as himself and equal in wrestling, Brock will struggle to muscle him around and his takedowns will likely be stuffed. That is at least for the first couple of rounds or so, Shane's gas tank has yet to be tested, so that might become null and void in the later rounds....but who knows for sure?

    And yeah the brown pride thing on Cain's chest has me disliking the guy too. He is an American that was born in America....why all the mexican flag and brown pride flaunting??? I can guarantee you this: if a white fighter was flaunting a huge tattoo on his chest that said "white pride" there would be a media frenzy villiafying the guy.

    I think an issue when it comes to wrestling, in MMA in particular, is that people fail to make distinctions between types of wrestling - i.e., people continuing to call Dan Henderson a phenomenal wrestler in the sense of freestyle - or in other words, open cage TDs, singles, doubles and so on - when his Olympic placement was on the Greco-Roman team. This is why Dan Henderson has been "outwrestled" on the mat pretty consistently in his career.

    At any rate, I say that because the only place Lesnar faield to "outwrestle" Randy was on the cage; and that is simply because Randy may quite literally be the greatest MMA cage-wrestling tactician of all-time. Saying that he was unable to manhandle Randy against the cage does not indicate much of anything, considering there are few people on earth who would be capable of doing so.

    But in reality, once the grappling moved away from the cage we did see Lesnar manhandle Randy. We have to be careful in remembering that not all wrestling equates.

  25. At the end of the day, Lesnar brings a bigger positive to the fight IMO. He will use his freakish size, speed, and wrestling to take down Carwin in eerily similar fashion to Mir II.

    Carwin has a shot of course. Those big lunchbox paws of his will make him dangerous, however, Lesnar is truly the freakiest athlete IMO in MMA. That size coupled with such crazy speed and athleticsm, and then just a nasty person overall

    That said, Lesnar via TKO rd3
