Brock Lesnar

Postby Amazinz » Mon Jun 04, 2007 10:36 am

I could have stuck this in the UFC thread but I figured there would be some interest outside of the people who normally hang in there. Brock Lesnar had his first professional fight this past Saturday. He fought Min-Soo Kim (former Korean Silver medalist in Judo) and was incredibly impressive!

Just to put it into perspective Kim never made the transition to MMA well and is a bit of a can. Definitely need to see how Lesnar looks when he steps up in competition. But the power he was generating short-arming and the fact that he got a TKO from that position can't be dismissed IMHO.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Kim appears to be a wuss. That being said, Lesner looked HUGE. With the proper training on his technical striking, he could be a force, as it's clear his takedowns will be excellent.

He fought Saturday too. He was knocked out badly. Had to be taken out on a stretcher.

What a terrible fight. :-P

I saw the WEC event from the Hard Rock last night. I think that it might have been their first event since being bought by the UFC? I saw their featherweight champion Uriah Farber. That kid was amazing he almost did a full piledriver on the contender. I think they said that he has defended his title 16 times in a row 8-o

I think that was the first aired event. Yeah Faber is amazing. I've watched most of his fights in KOTC on DVD. WEC just signed Paulo Filho as well.

I was hoping he got the crapped kicked out of him. I hate Brock Lesnar.

At his size with his athletic ability, he should be a force!

I know. I've just hated him since his collegiate wrestling days at Minnesota.

I still think it was stupid he walked away from big $ from WWE, but I respect the guy for trying to establish himself in the sports world.

Lesnar didnt look too good with the Vikings, but I do think he has a future here.
