Default CroCop: "I would love to see how he (Lesnar) would react to 2 or 3 good low kicks."

“I must point out that his victory is a defeat for the sport as such. Don’t get me wrong, Lesnar is a fearsome and very dangerous opponent, but I am old school, I prefer skill and technique. This win was a defeat of martial skills. Much of what he achieved in the fight is a result of pure power… Of course, Lesnar has quality sparring partners, is an experienced wrestler and a man who learns very quickly. But he is yet to have a real struggle. He does not have many fights in his career and I would love to see how he would react to two or three good low kicks.”
War CroCop!

That's exactly what I was thinking. Brock was being very cautious with Mir because Mir is trouble when you put him on his back. He executed a great game plan and won beautifully. As for a guy like Cro Cop, Brock would put him on his back immediately and GnP him within 90 seconds.

If Lesner is ALL Power and no skill like Folks are accusing him of why ain't he losing to those that are supposed to be more skilled? It ain't like all his opponents are real small guys!

Because those who are saying Brock lacks skill are just blinded by their jealousy/hatred of him. I've said it a few times on here, "You don't go 106-5, become a 2-time Big 10 Champ, national runner-up, and a national champ in NCAA Division-I Wrestling on just power alone."

lesnar is a beast no doubt ... but the size thing is very important ... think about the GSP/BJ fight ... the nite of the fight, GSP was about 185 and Bj 170 ish .. that is 15 pounds ... and GSP dominated him ... some people say BJ is better technical, i disagree .... he is better in BJJ and that is it .. but that 15 pounds was huge, GSP was able to control him ... now brock weighed 265 at the weigh ins and couture, mur, they weighed 220 and what 235-240? nite of the fight, brock was probably 280 or more ... that's 40-60 lbs ... that for sure is going to play a factor ...

Mirko is just hyping up the possibility of a big fight IF he gets by Dos Antos.

It boils down to fighting, sure technique is important, but you better be sure your technique can conquer sheer size, speed, and talent. God hands out gifts to some people, Lesnar might just be one of those people. Call mixed martial arts, I don't care, but I will call it by it's real name and that is fighting. Right now Lesnar is the best fighter in the UFC's heavyweight class.

Low kicks, Lesnar likes to hit takedowns off of low kicks. Right now no one stops Lesnar from taking them down.

Mirko did give him credit and say he was skilled. He mostly said he has never been pushed.
