It's just sad that so many new fans are going to judge the sport based on this incident. A well earned DB of the Month, IMHO.
I personally don't approve of Lesnar's antics, but then again, I've never been a fan, so not much really changes.
Having said that, I can't help but feel that some members of the Martial Arts community, who perhaps took up martial arts due to being bullied in school, see Brock as their worst nightmare - the schoolyard bully who they can't defeat by virtue of their training because he is bigger, stronger, and now has comparable skills. I can see how that would be demoralizing.
I have to disagree here. "Frank Mir had a horseshoe up his ass" is far to silly a comment to be taken as a serious insult. Lesnar was just playing to the crowd, after all his WWE fans are what makes him such a unique draw. In the language of the average american "I'm gonna get on top of my wife tonight" translates to "I fought this fight for my family rather than so I could go to the club and get laid." I applaud Lesnar styling himself as MMA's heal. Everyone loses in MMA, but heals keep their fans even in defeat where faces are quickly forgotten. As for that jab at budlight, it was just plain hilarious. I look forward to Lesnars next fight and more of his trademark oratory. You guys are taking this far to seriously and missing out on the of fun.
sigh. what a night to have the cable tv break on me. i'd actually paid to watch this fight, only for the broadcast to die two hours before the ppv. Now I have to lookup shitty internet video sites for it, oh and i positively cannot wait for the gloating from this Lezn0r/Kimbo fan i know. I completely agree with and support this month's choice.
I lost money last night and had to get a phone call from my brother gloating...**** you Lesnar
Don't forget to add that Brock is a bully. Why isn't there a super-heavy or unlimited weight class? The weight differences between Brock and his opponents are huge. This type of disparity doesn't happen in other weight classes. Wanna know why? Because it's not interesting, not competitive, and not surprising to see someone with an approximate 20% muscle-weight-advantage defeat his opponent.
Gone are the days of Royce fighting dudes that are clueless about ground techniques. Today most UFC fighters are well rounded. There aren't many veteran fighters with big holes in their game. When knowledge between competing fighters begins to even out, you can pretty much be assured that a bigger guy has an advantage. However, a much bigger guy will have a huge advantage.
Brock is only going to get better as he has shown with each performance. And soon, Brock will be able to beat a guy like Fedor, if not already. However, again, this type of fight would be a hot pile of bullshido because of the weight difference. You wont see a 155 lb. BJ Penn against a 205 lb Rampage because its bullshit. I'd much rather pay $50 to watch Randy and Fedor go at it than to watch Brock the Bully fight Fedor.
I sure hope a freak class is made where monsters like the Bob Sapps and Giant Silvas of the world can fight against Brock. Granted those fighters aren't known for their talent, but they WILL bring their own lunch boxes to the table.
I hope someone punches that fucker, Lesnar, right in the mouth and immediately proceeds to lay on top of his wife... Goodness knows I wouldn't do it. She's one ugly bitch.
PS. **** Brock Lesnar
Hmmmm... Weight classes matter a lot, but its not going to displace ability, skill, athleticism and experience. We've all seen K1.
I sparred a guy that outweighed me by 40 lbs. thats a good 20-30%. I weigh 180lbs.
He was alright, he's in the same skill league as me. Going at it pretty hard. I'm a bit better though. And you know what, I think I'd have KO'd him.
No doubt his size helps him, but brock lesnar doesn't suck THAT much.
I don't think he'll ever beat fedor. I don't think he fights nearly as smart as fedor.
You make a solid point. However, know that Brock's mma skills are improving exponentially.
He only threw clean punches last night and was turning his hands over compared to his ugly, amateurish hammer fists of fights past. Anyway this is taking us away from the topic.
Brock is a douche and it is noted that douchebaggery will always be recognized at bullshido. I will continue to hate Brock even if he takes my seed in his half-albino face.
