Err, dual citizenship? Is/was one of his parents Canadian? Born there?
Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
That's not a requirement here.

And capped off the evening with an F5 of the Premier, setting up a much anticipated no disqualification match at Wrestlemania.

I remember the mystery of Brock - how do you defeat this titanic sack of **** with the physique of Bob Sapp but actual fighting skills? Unfortunately, Carwin answered half of that puzzle in their fight and Velasquez then went to press with the answer: punch the **** out of him, because he doesn't deal well with getting hit.
The Age of Lesnar, brief though it was, is an important part of MMA heavyweight history and is today mostly notable for its brutal ending when Lesnar faced a slightly smaller but far more well-rounded opponent. I see the end of the Age of Lesnar as also marking the end of the one-dimensional elite fighter in high level HW MMA.
