It's not like it would be unheard of. Rulon Gardner beat Yoshida after like three months of MMA training. The guy's an excellent wrestler and he's strong as hell. There's a good chance he can end up on top and GnP for the win. Sure, he knows jack about submissions. Neither did Gardner.
Fair point, but just from an experience angle I still think someone like Silvia or Couture would beat him, at least at first. He's worth keeping an eye on, though.

It looks like this guy is serious. Excerpt from wikipedia:
"On April 28, 2006, Lesnar appeared inside the ring after the final match of K-1 Hero's Las Vegas and has since signed a deal with the K-1/Hero's. He is currently training with Minnesota Martial Arts Academy under Greg Nelson, coach to UFC Lightweight champion Sean Sherk and with University of Minnesota Head Assistant wrestling coach Marty Morgan. Brock Lesnar announced on August 12, 2006 in Las Vegas that he had joined the K-1 promotion. His first fight was on June 2, 2007 on the K-1 Dynamite!! USA show against Choi Hong-man of Korea. After the match was announced, Royce Gracie then announced that he would serve as Lesnar's trainer. In his first official MMA match, Brock defeated Min Soo Kim (Choi Hong-man was pulled from the match) by submission (via strikes) in under two minutes."

STFU sign a contract and fight. Hopefully we won't have to hear him speaking in the third person for very long. A couple ass whippings should make him remember his pronouns.
Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

if you're the UFC, this is just win win.
Scenario #1: Lesnar talks a big game, gets in the cage, gets his head caved in, and the UFC gets to tell the world how real and bad-ass they are, not like that fake WWE ****.
Scenario #2: Lesnar gets a 3 fight contract, beats respectable opposition on his first two and fights for the title on his third; brings in a whole swack of carry over fans from WWE and gets **** tons of publicity for the UFC.
Either way, the winner here is the UFC. If he keeps talkin ****, so much the better, it'll be that much sweeter to see him lose (re: the ballad of Tito Ortiz). I'm curious, throw his ass in the cage and let's see what he's got.

He's got a big ego for a dude with a penis on his chest.
Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.
His heart was visible, and the dismal sack that maketh excrement of what is eaten.

The main thing that irritates me about this is that the guy's obviously a major juicer. But it'll be overlooked to make the almighty dollar.

Feed him to fedor. It would give fedor credibility with american audiences who aren't familiar with him.
Not like fedor should need credibility, nor should people be unfamiliar with him, but fuggit - it's win win. It shuts brock up by having someone pwn him hard... and makes fedor look like a ubermensch to the wwe-come-mma crowd.

If he hasn't it would be a repeat of his match with Carmelo Marrero, with maybe a bit more gnp.

Didn't an MMA magazine (can't remember which one) have Lesnar listed in an article titled "Five Men Who Could Defeat Fedor"? If I remember correctly, the other guys were Josh Barnett, Gabriel Gonzaga, "Bigfoot" Silva from Elite XC (Near 300 Pounder that can do FLYING KNEE STRIKES!), and Randy Couture. They even interviewed Lesnar for that piece, but he came across as much less of a blowhard there.
