And despite all of his geeky homoerotic ink, has beaten the hell out of the UFC's best. Including Couture, who (unlike every other "champion" Brock's faced) is actually worth a **** in the octagon.
But what's obviously most important is whether or not you appreciate his ink.
I'd be interested in seeing Velasquez or Carwin fight Lesnar. Wonder if it'll happen soon.

ther are not tattoos.
they are 'twattoos'.
even some basic cod sort of off the shelf tribal stuff would be a far more sensible choice... but the ones he has...
oh for shame!
There is a difference between pure fighter and martial artist. I really think we need to make a movement away from the douchebag pure fighter to martial artist. I personally believe if you truly want to be a good fighter, you need a martial artist attitude anyways. e.g. GSP, A. Silva, Fedor, etc.
So Greco and savate aren't martial arts? The whole stoic budo schtick isn't universal throughout fighting arts.
From people who have worked with Lesnar and some of his behind-the-scenes stuff, from WWE to the present day, he doesn't seem like such a douchebag when he's not in character. I think he's just gotten way too comfortable with getting people to hate him in exchange for money.
And its worked beautifully. His antics don't seem to be cutting into his revenue stream at all. Maybe the UFC and WWE aren't so different after all.
I kind of like the giant broad sword tattoo. At least it's a little different and sort of goes along with his persona (I am a giant primitive viking warrior! RAAHHR!).
