Thread: Brock vs. Fedor Arguement

I would be willing to put a reasonable sum of money on the proposition that running into Fedor with a dump truck would not result in a KO.
That being said, the longer Lesnar trains the better chance he will have of beating Fedor simple because Fedor will get older and Lesnar will get better. I would love to see that fight some time in the next 12-18 months and would definitely bet on Fedor to win. Brock wouldn't be the first monster he's fought.

I'll wager a bet saying Fedor's body has had an easier life than Brock's, too.

Really? I had the impression that Fedor had 8-9 years on Brock. Are they that close in age? If that's the case then Fedor will never lose to Brock. Holy ****... He didn't spend a couple of years in a pro-wrestling meatgrinder either.
So yeah, if the age difference is only 2-3 years then Brock is fucked.

if this fight doesn't happen soon, I predict that Brock will be found dead from a roids-attack, alone in a hotel room-old rassler style. The clock is ticking.Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

Fedor has only faced four fighters with serious wrestling ability in his career.
Matt Lindland - was 40 pounds lighter than Fedor and still had him off the ground before Fedor grabbed the ropes to defend the takedown.
Ricardo Arona - was 30 pounds lighter and dominated the wrestling, spent most of the first two rounds mounted on Fedor and lost a decision because RINGS was retarded.
Kevin Randleman - is made exclusively out of fast-twitch muscles and concentrated failure, but still almost killed Fedor with a suplex before getting subbed.
Mark Coleman - literally did not train at all during the periods in which he fought Fedor. Still dominated the takedowns and had Fedor's back with both hooks, before eventually getting armbarred.
Brock's wrestling credentials are on par with Randleman's and only slightly behind coleman and Couture's, and he has a sixty pound weight advantage. If Brock comes out intending to take Fedor down and keep him there, there is nothing in Fedor's career that indicates Fedor will be able to stop him. And given that Fedor's only subs from the bottom in the last ten years have come against people who literally did not train submissions, Fedor being able to armbar Brock is far from a foregone conclusion.Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.

Mark Hunt was able to hold Fedor down. With his **** wrestling and his fat gut. Brock has extremely good wrestling. Fedor doesn't. Brock has the Hammer-Fist-of-Death (C) and would be allowed to elbow Fedor, something he's never had to deal with before.
Brock via DEATH.

The 'legal elbows disadvantage the ex-Pride fighter' argument seems to overlook to fact that a guy whose career was highlighted by vicious ground and pound would be even more vicious with the use of his own elbows.
Now, whether Fedor could put Brock on the ground remains to be seen, but if he did, that's the way I see him beating Brock, much moreso than by armbar.
