LOL, you guys are so cute.
Here's how it'll go: Lesnar takes Carwin down and pounds on him until he wins, the end.
Yes because the only example we have of him fighting another wrestler ended in an immediate takedown where they never got back up, right?
You forgot (well, chose not) to mention that it was a wrestler he probably outweighed by 60 lbs.

For all we know, Carwin will gas and Lesnar will take it in a later round.
How good is a ************ when his conditioning gets questioned because he finishes his fights too quickly?
I know it's slightly different when someone clocks you right on the point of the chin, but don't underestimate the punishment Lesnar can take, I mean, he did get up from this:
YouTube - Brock Lesnar Shooting Star Press At Wrestlemania 19
I mean, it was a botched Shooting Star Press with 300 pounds landing on his neck/head, and it only really stunned him for a couple of seconds. He is made of tough stuff
He's pretty damn good, that's for sure. Still, as much as I want Carwin to win, we don't know how good his cardio is. Looking at the numbers, Carwin has had only 12 min 22 sec of ring time, and Lesnar has had 32 min 34 sec of ring time. Carwin has been in 11 fights, Lesnar in 5.

I think Lesnar is being Underestimated and will probably take Carwin down and pound him into submission... BUT i would'nt be suprised if Carwin wins by a KO.
In other words i keep changing my mind.
Here's a weird prediction for y'all: if Lesnar wins(against Carwin) he'll fight Cheick Kongo (after Kongo beats Mir). Kongo will then beat Lesnar. I know he has NO takedown defence and his ground game is pretty weak but i've just got a weird feeling Kongo will be the UFC HW Champ.
For like two minutes.
I can see him flash KO'ing just about anybody, but never with any consistency.
Seeing how Valasquez just raped Kongo, I don't see him fighting Lesnar before Cain does. Or before Kongo proves he can beat a high level grappler.
Striker with reach, fellas...

Quit derailing us, we're talking about Lesnar.
