Wrestling =/= fighting?!? WTF?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.

Sorry, I've watched fights in high school that go the same way. It's really not that technical.
You saw a high-school fight where one guy downed and beat another. The guy on bottom wasn't a BJJ black belt and former UFC champion, was he? Because, you know, it might take some technique to do the same thing to do a guy with that background.“Most people do not do, but take refuge in theory and talk, thinking that they will become good in this way” -- Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, II.4

When struck, grab. When grabbed, strike.

Randy Couture shouldn't even be in Brock's weight-class, but since there isn't a super-heavyweight division...I guess that's a moot point. I thought that ground-wise, Couture did decently against Lesnar, but weight was a definite factor. He could barely pick him up off his feet towards the end of the first round.

I'm sorry, I'm not changing my opinion of Brock...it's not happening.

This is going to be just like the early UFCs. You know, stupid grapplers (before they learned that had to crosstrain) getting KOed before they could get into range for a takedown.
Okay, seriously, you must smoke up more than me.

Actually, I'm interested in the heady stuff everyone who assumed I didn't know Kongo was a **** grappler must be toking. How's the swamp grass, Josh?
But yeah, that was kinda the crux of me choosing him. I think Brock will lose so fast to a striker with a reach advantage the grappling of either will be a moot point.

Besides, Kongo's wrestling is so bad, Brock could start his shot literally from the other side of the octagon and still get him to the mat.
