By the way, please point out where I said it was easy. Take-downs and body control are certainly technical skills, when you combine them with other things.

All Lesnar has to do is eat one, maybe two, before he gets Kongo to the ground. After that point, Kongo will probably be unable to mount any defense as Brock GnPs him into either submission, TKO, or (in the least likely scenario) the end of the round, in which case he'll just do it again after the break.
Kongo either needs to be able to KO Lesnar with one hit, or work on some kind of monster training program for getting off his back and back on his feet. I highly doubt he'll be able to stop the takedowns from happening.

Come on Foxtrot, you lost this one. Lesnar is not at all technical in some aspect of his game, but wrestling is not one of them. His wrestling is very good. There's a reason he was the Division I NCAA champ, and it's not a lack of technical wrestling.
That said, I can't stand the guy, and was really looking forward to him fighting Carwin, who I thought stood a good chance to beat him. Nog stands a good chance, but I'd still put my money on Lesnar. Velasquez v Lesnar would be a good fight, but Brock's too big and technical to be outwrestled by Velasquez, and Cain hasn't shown any particular propensity to striking that would make me think he as a serious chance.
And Kongo, ****! Are you serious? Kongo??!?! Yeah sure, then maybe he could fight Antonin Hardonk. Really???? KONGO????

Tyga is a more technical wrestler because he's: A. damn good and B. he's a lighter weight fighter. This is pretty much true with all fight sports. If you want to see the more technical fights, you're usually going to want to watch the lighter brackets.
If Tyga was 280#, he'd be a different fighter entirely! Its just a fact of how the human body works. Boxing, Sambo, Greco-Roman etc.
If you want to watch "body control" as a skill, consider that the Olympic talent in gymnastics is typically going to be a 14 year old girl that weighs 115#...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.
