    Why I think Carwin will Beat Lesnar

    Up until now, no one has been able to avoid Lesnar’s takedowns because of his size and sheer strength—Mir was not able to do so, twice, and Couture was only able to hold him off for a short time during their bout. Carwin is known to be just as strong as Lesnar and should be able to match power for power versus the WWE star. When his size and strength fails to down Carwin, it is likely Lesnar will try to turn this fight into a striking war of which Carwin is the superior on his feet.


    Though both fighters are powerful strikers, Carwin is able to combine his strong blows with technique. Lennar has the tendency to “push” his punches in that he leans too far forward which makes him vulnerable to his opponent’s counter attack. Lesner has yet to face such a physically strong striker—Mir and Couture could not match him blow for blow, nor could Heath Herring. He is accustomed to being the physically dominant one in his matches and when this fails, Lesner has very little to fall back on.

    Fair enough. It remains to be seen who's genuinely stronger though. Who has Lesnar been working with for striking?

    But what happens if the fight goes past the first round? Carwins cardio is unproven and I doubt its as amazing as Lesnars, who has inhuman cardio for a man his size. I hate to say it, but my prediction is Lesnar by TKO in round 4 or 5. Lesnar puts Carwin on his back and wears him out :(

    Lenar has and always will have his wrestling to fall back on. His credentials are well documented and his ability to implement his strengths have bought him success so far.

    Carwin is strong no doubt, better striker no arguement. However I dont beleive that Carwin can neutralize Lesnar's wrestling. Nor do I beleive that Carwin is physicaly stronger then Lesnar.

    Lesnars striking though I doubt will ever be world class, could be enough to close the gap and get in close. If he doesnt there is no doubt that Carwin will put him to sleep.

    Looking forward to the fight, but I think both men will need to fight tactically and implement a very good game plan.

    I don't think it gets that far either way. Carwin will cave Lesnar's head in, or Lesnar will take him down and pound him out.

    I'm taking Carwin, myself. Standing, it's not even a contest. His boxing might not be the prettiest, but there's no denying that if he hits you clean, you're finished. Lesnar landed a big right to Herring and he went flying across the cage. Carwin landed a big right to Gonzaga and he dropped like he'd been shot. Lesnar's chin is untested, at best.

    While he almost certainly doesn't emphasize his wrestling the way Lesnar does, he may be just good enough to not get manhandled like everyone else so far. Besides that, Lesnar's two biggest advantages over everyone have been his freakish size and strength, and Carwin is close enough, if not equal, to bring it about even on that.

    Carwin has the secret weapon though....GREG JACKSON. Guaranteed all he is gonna be training is takedown defense and knocking Cock Chestnar the **** out. Carwin by 1st or 2nd round KO/TKO. I would love to see Carwin win through some crazy sub though, like a 280 pound flying armbar. A man can dream can't he?

    This is truly a battle of the beasts! I cant wait.

    Some heretofore incalculable parameters are going to be pushed here and some previously unknown quantities of hulkness are going to be established.
    Namely the strength of Lesnar's chin and/or Carwin's durability and wrestling defense.

    Could possibly be a sight to behold if it lasts awhile.

    Two Freeking Train Wrecks headed for each other at amazing speed for heavyweights.

    Did I mention I cant wait?
