Default brock lesnar

how many of you think he will "fight" again . his wwe contract is supposedly up after wrestlemania. we keep hearing about rumors of him returning to the ufc.

one thing is for sure if hes not in the ufc there is some promotion that will take him , that is guaranteed. so dont be surprised to see him in mma sometime soon.

alot of people like to talk sh*t about him , but give the guy some credit . he took on the tops guys right away .

i realy felt they should have gone against his wishes and given him lesser opponents at first .

I don't think his stomach will ever be where it needs to be to compete in MMA again. His condition is degenerative, and I'm sure opponents will target his midsection. I think wrestling is the safe bet for a longer career.

And your right, got thrown at big names right away. He would have annihilated lower ranked heavyweights.

which is what he wanted. you would think that the ufc would have been smarter about it and put there foot down and said ......... no ... this is how your going to do it ... see how you do with lesser opponents then see how you do against the tougher guys .

lol, that would have been STUPID of UFC. What if they would have put him in with a lesser opponent and he got KO'ed or submitted? There goes everything down the drain.

Plus, when they put him in with Mir at first, it wasn't like Mir was lighting the world on fire at the point in his career. At least when Lesnar lost to Mir, they could say "hey, at least he lost to a former champion".

then .......he obviously couldnt face the stronger guys if he couldnt beat the mid level card guys. mir may have not been the best . but he is a reputable fighter that has had great success .

you mean like he annihilated the higher ranked HWs?? guy was an absolute beast...i still just dont think anyone will give the guy credit and at same time realize just how affected he was by the illness...it made him a shell...ufc 100 brock beats Overeem and hangs with cain much more...possibly beating him at the time too...Cain prob would have won still and would beat him often...

then the AO fight you have brock at a weakened state and AO juiced up...please...overeem sucks...brock would smash him if he was ufc 100 version

Brock was at best a 1 trick pony. He turtled up like a little girl as soon as he has punched in the face hard. The AO on roids remark really makes me LOL he is in the minor leagues compared to Brock when it comes to sticking a needle in the ass to inject roids, you know the thing that gave him his "illness".

The worst part for me watching him fight was the friends I watch MMA with are all friends of Brock.

Apparently his contract is up after Wrestlemania in 2015.

I do agree with this part. He was extremely uncomfortable whenever he was punched in the face, more-so than just about anyone I've ever watched fight. He did not take punches well and didn't have a game plan once he started getting hit.

I would have loved to see what he could have done if he started MMA straight out of college.

I thought he had a glass jaw too. I actually saw his first UFC fight (verus Mir) live. He was on his way to a win if he didn't club Mir in the back of the head.

Try google it is your friend. Diverticulitis is a side effect of steroids.

I like Brock. He took risks with his career and challenged himself to do better. That's the mark of a competitor and warrior. Although he suffered when it came to striking standing and submission, he knew enough to be successful. Personally, I don't think he should attempt a UFC comeback if the illness has effected him that much. He could make a good coach though.

I don't see Brock coming back. He's too smart, and he's smart with his money. Between the WWE years, and some giant paydays in UFC, he's set for life.

Love to see him back in the cage, but I don't think he has much left to prove.
