“Can you see me now? Can you see me now?”

Yes Brock. You are a 280 pound man standing 6 foot 3, 4 or 5 depending on what website we use as a reference. We can see you; in fact it is hard to miss you.

i don't know how any guy with that much talent is bad for mma, sure he's raw but what he's good at he's better than everybody else. so if lesnar is bad for the sport then so is tito, bj or anybody who has ever taunted an opponent, what a joke.

Lesnar is great for MMA. He's got credentials, power, "the look", and a personality that sells like crazy.

I think his showboating in the ring just reflects poorly on MMA because it makes MMA seem like WWE. This isn't pro wrestling and i think you should be respetful to your opponent

I would tend to agree with you the show boating is not needed is all.

Brock Lesnar...

He's no Kimbo Slice...

But he's alright in my books

ive never really gotten the point how someone is bad for mma, MMA is bigger than one person by such a large margin that no one person could bring it down.

To me this is all just someone saying they didnt think he acted professionally.. the whole bad for mma concept is kind of stupid. Who cares what people who dont watch the sport think about the sport?
If i made some delicious pasta and someone didnt try it but said it was a disgusting dish because they took a pepper off of it and just ate that piece, i cant take that person's opinion seriously... he just ate a pepper, not my pasta. One fight/game is not reflective of any sport, anyone who doesnt understand this has no business writing about sports or assessing it to begin with
I hope that made sense.

Yes, he showboated, but it was one match and his first win in the UFC. There was a lot of stress riding on this guy, I think he deserves some leeway on this one.

Lesnar rules, bad sportsmanship makes it interesting.
