Let him celebrate.

If fans wind up hating him for it, he'll tone it down over time. Of course if he loses a few more times, maybe gets his face beat on a little, that will make him shut up too.

But all-in-all, there's a lot of post-fight celebrating going on. (screaming, dancing, jumping on the cage).

i thought it was a little insulting to HH but i'am not gonna bitch about it. i Thought it was the best fight of the night next to gsp vs fitch. I would like to see gsp wear a little more shorts though.

Look at it from his (Brocks)side. He's in his home state. It's his second fight in the UFC and he completly trampled HH. Who is a very expeirienced guy, with lots of skills. If it were me i would have been celebrating to no end. Thaqt said he should have let the final seconds of the fight tick down to the bell before goin ape. I say congrats and I want to see him fight Cain Velasquez. I want to see Brock eat a few punches. Just to see how he takes em.

I don't see where Brock performed the Whinyass term "Lay N Pray" once in this fight. He continued to punch Herring from all angles.

All I saw was Herring turtling up. Protecting himself and offering no offense or defense of any kind. Just hoping his opponent would go away.

from sherdog:

"You can't throw up a post-fight fist pump without punching another elite level MMA fighter with a post-fight trademark. Chuck Liddell (Pictures) screams. Takanori Gomi (Pictures) surfs on the turnbuckle, and Eddie Alvarez (Pictures) back-flips off of it. Thiago Silva (Pictures) and Josh Barnett (Pictures) have the market cornered on throat slashing. Yushin Okami (Pictures) shows off his swordsmanship. Gabriel Gonzaga (Pictures) assails cameramen. This truncated list doesn't even account for those who are prone to spontaneous post-fight celebration like BJ Penn, who is liable to lick his opponent's blood or dead-sprint to the locker room after a W, or Anderson Silva (Pictures), who has dressed up in full Moonwalker garb and given us rhythm guitar lessons after kayos. All of these actions are just as much overtures to the soul of pro-wrestling as those of Lesnar, who is still chided for his WWE wrasslin' tenure."

I saw a guy wrestle for 15 minutes. It was good wrestling but that's all it was. He had multiple opportunities for armbars, RNC's and other submissions and he would move from sidemount to full to back to side.

I do this in grappling sessions too. It's called being way stronger than most people you are grappling. It isn't pretty and it isn't necessarily technically sound, although Brock's wrestling is superb that is all you can really say. He did "not too much" of anything else. I see him but he has to add to his game. Being bigger and stronger only works for a while. Being multiply skilled works for along time.

IF he can add a better stand up game and some submissions---don't have to be BJJ--on the ground, he'll be very very tough to beat. For those of you who know, it is hard to submmit guys that wide. My shoulders are pretty wide and it can be dificult to put in a triangle on me, I can't imagine Brock's width.

all i can say about brocks antics is by all means go apeshit with ur celebrations, just don't blatantly disrespect your opponent, unless of course its Tito.

I really didn't expect Brock to finish Herring at all. Even Fedor's GNP didn't finish Herring after taking a ridiculous amount of it and it was the cut that did him in in the end.

Yeah it's hard to finish Heath off.A lesser man would have tapped after getting pummled that much.Their was few times it looked like Heath's whole body just went limp.
