“[Brock needs] A lot [of preparation time]. Because Nogeuira’s very dangerous on the ground. Brock would have to outwrestle him and take him down. And be very careful that he doesn’t extend his limbs. Brock hits like a sledgehammer. He hits so hard and he’s fast. One thing we’re really working hard on is not pushing his strikes but launching strikes with crack and pop at the end. To have boxer-level hands. Also, his knees are devastating. I would not want to get kneed by Brock. His knees are huge. Heath had no idea that Brock was going to come out and throw a kick at him. As for a match with Nogueira, I have no idea what the UFC’s plans are. I know Brock has two more fights. Brock is such an incredible athlete. He could rise to the occasion. For me, he’s fun to train because he’s so ambitious. Brock is completely coach able. Some fighters I’ve worked with, you go for a week and you end up holding pads for them. With Brock, it’s, Can you teach me? Can you show me? Can you show me? It’s worth the time to go there.”

– Former mixed martial arts champion and current trainer for Brock Lesnar, Erik Paulson, shares his thoughts with MMAmemories.com

it's obvious brock isn't ready for nog seeing he lost to mir, not YET that is. i still think lesnar is the next big thing in the sport, i've never seen such a juggernaut even if he is very raw.

Brock doesnt have the BJJ skills but he is a wrecking ball. The man is an absolute powerhouse. Anyone he fights wil have a lot to deal with. Noguiera would have to get ahold of him in the early rounds befopre they gets too sweaty and cant secure subs as easily.

well no shit brock needs a lot of preparation before a fight with big nog or even couture.

but matchups between couture vs lesnar, or big nog vs lesnar shouldnt even be in talks right now. When brock is only 2-1, he needs more fights to even be in talks about fighting those two.

i disagree. i think he has proven he is a physical phenom and that he has the tools to give any HW trouble. whe you dominate HH like that you have earned the right to be in such talks.

Speaking from a point of view I'm sure many share-

It's just frustrating as hell that this is the case. Everyone has to know that his skillset is lacking. He's a physical freak of nature and because of that he will be accelerated past all of the hard working great athletes who have put their time in punching the clock training for years upon years. He's got the wrestling and the size that are going to carry him.

I've seen people hate on Tim Sylvia because he wins based on size. I've always defended Sylvia because he put in years upon years of effort when the sport was in it's toughest years and he's not exactly a natural athlete. Brock gets to come in fresh off less than a year's worth of training, make 250k a fight right off the get go and fight the best fighters in the world and stand a decent chance at beating them. Something doesn't settle well in me with that. MMA has, to me, always been a voice for technique and hard work vs. size and aggressiveness. To see Lesnar ruin that (even though he does have wrestling technique) doesn't sit well.

Perhaps I'm just biased against him because I think he's a mental midget, though.

he will do to MMA what Semmy Schilt has done to K-1. only difference is, there are guys like Fedor and Nog that will always have the ability to defeat the size advantage so it is not like he will turn out exactly like Semmy did.

Exactly, and I don't have to ask you what your opinion on Semmy Schilt is.

Why?

He just dominated one of the top 5 fighters in the UFC's HW division, and he was destroying the current #1 contender before getting caught in a sub. Is there any logical reason for believing this? He's proven he's near the top of the UFC's HW division so why should he not even be considered for talks about fighting the top fighters?

What does his total number of fights have to do with his skill level?

I dont think that just because someone has trained alot longer than lesnar, they shuld automatically get a shot before him. just because they have trained longer doesnt mean they are better than him. it isnt anyones fault, that is just the way it works. some basketball players can go straight to the nba and some cant. its just the way it is

No one is saying that he shouldn't.. I'm only saying that the circumstances suck.
