No big surprise. Now everyone knows Lesnar doesn't like to be hit, and he's going up against the divisions best striker (Carwin is the strongest striker, not the best) and everyone is starting to doubt him.

I don't like Lesnar and I love Dos Santos, but I won't count Lesnar out. Never count someone of his size out. I do think it will play along the lines of the Valesquez fight though.

Looks about right to me. Maybe even a bit conservative. After his Striking" display in his last fight Brock should definatly be the dog here.

I don't see why it would be such a big surprise. Lesnar's bigger, stronger and has superior wrestling.

guess ill have to bet now on JDS to make some money off him

or wait til Lesnar hits about the 200 range underdog and put a bit of money on him so its a win-win for me

edit: whats up Sparky? hammertown represent

I am a big fan of Lesnar. He has grapefruit sized nuts for taking this fight. That being said, if he gets the take down, it could be over.

However, we haven't really seen dos Santos' ground game. Plus, JDS is no small heavyweight. He is completely shredded. He could pull some crazy escape from the bottom and ground and pound Lesnar. Or he could just get taken down and get the snot beaten out of him, who knows. That's why they still have to fight.

Also, one thing a lot of people forget: Speed has as much to do with force as mass. If JDS weighs 20 lbs less but is swinging them things twice as fast as Brock, he is probably generating more force.

I wouldn't call Dos Santos the HW divisions best striker. Best uppercut-ist for sure, but all around striker, no.

...and when you're punching off of your back, that force is negated.

Brock's not dumb. He's going to do everything in his power to put Cigano on his back.

Don't get me wrong...I'm a JDS homer and I'll definitely be rooting for him. I just think everyone's a little too quick to write Lesnar off in this fight.

hmmm... lesnars last fight reaaaaaaaaaally changed how he is viewed

this next fight, esp against someone who can strike like JDS, will be verrrrry telling

his entire training camp should be him getting blasted in teh face and forced to cook delicate meals while having his bell rung so he can get used to functioning while being beat up....we know he can hit others and make it hurt

gotta agree with the fleeker here, people seem to be writing brock off way too quickly here. I AM NOT a brock lesnar fan by any means, but im still quite on the fence on who i'll be picking here. you can make good points for both of them when it comes time to pick a winner, JDS better striking and agility, Brock bigger stronger better wrestling. Not an easy fight to pick imo.

Looks like everyone's jumping back on the hate lesnar bandwagon at the first opportunity.

Emfleek is right, whether he happened to be in the WWE or not Lesnar is a legitimate wrestler and if Dos Santos gets put on his back he can easily wind up exactly the same as Mir and Carwin.

Can someone tell me how JDS keeps this fight standing? If he cant this has Brock smashing his face in written all over it I predict JDS comes out of this fight looking like Frank Mir, bloody and beaten by a bigger stronger superior wrestler.
