First off I don't think we ever see Brock back in mma. But if he were to come back I would take him over everyone on that list. In fact here is a current top 10

1. Cain Velasquez: Cain wins a rematch no problem

2. Junior dos Santos: JDS by TKO

3. Fabricio Werdum: Brock by G and P

4. Travis Browne: pickem

5. Josh Barrnett: would love this one!! Brock by G and P

6. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva: Brock would maul him

7. Mark Hunt: Brock on the ground any way he wants

8. Alistair: Overeem rematch pickem

9. Frank Mir: Just say no Frank!!

10. Stipe Miocic: Brock by TKO

As weak as the HW division is if healthy imo Brock would be top 5 easy probably higher.




I think you're giving Brock way too much credit. Just because he might be able to score a takedown on a few of these guys doesn't mean he'll be able to lay on top of them for 15 minutes. His takedowns really aren't even that good.

I believe Mir's the only one in that list that Brock would defeat. Miocic would destroy Brock on the feet, and I'd be surprised if Brock could keep him down for 15 minutes. Overeem would likely do the same thing he did last time to Brock, if Brock would even be willing to fight him again, which I'd doubt. Brock likely wouldn't be able to score a takedown on Hunt; Hunt's TDD has improved greatly. Brock wouldn't be able to hold Bigfoot down for 15 minutes. I don't like Barnett, but I believe he'd maul Brock both on the feet and on the ground. I wouldn't be surprised if Barnett out-wrestled him as well. Browne would annihilate him. Werdum would do the same. Werdum's grappling is more than good enough to either keep the fight standing, get back to his feet, or probably even submit Brock from his back. I won't even touch on Cain or JDS.

But that's just my opinion. I'm sure many disagree, but I just think a lot of people here are giving Brock far too much credit, especially with his takedowns and top game. I don't see him fairing well against anyone in the top 10 other than Mir and possibly Miocic, but that's only if he could take him down repeatedly and keep him there, which I'd honestly be surprised to see at this point.

Brock would win maybe one of those ten fights.

I wouldn't want to see lesnar back, unless he was training and keeping on top of his skills while in WWE, I mean it's not like he needs to learn wrestling but his already sub par stand up could worsen.



Funny you say that, I think Brock's sub game has improved leaps and bounds since his move to the WWE. He has several wins by Kimaura. Even one off his back.

Weird does that mean Overeem would juice up again to get the win? I am sure Brock would take a fight with a natural reem...

Brock has a very low chance at the belt but, top ten heavyweight he would be in a heart beat

Even if Brock is serious, he needs to stay with play fighting, the training for a MMA fight takes to much toll on his body with his condition.
