Brock Lesnar Was Fed Fights That Sell PPVs   [View Full Version]
DCRage » Posted 8/3/07 12:38:00PM

That's the latest salvo fired in the ongoing verbal war of words by Shane Carwin towards UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar. Carwin clearly disagrees with Lesnar saying Shane hand-picked his fights and Carwin notes he wasn't fed fights that sell shows, while also taking a jab at Lesnar's math skills.

This is like saying "Rampage left the UFC". Everyone knows this, if anyone thought that he earned himself a title shot after the win against Herring then they're wrong. He was given it because he is the UFC's cash cow and proved that in his 2nd and 3rd fights in the UFC then made them even more money for the UFC in his last 2 fights. He's the Hulk Hogan, Rock and Stone Cold of MMA.

Would anyone argue that Brock's record of 4-1 is far more impressive than Carwin's 11-0 considering the level of competition each has faced?

I would. Quality matters so much more than quantity in MMA. Case in point, very few people think of Travis Fulton as the greatest fighter of all time. I think that his wins over Couture and Mir dwarf Carwin's win over Gonzaga, and that Brock's win over HH is of more importance than anything that Carwin has done besides beat Gonzaga.

both sides are right but i would like to see the big boy get his chin checked one time to see how he handles it.

Yes Lesnar has better quality of wins but what brock said was that carwin was not experienced enough to fight him. But when brock got his title shot he was 2-1 with no high quality wins. Carwin really only has Gonzaga but Gonzaga is better than Herring.

Brock disgraced himself and MMA by the antics displayed at UFC 100.......Carwin was pissed much like myself and is just poking the bear.....I guarentee Lesnar gets more boos then cheers and if Carwin can pull this one off it will be awesome.

Prediction: Carwin 1st round KO

brock is more faster and quicker
carwin hits harder
brock is a better wrestler and could keep carin on the ground
carwin stand up is better than brock
no subs here but i do think if brock ever mastered the guillontine his would be as powerful as say a joe stevenson's

i can't wait to see this fight carwin did get rocked by gonzaga
couture did rock lesnar
both guys will gas no way this goes past the second round
pyschological edge goes to brock,


simple who ever wins this needs to stick to the game plan play off your strength

if brock tries to trade he will get knocked out then again he didn't trade with mir, which was smart and did ground n pound

if carwin hits the ground, lesnar will drop hamerfists of hell on him

nov 21st we will see who is the smarter fighter

If Brock mastered the guillotine, I think the NSAC would have to amend their rules to prevent deaths in the cage. lol

"Brock Lesnar Was Fed Fights That Sell PPVs"

Did it sell? YES
Did he win? YES
What is your point exactly?

I think Brock Lesnar is probably the better fighter. I dont think Carwin could have finished Mir the way Brock did at all.

So seems I think Brock will win, I want to know how good he can get...is he really the future of the HW division? Before I say yes, I want to see...

His chin tested
Find out how good he is on his back
See how his endurance holds up in the championship rounds.

Carwin should at least test his chin and with any luck get him on his back.

I probably should have said "dispute" instead of "argue". Yes, I agree that Brock's record is more impressive.
