He fought the way he should have and the way that myself and others thought he would.
He fought the same he's fought his entire MMA career...
I was not surprised by what I saw, however, it confirmed that he is not ready.
Confirmed he's not ready for what exactly? He's a former UFC HW champ and has wins over Herring, Couture, Carwin, Mir and Hunt...
All the guys you have named who use a 'wet blanket' style of fighting also have something to give on the feet (for the most part).
lolololol what? The only guy with reasonable stand up from the guys I mentioned is GSP... The rest rely on their grappling because they have no stand up skills.
There is no way Lesnar is beating any of those guys.
You really think Lesnar can't beat the JDS who's looked terrible recently and got KO'd by Stipe, got KO'd by Reem a couple of fights ago and got steamrolled by Cain twice? Yeah, don't know what to tell you there then if you don't think Lesnar can take him down and grind him to a decision win...
Lewis gas tank is horrible. Lesnar can over power him and grind out a decision easily as Lewis will gas early just trying to avoid being taken down.
Struve is an ideal opponent for Lesnar as he's primarily a lanky kickboxer which Lesnar can over power and taken down constantly fairly easily.
Arlovski has a questionable chin and is on a 5 fight losing streak including 2 brutal KO's and 2 subs. If Lesnar lands a big right hand on him, he's going to sleep. If not then Lesnar can grind out a decision over him.
Browne is on a 4 fight losing streak and has been KO'd brutally twice in 2 of those 4 loses. Another guy Lesnar can either KO or grind a decision over.
Giving him an easy fight and then against Stipe would make no sense unless Cain is still out and Stipe is ready to cash a check. After 200, the magic of Lesnar is gone. I don't want to see it happen.
You don't follow the UFC closely, do you?
This has been one of the worst years in the companies history. Horrible PPV numbers. Stipe can't draw a dime. Cain either. Brock on the other hand has proven is a draw.
This is a moment in which the UFC need Brock desperately.
Their 2 biggest draws aside from Brock are Ronda and Conor; 1 of their draws has been knocked off and the other is banking on a huge boxing match against Floyd Mayweather, so they desperately need Brock at this point.
