Brock Lesner

Anybody catch the article today about how Brock Lesner is finally going to have his first MMA fight against some guy about 7'2" 365 pound guy from South Korea? It was an article in yahoo sports. The fight is going to take place in Los Angeles. He is training with Sean Sherk.
How do you guys think he will do?

The guy has a nasty wrestling career ( real, pre-wwe ), but I honestly think he's been out of it for to long. The guy is modern day gladiator but his over confidence is going to get the best of him. If he does some how beat this guys ass, I wouldn't be surprised, he is a true freak. I give him a 30% chance of winning.

He's definately a unique physical specimen and has a great NCAA wrestling background. He won the NCAA Championship as a heavyweight in 2000 after placing 2nd in 1999. Went 106-5 over his college career.

I think both he and Kurt Angle could at least be competitive in MMA with the right amount of training/time. Would they be dominant? Doubtful, but we'll see.

According to a report on MMANews.com, Brock Lesnar's MMA debut may have to wait. Originally scheduled to headline the K-1/Elite XC combined "Dynamite! USA" show promoted by FEG, the fight seems to be off.

Lesnar's scheduled opponent, Korean kickboxer Hong-Man Choi was denied his fighter license for the proposed June 2nd bout at the L.A. Coliseum. No official reason was reported.

So what happens now? Well, the promotion will likely try and go back to the commission and get the match back on the card. If they can't, it seems a little late to find any replacement, let alone a "suitable replacement" for the former WWE wrestling star.

If that wasn't bad enough, the entire card is in jeopardy as well. According to TheFightNetwork.com, there are a number of legal problems which could prevent the show from happening at all.

Mike Kogan, promoter from FEG USA, laughs off such concerns. Kogan responded to the website article by stating, "I know they have to get people to hit their website, but to me, that is insulting because I'm a professional promoter. Does the commission have certain things it wants from us? Yes. Have we been filing things with the commission? Yes. Will we be licensed? Yes."

Ten days to go, we'll see.

It wouldn't suprise me if he did well, and it wouldn't suprise me if he didn't. I mean, the things he used to do when in the WWE showed that he's a true athlete, but he's shown with his Wrestling career, and his attempt at a Football career, that when the going gets tough, he gets going. So I question whether he'll be able to make it or not.

Say what you want about professional wrestling, but those guys are top notch athletes, and I wouldn't be suprised to see them do well in ANY sport.

I am a Brock Lesnar fan and have been anxiously waiting for his first mma fight, but I think you hit the nail on the head with your post. His track record isnt the greatest for sticking it out in tough situations 8(
