easy deal for brock?He fought Frank Mir(ex champ) and Herring who almost beat nogueira and is a well rounded heavyweight with more experience than most but he could not do a thing to Brock.When Brock learns some jiu jitsu to go with his freakish wrestling he will be the man to beat.No one will stop his takedown and when he relaxes a bit on the ground then look out everyone else.Also GSP is a true champion and a respectful person,Fitch was tough as nails also but not quite in the same class
The only reason Brock was immune to Herring was because he knocked Heath's smarts out in about 15 seconds with the right hand. Had he not done that, I would bet that we would have seen a much better fight.
And no matter what the scale says, no one really believes Brock was 265, maybe 285+.
And for easy deal, yeah he had an easy deal, you'd be crazy to argue it and you just proved it yourself. Who gets to fight Mir for their first fight, and Herring for their second. The man is a trained competative full contact athlete so yes he stood a chance against the both of them, (in addition to the rumored 1/4 of a mill he's paying his coaches).
Its not a matter of did Brock hold up to two (used to be) great fighters, its that the fights were boring because all Brock did was grapple (and he failed miserably at that, accomplishing NOTHING with all the wrestling he did) and got one good punch off on Herring and he got a hell of a sweet ride from the UFC.
Dealing with the pressure? He better, its part of the "perk" package from going from "Nobody" to "Co-Main Event" in less than 4 months.
Will Brock be an awesome fighter? Sure looks like it. But he's not one now. He is no more a great fighter than Bob Sapp was. Anyone remember him almost beating Minotauro? Remind you of anyone fighting Frank Mir lately?
You know what? Ignore me, I'm just pissed the Lesnar didn't pick Heath Herring up and drop an F5 Suplex on him
