I'm saying styles make fights and Lesnar had a good style match up against Alistair and got owned, Big Foot didn't have the wrestling pedigree Brock did. Big Foot got TKO'd by Eric Pele. All the signs pointed to Alistair destroying him in the first with strikes.
Alistair had to fight the exact way he did in order for Big Foot defeat him. Had Alistair stood back and used strikes like he was in a K-1 fight and just defend the takedown it most likely would have been a different story.
Props to Big Foot for pulling it off and making Alistair waste energy on the ground, but I still think he deserved that big underdog status.
Especially when you think about how Alistair hand picked him and was set for a title shot. You'd think he had a strategy.
