    Lion in the wizard of oz? That guy looked like the hulk and had all attributes to be a great fighter, but once you touch his face, he becomes a rabbit! Is there any fighter who resembles the metaphor of the wizard of oz more than Brock?

    Were you listening to Dark Side of the Moon while trying to think of this idea for a thread?

    The lion in the Wizard of Oz didn't have a giant phallus tattooed on his chest.

    Let's be fair to the lion.

    Brockroidz epitomizes a typical bully.

    He can dish out the beatings but folds up pretty quick when the shoe is on the other foot.

    Luckily for him, not too many can survive his initial onslaught.

    Brock was like Deebo, minus the ability to stay composed.

    I guess everyone forgets about the Carwin fight.

    It's funny because I always wondered what tatts the Lion would have on his chest if he shaved it..... now I know it's prob not a phallus....

    Not I. I remember the fight clearly. Once Carwin's knuckles barely touched Brock, Brock cowered. Only reason that fight wasn't stopped was because Carwin gassed and his punches weren't doing much damage. But had Carwin touched him again, Brock would have flopped to his back again. Brock folds when he gets touched. He panics.

    I mean, just WTF are you talking about?

    The Carwin fight optimizes what a fraud Brock is. The fucking guy finally fights someone his size. Gets hit with 2 punches that send him literally sprinting away turning his back like a scared little boy. Then he gets caught against the cage, gets hit with a 3rd punch, crumbles to the ground like he just got shot, and turtles up and pretty much gives up....This is a guy built to absorb massive amounts of punishment.

    The only thing that saved Brock was Carwin almost dying in the cage and having absolutely no energy to land any significant punches soon after Brock went down....He was basically a free target, and unable to defend himself for the rest of the fight.

    The guy has absolutely no business fighting in the UFC....It's embarrassing.

    Has nothing to do with just bleed. Has everything to do with proper stoppages.

    Everyone before Brock got slept by one shot against Carwin.

    Let's see you survive the first round that Brock did keyboard warrior.

    Which is pretty much my point that somehow escaped you. He's built to absorb punishment. And when he finally receives it, he reacts like someone who is a total pussy who has never been in a fight.This line of work is NOT for him.

    It's not clear you a Brockamaniac or anything....When you grow up, you'll realize how foolish you were.

    Okay.
