    DC will be dealing with a significant reach disadvantage, a solid 30-40lb weight disadvantage and on paper, Brock has the best wrestling DC has ever dealt with. It's not a popular opinion but I'm still a Brock fan but for the sports integrity and DC being DC, I don't want Brock to win. When they stood next to each other it looked like a MW against a SHW in there.

    If Brock keeps him at range similar how he did against Hunt, pushes him against the cage and uses his weight advantage can DC reverse these exchanges ? Like the Jones fight, It's going to be hard for DC to get past that range and even though Brocks striking is stiff, he can generate power from the smallest and most awkward of angles.

    I thought Brocks performance against Hunt was fantastic, slow but methodical....a far cry from his bull rushing & break dancing days. If he fights smart, I think he has a better chance than people are giving him credit for but at 40+ years of age, not all that much experience and now USADA he is still a bit of a mystery to me.

    Not to much... Not sure about grappling... But Cormier has power in them hands to make him breakdance....

    DC wins this the majority of the time....

    But if Brock can get him grounded early when there's little sweat or blood, and DC can't wiggle free or scramble out...

    We know that DC has the skills to get out like Cain did if this happens, but on the off chance he can't escape, he may get mauled on for at least one round. He's tough as hell though so he can probably survive it for a few minutes. Still, it would be a fucked up way to go out.

    I'm only worried about Lesnar fluking a win and the shit show that would be.

    DC should beat him with ease but I'll be nervous that something flukey could happen.

    Not at all but if it's his last fight (and payday) I hope he fights dangerous to get a bonus and finish his story with an exclamation point. Would love to see him take down Lesnar (or at least give it the old college try a few times), before the inevitable KO/TKO.

    Lesnar will need to avoid all stand up exchanges within range and to not get drawn into the pocket where DC can clinch and dirty box in the middle of the octagon. Brock's best bet is to make the fight into a wrestling match using some old Randy Couture wall n stall putting his weight onto DC.

    I'm worried for DC doing the promo stuff. Brock is damn good at cutting promos and he might make DC look like an amateur promo cutter, but as far as the actual fight? Not even a little bit.

    Oh please.

    Lesnar was turning purple when he faced a way past prime Randy Couture and luckily landed that knee.

    Cormier is going to humiliate him.

    Spoiler alert: If the fight happens Cormier will dismantle Lesnar. It will not be competitive.

    Do you think DC beats Hunt the way Brock did?

    Brock is legit
