    Most people know Brock Lesnar is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion and that he had two consecutive title defenses which ties the UFC record for successful consecutive defenses of their Heavyweight Title. Others have been had more than one reign as UFC HW champ and the record of two successful consecutive title defenses will likely be broken.

    "What, of a significant and impressive nature, did Brock Lesnar ever accomplish in MMA", you may be asking. The following is the answer and it is a description of accomplishments so significant and impressive that it's unlikely any UFC fighter will ever match these accomplishments of Brock Lesnar.

    Lesnar entered the UFC and immediately began fighting mixed martial artists ranked in the top ten of The UFC at the time. What made this incredibly impressive is that Lesnar had only one prior pro MMA fight in his young career, and no amateur MMA fights whatsoever. To not only enter The UFC after practically no MMA experience in an era when people just didn't do that anymore but to request and be granted the opportunity to fight the best fighters The UFC had is something nobody in the modern era of The UFC (post the sanctioning of the UFC after The UFC created many new rules in order to hopefully get sanctioned nationwide) has ever been granted or even asked for by a fighter other than Lesnar. Most impressive is that after embarking on this quest which would certainly lead to horrific results for other fighters who have no more experience in MMA than Lesnar had, Lesnar went 4 - 1 in his next 5 fights. The one loss in these 5 fights was in his first fight, a fight vs. Frank Mir which Lesnar dominated and should have won had the referee not made a call which was controversial at best.

    After that first loss, Lesnar brutalized PRIDE veteran Heath Herring, shattering Herring's orbital socket and basically enedng his career sole for one ill fated return to the sport for Herring quite a few years later. Lesnar won by unanimous decision and allowed Herring no offense. He appeared to be toying with Herring - a well respected 260 pound veteran in his own right. The UFC Heavyweight Champion at the time, "Captain America' Randy Couture was so impressed by what he had seen in Lesnar that he wanted to fight him. So Lesnar was granted a shot at Couture's total which he readily accepted and in the second round f the fight Lesnar won by TKO and became The UFC''''s New Heavyweight Champion.

    In his first title defense Lesnar avenged the only loss on his record by beating Frank Mir to a pulp, retaining his UFC Heavyweight Title along the way and cutting the most controversial post-fight promo in the history of The UFC - an interview so controversial that The UFC refuses to include it in their DVD release of the event UFC 200!

    The next challenger for Lesnar's title turned to to be a man as large and muscular as Lesnar with a similar amateur wrestling pedigree. He had one big edge on Lesnar though - unlike Lesnar, he had entered MMA the traditional way and this fight, his first shot at The UFC HW Title was his 13th professional MMA fight. Carwin was 12-0, had finished all 12 of his fights in the first round and 8 of them by KO, TKO, or submission from punches. Clearly Carwin would be by far the heaviest hitter Lesnar ha ever faced. Carwin unloaded on Lesnar in the first round, eventually knocking Lesnar down and throwing a total of at least 60 punches just as hard as he possibly could at Lesnar. All rumors that Lesnar had a "glas chiin" were put to rest! Lesnar, even as he continued to absorb shots from the heavy hitter made it back to his fight and began working on a takedown all before the end of the first round.

    In the second round, Carwin had clearly run out of stamina while Lesnar's superior conditioning had kept him fresh. The bell for the second round to begin rang, and in just a matter o seconds, Lesnar being the well rounded competitor he is, decided to forego his ground and pound strategy after taking Carwin down and instead sunk a choke deep on Carwin. There was no escape from the expertly applied choke hold and as soon as Carwin submitted, the referee raised Lesnar's hand in victory, which tied the record for consecutive successful UFC Heavyweight Title defenses.

    Didn't read it all, but there is no doubt Lesnar is a special athlete that we haven't seen since Bob Sapp. What these guys did with limited training is unreal, And has embarassed the whole Fight community. Beating up guys that trained their whole life, even world champions.

    I hope Lesnar comes back, but it is highly unlikely, since that probably would have to be in a lower weightclass.

    On the contrary; CM Punk and Brock both lost via submission in their first UFC bouts. Punk is on target to match and of course surpass the achievements of Brock.

    PEDs suck, i completely agree, but when everyone is taking them, as they were during Brock's title run, then it just doesn't matter, the field of play was level.

    Brock's biggest issue was his stomach issues. Who knows where he and the HW division would be without them. Would Brock of developed into a more well rounded fighter? Would challengers of been destroyed on a regular basis? We don't know the answers to these questions because Brock lost so much time due to illness.

    TS is right. Nobody else will get a title shot after going 1-1 in the UFC.

    Brock did a few good things for MMA. 1) Brought in new fans from pro wrestling. 2) Had the look that Dana wanted for his champion as Big Country (who would not get a title shot) didn't. 3) The best interviews of any HWT ever ! They still make me laugh. Was he a great fighter ? Maybe , but he was the best entertainer at HWT ever in the UFC.

    I agree, Brock Lesnar was a once in a generation star. It is a shame he has never gotten the respect he deserved from the fans, he won the title in just his fourth fight! That will NEVER be repeated. I have never attended one of his fights but IF he was to fight again I would do whatever possible to attend.

    Also the UFC needs to cut ties with USADA. Brock had a raw deal once again I'm afraid.
