    How would Daniel Cormier deal with Brock Lesnar's wrestling?

    I'm just talking about their ground game.

    No doubt DC is an olympic athlete, but Brock weighs more and is stronger/bigger. Brock is known for his good ground game, too. With Brock having strength advantage, would DC have problems? DC couldn't handle well with Jon Jones in the wrestling department. He barely took JJ down like he did with other opponents.

    A solid right hand would be my guess. Half the fun of Lesnar fighting is seeing how his opponents deal with the Vanilla gorilla rushing in for a takedown.

    DC is impossible to control or hold down, Brock doesn’t have the cardio to drive non stop round after round.

    Steel chairs aren't allowed in MMA, so he should be fine

    Do we really know that? Jones was taking DC down just to prove a point, not to make it a wrestling match.

    Same way Cain did. Does Brock even train mma on a regular basis like DC does?

    DC has been taken down by several people, Jones, Gus, Rumble and Stipe but is back up and back to an equal position without fail in seconds. DC doesn’t fight with defending takedowns in mind because he’s so confident in his ability to improve position and escape.

    Jones had years of juice giving super cardio and strength

    None of them are wrestlers/grapplers so DC obviously had an advantage there.

    Knock Lesnar the fuck out with contemptuous ease...at any moment of his choosing. Then DC can collect a decent paycheck.

    Stipe, Rumble and Jones all have a wrestling background. Jones is a better grappler than a striker I think.

    I think it's Jones' knee and kicks which bothered DC.

    And combine this with the fact that Brock can't deal with being punched, which DC does quite well, and I think it's a mismatch. But after this weekend what the hell do I know? :cool:

    I think the question should be how Brock deals with DCs wrestling.

    He would deal with his wrestling by using MMA. This is not a wrestling competition. Miesha outgrappled the fuck out of an olympian Mcmann. By using MMA.<Y2JSmirk>
