    He was an absolute creature back then.

    Starting his MMA training that 5-6 years earlier would have made a huge difference.

    He would had been 20 percent or more better than he ended up being

    Enough to destroy the UFC roster

    He would have. He also would have been a lot poorer for it.

    Brock did not like getting hit in the face. Even though he was a complete monster, he couldn’t take shots.

    if he wasn’t gifted a title shot due to his fame and notoriety, he would have never held the belt.

    Coleman was pretty small compared to Lesnar.

    Lesnar was a true athletic freak of nature. One of the biggest of HW's that could move like a Light weight. If he trained mma instead of wrestling and NFL he would be goat

    They would have time to correct it back then. He was young enough

    He would not have been as big of a draw as he was if he started then. His WWE fam made him a bigger draw, its the casuals that made him big in MMA. He would not have had that casual fanbase if he went to UFC earlier.

    Not sure he'd pass the piss test. Granted, it wasn't as strongly tested back then so maybe.

    He would have gone to Pride for money and get destroyed by Fedor like the other ones.
