    Also the getting hit in the face is pure crap. Man took plenty a head shots... If he was smart in sparring then thats his training choice...

    Look at these fools who go all out in sparring and take years off their careers...

    Derp!

    in 2001, he'd have probably lost to Mark Kerr, Coleman, Ricco Rodriguez, or Josh Barnett

    True, if he wasn't famous, he would've had to fight more to get a TS. Still, who would've stood a chance against him around that time in the UFC except for Arlovski and maybe Timmeh?

    Seeing him in PRIDE would've been amazing, though. I see those fights being much harder for him, but also much more exciting. For example, someone like Fujita might have pulled an upset over Lesnar via being strong, powerful and having a great chin.

    Imagine Lesnar vs Randleman, prime Sapp, Cro Cop, Big Nog, Fedor, etc. Even Wandy would've been crazy enough to fight Lesnar.

    Edit: Saku would've 100% fought Lesnar!

    Prime BJ would've fought Lesnar if offered lol. Now I want to see a 220lbs BJ vs prime Lesnar.

    he wouldn't have come to the ufc simply because the money wasn't there. It is why shamrock left at the top of his game to go the wwe.

    Let's say ufc was established and paying millions like htey do now for top stars, which would be enough for brock to sign.

    Well brock would rape Fedor.

    If Brock went to the UFC in 2001 then Dana would have sent him to PRIDE instead of Chuck and Fedor would have absolutely smashed him to pieces and sent him to the WWE.

    While in most cases MMA drastically evolved from 2001 to 2009 HW in the UFC is an aberration where MMA devolved drastically.

    Lesnar would have done awful against your Barnett's, Rodriguez's and pre accident Mir's.

    Brock already came in and dominated the sport of MMA. No need for hypotheticals. He crushes past, present and future.

    tbh, it would not really be fair. Brock had eaten more steroids than all of the ufc and pride fighters combined. He was a steroid mountain.
