    Brock didn't like being hit. No fighter does but he doesn't have the stomach for it. Not sure striking would change that

    He was old but, no old man likes that, just ask Conor. I think he would have reacted differently if he was young bull full of testosterone

    I think this is a product of his training to an extent. He was already a renowned wwe guy by the time he got into MMA and I recall a few people saying it was frowned upon to hit him hard. I think it was Brett Rogers and Pat Barry who’ve said this.

    Maybe if he came in as Joe Schmo and cut his teeth properly like everyone else, he would be more composed, but who knows?

    it was 1995 when Brock was 18, so he probably would have done well.

    I disagree. He's had heard to out into his craft. I think he's a gifted athlete, talented and when there's resistance it shocks him. He wasn't use to it during his upbringing. This is a man whom openly admitted he was a school bully and loved it he never met any resistance. I don't think skipping the wwe would have helped improved that. Brock could have improved his striking the way ortega did. Continually working on his craft and reworking it. I don't think he does that.

    Maybe he does. IDK
