    Which of the current Sherdog top 10 HWs do you feel confident would likely beat Brock if Brock made a return in 2015? This is assuming that Brock actually comes back in fighting shape and motivated.

    Most of them. Roy Nelson is the only one I wouldn't favour.

    Personally, I say all of them. The only ones I hesitate on are Hunt, Bigfoot, and AA, but if I were betting money, I'd still put bet on them.

    All of them. Brock is an athlete, not a fighter. He's too old, too green and too stubborn to become a well-rounded MMA fighter.

    He'll beat the guys without technique or guys he could smother or bully, he gets smashed by everyone else.

    I'd even favor someone like Big Nog against him even at this stage.

    I voted all of them as Lensar isn't even of ZUFFA's roster.

    I'd favour him against Arlovski, Silva (too slow), and Nelson. Underdog against rest.

    Edit: missed Hunt. Bad stylistic match for Hunt. He's going to need to land a bomb early.

    Cain, JDS, and Werdum likely beat him. The rest are coin-flips IMO.

    All of them. Brock is laughably one dimensional and now he is also 38 years old in July.

    Ah Crap I voted wrong. I thought it said vote for who you think Brock could beat


    I think Brock could only beat Roy Nelson.


    After seeing what Stipe did to Dos Santos and how he took Dos Santos down I definitely favor Stipe over Brock.

    Cain, Dos Santos, Stipe, Browne, are all too lethal of strikers and too hard to takedown and Werdum is a solid striker with lethal ground game. Mark Hunt is too hard to takedown and too lethal standing and Arlovski 2.0 is too fast and dangerous standing and is good on the ground. Even if brock took alrovski down i Dont see arolviski folding like mir did mentally and thus I see arlovski withstanding brocks assault long enough to live and fire back.

    barnett, big foot and nelson are more of brocks level. but big foot could be tricky for brock.

    It's interesting seeing Sherdog almost unanimously agree that Brock is overrated and would lose to most of the top10 HW division when, just 4 years ago, he was favored as the GOAT HW of all time....according to many.

    I said this in another thread, it bears repeating.

    Cain Velasquez has the least punching power of anyone who ever hurt Brock. Cain Velasquez.
