I think Fedor or Overeem would stand a chance against Brock. It'd just be a matter of signing them to the UFC. As far as people currently in the UFC go, maybe Shane Carwin?


Carwin is one of the few people that are Lesnar's size and as dominating. He is 11-0, and none of his matches have gone past the 1st round. I mean, this would be a hell of a match. Carwin is coming off a win over Gonzaga. He faces Cain Valezquez at UFC 104 in October, and the winner faces Lesnar.


Lesnar is a much better wrestler in my estimation, but Carwin has more knockout power. If it goes to the ground I would think Brock would win rather easily, but if Carwin would knock him out standing up.



True, very few people can out-wrestle Lesnar. Could make for a classic battle. Of course, Carwin has to beat Valezquez first.

Its kinda funny how some of you neglect Brock's striking ability. The dude has frozen hams for fists. I thinkknow he could stand toe to toe with anyone in the UFC right now.

Fedor is his best matched opponent because of his expertise with sambo, which is a great technique with big guys.

I do kung-fu (Baguazhang), have for a while now, and I hate sparring with good sambo practitioners :( I have no MMA desire whatsoever though, I use it more for fitness and to be the occasional badass when necessary as my circle dance is quite good!

Carwin has much better boxing skills. That's not to say that Brock is terrible (actually during the Mir fight his stand up WAS pretty terrible), but his primary assets are his size and wrestling ability. He doesn't look *good* standing up, which is why someone like Carwin or Overeem would have a chance.

edit: Fedor's best shot is striking, too. He's a great fighter, but he's ALWAYS had the most trouble against technically skilled wrestlers. Brock is a very, very good wrestler, and would probably win on the ground. He'll be guarding against the armbar that took out Randleman, I'm sure.

I didn't mean to neglect, I just think Brock would prefer a match on the ground against a good striker. He was something like 107-5 as a college wrestler. Amazing. The man has dominated even when losing. I'd love to see someone give him a good match.

I've not really thought about it. I think Penn will probably win, but I wouldnt be surprised at all to see Silva beat Griffin, that one is a real toss-up for me. Not ordering this one, will watch it on the web probs.

I'm more interested in confirmation of Fedor to UFC.

Fedor vs Brock w/ Brock in the Ivan Drago role lol.

I'll be rooting for Brock every time.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

probably. Carwin is a behemoth, and can easily end the fight with one punch.

i will be pulling for velasquez, since i think he's probably the more skilled fighter. but the power / size difference might be too much to overcome

Seriously Forrest was a let down. I really thought he was going to pull the upset, but it just goes to show how good Silva is. Dana white needs to have Silva and Machida fight each other...it would be such a sick fight...n is rampage next for silva?

Yeah, seriously. I mean, I couldn't see Forrest beating Silva, but I atleast expected him to give him a good tough fight. Silva dominated him.

Silva claims he won't fight Machida who he calls his 'friend and brother', and I'd think that White will get some fights out of Silva in that division before he pushes the issue.

Here's what I'm thinking... Silva is dominating, and Tito Ortiz (who White does not like very much on a personal level) is back. Wouldn't be shocked to see them lock up.

Silva is most likely going to have to defend his middleweight title against Henderson first though.
