    Lesnar isn't an NFL reject.

    He got a tryout despite never even playing football before and he was close to 30. Bork is just a goddamn freakish athlete.

    And Tony Mandarich can KO Mike Tyson.

    (High five if you get the reference)

    He's good, but if I trained for it I'd be a much better NFL lineman than Damon Harrison.

    See how easy that is?

    Brock failings in other sports were caused by himself not any physical shortcomings

    The Vikings wanted him to play guard...he refused cause he only wanted to play defense

    Brock sucker at k1 cause he hates getting hit in the face

    Basically he found his goldilocks fit with MMA

    Regardless if he hadn't made it in mma either, the guy was an A level physical specimin...you really can't deny it

    Were talking about a near 300 pound man who had a 4.6 second 40 yard dash, could bench press 225 pounds over 30 times and had a bigger vertical than kevin durant....I can count on 1 hand the number of guys that size I've seen put up numbers like that at the combine

    Lesnar was an elite wrestler with elite athletic ability, just look at his stats in the NFL combine.

    You're correct that HW as a division is garbage though.

    Most of those guys would get subbed by Werdum or outwrestled by Stipe or Cormier if they didn't have a grappling background.

    You can't get by on athleticism alone.

    Maybe it more had to do with the fact Lesnar was about 100 pounds larger than Randy and 20 years younger than 50 year old Couture? The Lesnar being proof that A Level athletes can easily succeed in MMA was mercilessly debunked by Cain, who basically started training MMA around the same time and made Brock look like a helpless child, CM Punk level really. Fighting is so different than other sports and provides avenues where slow twitch stoners, like the Diaz brothers, can whip on A level athletes by implementing their game plan and being A level can be more a liability than a help.

    I hate guys who talk shit knowing they have no intention of ever having to back it up.

    Guys like this get smacked in the face and crumple. Think of Lesnar but far worse. They think they’re fighters b/c they weigh 300lbs. One stiff jab to the face, temporary loss of vision, feel their skin tear a bit... and we’d never see him again.

    Would get murdered by Stipe and then by USADA.

    Handeggers are not the brightest people out there apparently.

    If that's all you see, then you understand very little about sports or athleticism.

    1. Sprinting isn't a niche athletic skill. Running fast is fundamental to sports.

    2. When you say "NFL guys" who exactly are you talking abut? Wide receivers? Linebackers? Linemen? They all have different body types and different cardio levels, etc. No shit a 340 lb guy doesn't have great cardio. The real question is how good is his cardio compared to the average 340 lb man.

    3. You never adequately define "all around athleticism" other than it prohibiting oxygen masks. You say sprinters and marathoners are niche skills, but there aren't any runners competitive in both.

    this guy would tire in under 3 min at 340lbs. the ref would have to stop it when he's on his back due to exhaustion.

    It doesn't mean anything unless he's willing to try it. He could also say he's going to go into physics and win a Nobel Prize for figuring out what dark matter is, and the answer would be the same: its good to believe in yourself, now go do it.

    If he loses the gut, he could make it.

    They should make an upcoming HW TUF season out of former pro sports athletes.
