Pretty much. Maybe he would have had more confidence if he never got sick and never lost all that muscle and strength, but that's neither here nor there.
Although he looked hesitant in the beginning, IIRC Overeem hit him/kneed him in the guts, and ALL the starch INSTANTLY went out of Lesnar. Don't know if it hurt him way more than usual with all his intestine problems and all, but as I recall, watching the fight, as soon as that shot landed to the midsection you could instantly see that he was done. He had no confidence in himself at all.
