Default Whatever happens in tonight's fight......

a prime Brock Lesnar would have knocked the shit out of Overeem.

Brock was faded when he entered the UFC, he's a shell of his former self now. In fact he's basically shot.

If Shogun, Fedor etc lose by stoppage and then get full passes for being past-prime/shot/not recovered from surgery, then there is NO ****ING WAY that Brock doesn't get the same.

His surgery was more of a physical handicap than pretty much anyone else's, and his career in pro wrestling knocked the living shit out of his body without ever allowing him time to recover.

Hard to argue that he's the same physical specimen he once was, and Lesnar's fighting style is ALL ABOUT maximizing his physicality. That's his bread and butter.

Overeem could knock the shit out of him in 30 seconds, it means nothing. Prime Brock would steamroll him.

But what about prime Overeem?

How do you think tonight'll go then? I like Brock and want hig to win but Overeem looks tough. Brock's a great wrestler but he'll have a hard time keep a guy of Overeem's size down and Overeem is a good kick boxer.

I'm usually wrong about MMA though. Hope that is the case here.

Fact - Lesnar was never a real fighter. Just a freakshow athlete. Ufc experiment (and money maker)

True. I mean, Brock's stand-up was amazing back in '08, he was like a big white Anderson Silva. He'd have defended those knees and legs to the body with ease, then crane-kicked Ubereem into oblivion.
