I think it'd be way more than a little bit of training to dominate the division. Not knowing submission defenses would KILL him if he went right into the UFC HW title picture. Plus I have no idea what his stand up would be like. I think he'd be a lot like an enormous Diego Sanchez. Meaning that if his opponent had good take down defense he wouldn't be terribly effective, like Diego at UFC 60. While he did win the fight, being denied take downs repeatedly visibly had an affect on him.
You put Lesnar up against Tim Sylvia ( who has great take down defense IMO, eventhough I don't like him, and without a lot of training Lesnar gets Deboed.
