Massive success? You'd go on record to say that Lesnar had "massive" success with his 2 title defenses? He won a close fight with Mir where he found himself in trouble, and won a one-sided ass-kicking up until the 2nd round. Hell, even against Randy, was it such a great victory?
What Lesnar did in MMA is impressive, but to put him in the Hall of Fame? Come on. The guy had an 8 fight, 4 year (3 year in the UFC) career, almost landing on 50/50 in the process. Credit goes to him for being able to have the success he did with such little experience, but still...
