Wait, so if we don't agree with this, it's automatically hate?
C'mon man, thats the same bullshit people got throughout brock's career...if you questioned him, even a little bit, you were hating on him.
I don't hate him. I just don't think he's "one of the better HW's in UFC history," and I don't have him even close to being a Hall of Fame candidate.
Like it or not Brock is a sure-fire Hall of Famer and should be anyone's all time Top 10 HW list.
Even if he wasn't retired, he would not be on my top 10 right now.
Even though his career was short he has some very notable wins. |
Herring (probably the worse fighter he ever fought in the UFC)
Couture (UFC champion)
Mir (2x UFC Champion)
Carwin (UFC Champion)
So in his UFC career he beat 3 UFC champions. Anderson Silva has beaten 3 as well. So come on guys, give Brock his props.
You're massaging your statistics a bit here.
Couture was coming off a 15 month layoff, and Mir and Carwin were both interim
champs when lesnar faced them.
So is Nog a sure-fire Hall of Famer? Is Tim Sylvia, or does beating Andre twice not count?
Is Velasquez just one-win-over-a-former-champion away from being a sure-fire HoFer?
I'm not hating on lesnar, I just think there is another valid interpretation of your analysis of his accomplishments.
