Lol its pretty easy to get under your skin. Cry more
We get it. You hate brock, you hate fake wrestling. You hate guys who like fake wrestling. All of which is understandable, but doesn't need to be repeated.
I'd never try to argue that brock was overhyped, overrated, and was never as skilled as people made him out to be.
But he was a legitimate fighter. He was/probably is better than guys who are currently in the UFC. He would beat the majority of the HW fighters still under contract more times than he'd lose to them. That doesn't mean he's a top 5 HW. But it also doesn't mean that he was never a fighter.
When I posted criticisms of the way Sakara interpreted brock's resume, it wasn't dismissing the resume entirely, or brock's accomplishment's entirely. It was an attempt to keep things in perspective and cut through some of the exaggeration due to hype.
But you're exaggerating in the other direction, which is just as odious.
brock was a legitimate fighter. He did a great job, given the amount of training he had, given the situation he was in. He broke into the elite, and deserved a solid top 5 ranking at his peak. He never balked at a fight [Jones, Anderson and Georges could all take a lesson from that] and he learned from every fight he was in. Just because he wasn't the greatest thing ever to happen to MMA doesn't mean he was never a fighter.
So please, think before you post.
The forum doesn't need more spurious nonsense.

Nope. No problem with fake wrestling or that he came from it. I also didn't discredit his earlier accomplishments. I said if he would have went into mma earlier he could have been a monster.
My point is simple. He went back to wrestling when competition got stiff, stay there. Im sure with GSP gone Dana is trying to throw some money at him for a comeback which is pointless for anything besides a draw. I don't care to watch him come back to start turtling up again. The guy already reached his peek in this sport, there's nothing more for him to try to prove here besides get embarrassed at this point.
Its not my fault I don't share the same opinion as some ppl here. Some ppl like to get offensive because I don't share their opinions. Sak is the first one to run to the keyboard when someone loses just to try to get a rise outta ppl. Apparently he can't even handle someone disagreeing with him.
Point is simple. No Brock should not come back and get some pointless undeserved fight (which he definitely will). We will then hear Dana say a million more times "this guy is for real". You wanna bring him back? Make him fight a Bigfoot, Mark Hunt, or Miocic kind of opponent. Definitely not no headline (which is pretty much a given).
Brock vs Nelson would be fun and likely a top of card fight.
You say shark I say hey man, Jaws was never my scene and I don't like Star Wars
1inthechamber if you don't make any fight Brock would be in a co/main event than business wise your a moron. What ever you want to say about him is fine, but not being a draw isn't one of them.
Maybe there is some merit to this. Apparently there is going to be a pre-show press conference with Dana and Lorenzo, at 6PM EST.
EDIT: Nevermind, it's about their new pay service.

he threw the best straight right hand of his career in the heath herring fight. if he seriously goes in and trains against real boxers and kickboxers, getting his ass kicked in the gym and learning. then he'd be almost unstoppable. problem with Brock is he had a designer training camp. his only sparring partner wasn't very good and let Brock use him like a punching bag. he has to be challenged and even humbled in the gym if he expects to have the same fire in the cage. At this point in his life thought, what would be the point? he has money, a family, has nothing to really prove or fight for.

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
Given some of the lackluster PPV buy rates, the loss of GSP as a draw and the low numbers on the FS1 and FOX shows, the potential of bringing back Brock would do crazy business, as I do not think his drawing power has wained and while his last two WWE PPVs have been down, that's WWE's fault and horrible booking, not Brock as a spectacular DRAW.
