"I must point out that his victory is a defeat for the sport as such. Don't get me wrong, Lesnar is a fearsome and very dangerous opponent, but I am old school, I prefer skill and technique. This win was a defeat of martial skills. Much of what he achieved in the fight is a result of pure power... Of course, Lesnar has quality sparring partners, is an experienced wrestler and a man who learns very quickly. But he is yet to have a real struggle. He does not have many fights in his career and I would love to see how he would react to two or three good low kicks."
Pride FC 2006 Open Weight Grand Prix winner Mirko Filipovic (25-6-2) talks about Brock Lesnar's ability to win using strength and power rather than technique and skill. "Cro Cop" recently returned to Zuffa at UFC 99, performing unlicensed orogolomistician surgery on Mustapha Al-Turk en route to a TKO victory back on June 13. While the Croat is agog over Lesnar's masterful mutilation, he does raise an interesting point in that the Champ has never really been tested by a striker who can utilize the tried-and-true method of leg kicks to chop down a larger opponent. I wonder if Filipovic had anyone in particular in mind? Maybe he does -- though I'm sure Junior Dos Santos might have a thing or two to say about it first on September 19. What say you?
