"What Brock needs more than anything are good sparring partners that can kickbox and grapple, so he's gotta get some guys in his camp that can actually throw down with good striking, good takedowns, good takedown defense. I'm sure the goal for that camp will be to bring some good strikers in. [Velasquez] is real tough, there's a big size difference between Brock and him though, the power factor. He's a good qwrestler so he can actually stop stuff, get out of stuff, but I don't know if he's used to going with someone as big and powerful as Brock."
Lesnar coach Eric Paulson tells Marcos Villegas that Cain Velasquez will present a significant challenge when he goes head-to-head with the division champion at UFC 121 on Oct. 23 in Anaheim. The big story surrounding the heavyweight championship bout is the size difference between champion and challenger, but the Lesnar camp is confident that "Brown Pride" will succumb to the power of the former WWE star. Anyone disagree?
