Brock Lesnar: Athleticism > experience against Heath Herring at UFC 87?

"It's an entirely different type of fight [against Heath Herring and not Mark Coleman]. We're just getting ready for an all-around game now.... It's easy to work with a guy like [Lesnar who is athletic and has desire and a willingness to learn]. He has a great work ethic and he's a really fast learner."

Greg Nelson -- the mixed martial arts trainer for Brock Lesnar -- is out to prove that raw athleticism, power and hunger can trump experience when his fighter takes on veteran Heath Herring at UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy" at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn., on August 9. Lesnar was originally booked to take on Coleman -- a UFC Hall of Famer -- before he had to withdraw because of injury. Interesting fight.
