Making The Case For Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar had the MMA world a buzz in February of this year.  Making his UFC debut against former UFC HW Champion Frank Mir, everyone was asking…is Lesnar for real?  Lesnar battered Mir all but about 20 seconds of the minute and a half fight…and one mistake cost him the match…a submission loss.  Now Lesnar returns at UFC 87 against savvy MMA veteran Heath Herring, and has said that this match is do or die for him.

This match up is an interesting one…Herring likes to keep the fight standing…and obviously Lesnar is primarily a wrestler.  During his UFC tenure, Herring has had problems avoiding the takedown against good wrestlers…hell even against not so good wrestlers.  Jake O’Brien took Herring down at will and Nogueira took Herring down when he wanted to.  So if those are any indications of anything…it’s that Lesnar will be able to do it as well.  While Herring does have submission wins…he does not have the submission acumen of Frank Mir.
