Lesner wins impressively. Just watched on PPV. So who is next?
winner of Mir/Nog I'm guessing
yeah and mir already beat lesnar once....
its a dark day for MMA when a WWE guy wins a belt. i don't care what his NCAA wrestling background was, he made a mockery of himself when he went into pro wrestling and will never be accepted by real MMA fans......
All in all...good fight and it is well deserved. It was a good punch that landed hard enough to do a little damage to Couture and finish him off with some ground and pound....
Mir did beat Lesnar once but that was Lesnar's first fight in UFC...he was still extremely green and panicked when Mir grabbed on to his leg. Before that Mir was getting his rump handed to him. Definitely if Mir can beat Nogueria it will be a nice little revenge for Lesnar to face Mir again next year for the title. As for it being a dark day in MMA for a former WWE guy to win the belt...that's crap...imo of course. Why??? because pretty much what you are saying is that Lensar sold out when he joined WWE. Pro wrestling is fake but it's entertainment with physicality and although it's staged there's some stupid and crazy shoot that goes on during matches...MMA is a pure, physical sport that is entertaining to alot of us...the difference is the staged part. I don't believe for one second that Lesnar sold out. Yeah you said you don't care about his NCAA wrestling background but he was good. Alot of the amateur wrestlers out there do not consider it selling out...that's ignorant. Would you call Dan Hodge a sell out because he did pro wrestling? He did what he felt was the best thing for him and his family...so no you wouldn't say he sold out...and alot of the amateur wrestlers out there don't consider it selling out...why because hell they have the Dan Hodge Award that goes out to the top college wrestler... the wrestling heisman trophy. So other amateur wrestlers don't turn their backs or call them sell outs for going into pro wrestling to earn more money than they would doing any other job.
At least give him credit for standing in a ring and giving a good fight.
why are you so incredibly rude to me anytime you say anything to me?? did i piss in your cheerios??
i'm not going to have any discussion with someone who calls me "ignorant" for not wanting a goddamn pro wrestler to tarnish a sport that i have been following from the very start of UFC.
I'm not incredibly rude to you anytime I say anything to you. I hardly respond to anything you say...I was merely giving my opinion on everything just like you gave your opinion. Some one needs to grow some thicker skin if that's the case.
You're entitled to your opinion. I didn't mean to offend you by saying that amateur wrestlers don't call it a sell out because that would be ignorant.
I do have a question for you though...
why all the hostility for Lesnar? you say you don't want a "goddamn pro wrestler" to tarnish a sport that you have been following from the very start of UFC...well what's your opinion on Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn? Both did WWE. Did they make a mockery of themselves? IMO, they didn't tarnish the sport.
