    Star Could Brock Lesnar Possibly Defeat Fedor Emilianenko?

    On one hand, there is the actual legendary Russian fighter who is known by his first name: Fedor.

    The other hand holds a former WWE Champion, who is now Dana White's UFC Heavyweight Champion of the World (typed Grandma while choking).

    Could newcomer Brock Lesnar, the former "professional" wrestler, even qualify to tie Fedor's shoes, let alone hope to pull off a win against an actual legend of the sport of MMA?

    Naturally, I do not think so.

    Regardless of what anyone tells me, I have seen Fedor handle "giants" in the ring before, and I pity Brock and Dana White for their delusions of grandeur in thinking that this result could ever be possible.

    After many years as the reigning Sambo Champion of his native Russia, using the most rudimentary training methods available to fighters today, Fedor finished only once as the third place winner after being considered as being untouchable.

    Lesnar's reign was much shorter in the WWE and will be notoriously brief in the UFC.

    Touted as a natural MMA fighter, Lesnar did have a respectable run as a champion wrestler in college, which has been considered to be a springboard to becoming a champ in the UFC. Matt Hughes and Chuck Liddell are other examples of this.

    Lesnar has had a year and a half, approximately, of actual BJJ and other forms of MMA fighting. In spite of having fists the size of Texas, Lesnar has not knocked anyone out yet.

    A fact I find most curious for a man his size.

    His submission skills have escaped my notice, if I ever have seen him attempt to use one. I remember seeing him submitted though, in his first meeting with Frank Mir.

    As with anyone who has become a champion after only five fights, there is little evidence of Lesnar's actual style or skills.

    Lots of evidence of his cocky overconfidence exists, however, and fans and foes alike have seen him froth at the mouth and go to great lengths to dishonor his opponents and even UFC sponsors in his post fight shenanigans.

    The attitude of a champion has totally passed Mr. Lesnar by. Not even Miss Manners could rehabilitate this man, although Dana White has certainly tried his best efforts to do so after UFC 100.

    Fedor is calm and very humble after his fights, some of which were so brief that he barely broke a sweat. He is worthy of being a world champion. Honorable men such as Fedor, at least in sports, are in very short supply.

    In my opinion, Fedor is not going to fall prey to the Brock hype. He will beat Brock as quickly and completely as my dog Misty demolishes her milk bones. If he joins the UFC, he will probably retire as an undefeated Heavyweight Champion.

    Fedor is the man.

    Dana and the Fertitta brothers would be wise to start placing big bets on him.

    Is it possible? yes. Will it happen? eh, it'll be a hell of a match.

    but most likely will consist of a quick exchange of punches followed by Lesnar crying to be let out of the octagon

    Possible? It's probable. Brock Lesnar is a terrible match up for Fedor, (if such a thing exists). Brock may be th underdog today, but in 9 months, a year, right around then, Brock is your favorite. The guy continues to improve and he needs to only utilize a couple of positions to win. A. Take down. B. control guard. C. slowly pound away. repeat as needed. Brock is your winner. Fedor is human, he has been defeated before and he has been in trouble numerous times. He can be beaten, especially against a monster like Brock who has the skill and athleticism like no one else in the division.

    The author of this article is an idiot. Fedor may have beaten big men before. He's never...EVER faced a big man that has the physical tools that Brock does. Brock is huge, strong, but also insanely fast. I'd say there's a pretty good chance Brock beats Fedor.

    I think it truely depends on how Lesner develops in the future. Right now, Fedor would destroy him. Lesnar has no BJJ experience to compete with Fedor. However, if Lesnar can get a decent guard and possibly a few submissions from the bottom, he can give Fedor a match

    I concur with part 1. I think Fedor beats Lesnar. Lesnar's chin still has yet to be tested. As soon as he let Mir up and got cracked, he took it right back down to the mat. Make no mistake. Fedor will hit him.

    A. Why does Brockk need BJJ against Fedor? Fedor's game is Judo and Sambo with some wicked striking mixed in there for good measure.

    B. Why would Brock look to finish this from the bottom with a submission when Minotauro, (arguably the best submission big man in the game) couldn't catch Fedor? Brock's game is the top game.

    And Brock wouldn't be on bottom unless he got rocked badly.
