    MMA fans is Lesnar for real

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship is set for a major gamble.
    Heavyweight Brock Lesnar is about to become the beneficiary of the most hype of any debuting fighter in UFC history. With just one pro MMA match under his belt, he'll take on former heavyweight champion Frank Mir in the co-main event of UFC 81 on on Feb. 2 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
    Lesnar boasts impeccable credentials. He's a former NCAA heavyweight wrestling champion, and his pure athleticism is such that he made it all the way through Minnesota Vikings training camp even though he had not played football since high school.
    But can he hold his own with Mir, the man best known for breaking Tim Sylvia's arm?

    Lesnar does have an impressive amateur wrestling background and is in outstanding shape but I think he is not ready for a main event type match yet.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    He'a a good talent, but I personally don't like the guy. It's too soon for him to main event. He's been hyped beyond belief. Any victory beyond impressive will be a disappointment.

    Like Term said, he is way over-hyped. Depending on what Frank Mir shows up, Lesner could get hurt.
    It's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

    I think if they would give him some time he could be great, but I think they put him in way too soon with someone who could be as good as Mir. I just hope Mir doesn't gas out. Ever since he had his accident he hasn't been the same. Outcome.......... I think Mir is going to make him look like a joke just like he did to Tank when he made his return.

    I think Lesnar will lose. Badly. And that it will be his final fight in the UFC

    Both sides are overhyped IMO. There is just too much publicity for this fight and I think people will be disappointed.

    Brock Lesnar (record of 1-0-0) is a huge guy, but that won't mean much against a skilled fighter. His K1 fight against Min Soo Kim (record of 3-7-0) wasn't impressive. Lesnar tackled him and layed down on him and just ground and pounded. Lesnar was too big for him to get out from underneath. Lesnar is probably hoping he'll KO Mir too, but I don't think his chances are as good against a better competitor.

    Frank Mir (record of 10-3-0) is a little overhyped himself IMO. Mir had a bad car accident after the Sylvia fight and I don't think he's fought anyone good since? He's just being pomoted based on his prior record from 2004. I still think he'll hurt Lesnar if he trains hard for the fight like he should. If Lesnar gets his ass kicked he'll probably go back to WWE.

    I think mir will win. he looked better in his last fight. mir looks like he is getting back in shape. ( still has a way to go ) if mir comes ready to fight lesnar will be in a bad way. lesnar best chance is to keep it standing and hope for a ko. taking mir to the ground would be a bad thing to try. I know that i'm not going to waste my money on it. on a side note I thought it was a motorcycle accident but I guess it don't really matter.

    Tuff call for the UFC, they want Lesnar to be a big talant, but sening him out against a no-name wont help. IMO they know what they are doing, and they want Lesnar to win. Mir must not be in top shape.

    I dont know jack about Lesnar or Mir.
    I do know that most skilled MMAs are better fighters than the big asses.
    Thats one of the things that made this MMA-UFC stuff popular.
    Big ass fighters vs. smaller quicker MORE Conditioned fighters.
    Thats why Royce was sooo good.

    I know one thing, IAM NOT PAYING $45.00 to see this.
    Ill watch it in a year on Youtube

    Very tough call. Watched Lesnar on another show, think it was elite XC maybe, and Lesnar killed some little dude. I understand he is taking this seriously, but Mir has some good ground skills. The UFC is DESPERATE for heavyweights, Couture walks away, CroCop gets decimated in his fights (talk about over-hyped!) and they are left with Brandon "Im too small" Vera and Tim "I have no heart and no spine" Sylvia. I for one am sick of Arlovski and the rest of the crew, and Gabriel Gonzaga is a joke. Having said all that....I have no earthly idea, but I hope Lesnar gets his arm broke
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.
