Ah see, you say "Brock Lesnar" as though we watch the show to follow fighting careers. No my friend. I don't know the names of any of them. I just watch it to see two full grown half naked men writhing around on the floor.
Now, some of the other ladies might follow it in a more professional manner. But that certainly wasn't the point of the party.

First time poster, long time reader, but as the "host" of the party, I thought I'd throw my two cents in, I think he is an excellent addition to the UFC and that he'll do well as a recognizable name to draw more fans, I did think that the fight lasted longer than I expected though... your thoughts?

I completely agree with you on all the points you made. As soon as I saw him drop heath herring on that first punch and muscled his way out of that Kamora i knew he was going to have it.
The dude is soo effing strong that heaths eye swelled shut after the first round. You could practically hear him thunder across the ring when they fought.
However, even though Brock Lesnar won, he didn't show much skill with the exception of grappling defense and basic punch defense (but then again, if your that strong you don't need an amazing amount of skill).
== later edit == After these few posts about MMA your advertisements at the top of the forum were showing MMA advertisments.
Let him get a few more fights under his belt, win or lose. This guy will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.
I think my favorite part about that fight was at the end when they showed Herring's ground beef for face, and Lesnar's nearly untouched face, I don't know if I hold alot of hope for his grappling skills given that he his so big and muscle-bound, but like you said, time will tell, cant wait for the new season of TUF...
