    Pat Miletich says within a year Brock Lesnar will be unstoppable. He just said it on Dave Meltzer's Wrestling Observer (Sirius Satellite Radio show... covers MMA as well).

    It's all over Sherdog as well, for those that don't like it over there.

    He definately has the potential to be, expecially at a camp like Miletich. The guy is a tremendous athlete and a great wrestler. I'm sure he'll transition well into the submission game and become a decent striker with time. In a few years I think he'll be really good given that he sticks with it.

    well you take a world class wrestler add freakish size and strength then add good training partners you will get a great fighter. It seems latley that a lot of ucf champs at least come from a amature wrestling background and lesnar is definatly one of the college greats in that catagory.

    Yeah I haven't heard anything about where but IFL seems like a great bet with the Miletich team in IFL. I doubt we'd see him in UFC for a while or atleast not for any shot for the title against Silvia.

    He's trimmed down quite a bit. Still a hefty 250 lbs id guess. He'd kick ass in UFC's HW division but would get wrecked like little susie on prom night in Pride.

    it takes more than "1 year" to become a good fighter let alone "unstoppable".

    MFS has a pretty good rep for turning good wrestlers into good MMA fighters

    hammerhouse has a pretty good rep for turning roidheads/wrestlers into great fighters too.

    yeah but MFS is more about taking that good wrestling base and building them into a 3-dimensional fighter. hammerhouse, maybe not so much

    lesnar v royce....would be worse then huges v royce, he would over power him neither would want to stand and lesnar is definatly comfortable on the ground.

    seeing how he's anywhere from 30 to 60lbs heavier at fighting weight, i would assume so

    Yeah it would be a sad thing if Lesnar had gone to Hammerhouse. It would be like Randleman all over again. Insane athlete with sooo much potential only he'd never learn sub defense. I don't really know anything about the innerworkings of that camp, but from what I hear they're a stubborn bunch.

    yeah I think anyone who would contend that hammerhouse > MFS has some sort of internal processing error
