Loaded question, but who was the better wrestler/grappler and who was the better MMA fighter? Why?

Kerr fought in a time when the level of ability was much lower and still his biggest win is Enson.

Enson isn't even a HW.

Lesnar has wins over Randy, Carwin, Mir and HH.

Lesnar has by far the better CV.

Lesnar takes this.

Kerr wasn't even top dog in the late 1990s. Phone Post

stayrad - Pride rules both in prime Kerr kills Brock.

If give Brock the edge with wrestling but Kerr could take a beating and give out a vicious one back Phone Post
Kerr couldn't take a beating and that was the problem. Phone Post

Lesnar by a lot

Probably one of the greatest fighters to grace the octagon. If he didn't have surgery he would be champ right now Phone Post

brock = kerr 2.0, like fedor = igor 2.0, but that's as reliable as mma math in this sport.. I can't imagine anyone getting a prime adcc-wrecking kerr down, nor a prime brock (on the mat OR the cage). both have chins, but can wilt under [albeit great] pressure - i.e. near-death via carwin smash or flush heath herring boot to the face (jesus!!), so brock could potentially out-cardio mark

I have a lot of respect for Kerr but pre-diverticulitis Lesnar destroys him, either by lopsided decision or GNP TKO.

Brock has actually beaten some really good fighters. Who did Kerr ever beat?

You can certainly tell who the newer fans are.

Kerr completely smashes Brock. 

I love the people saying Kerr couldnt take punishment, when Brock folded in 75% of his fights after geting hit once.

I'd say their wrestling was just about even. I can't see either of these guys getting a clean takedown.

Kerr had solid kicks, but would not be throwing them in this fight. It would turn into a standup battle between a guy who can't take a punch vs a guy who can't throw a punch.

I think Brock wins via holding Kerr against the cage and out cardioing him. Phone Post

It's clear that you are a new fan.

In a era when the HW div was weak Kerr's biggest win is a MW!

Wins over Randy, Carwin, Mir and HH are on another level to what Kerr has done in MMA.

Lesnar did come back after a ass kicking and win.

Kerr has never done that! Phone Post

Technically speaking, Kerr was a lot more well rounded. He could take a punch, he had decent kickboxing skill and his grappling was excellent defensively and pretty good offensively.

Brock has that NCAA gold, but Kerr also had some pretty decent wrestling credentials. Also, his size is the X-Factor in a wrestler vs. wrestler fight.

I'd say Kerr was better overall, but Brock beat better guys.

Kerr looked 'better' against cans.

Folded and lost against top ten guys.

Lesnar joined Fedor and maybe Nog in being the only HW to beat 3 top ten HWs in a row.

Coleman gives Lesnar a harder fight and Coleman dropped down to LHW due to Lesnar. Phone Post

Great but unfair question... The sport, the opposition and training techniques are relatively much more advanced since Kerr's era Phone Post
