If a prime Brock had fought in Pride back in the heyday, how would he have done?

I can't remember, wasn't price 2 10 min rounds then a 5 min round?

He'd be like a better wrestling version of Sapp

If it ain't Dutch, it ain't much - 

would have beat Fedor


Fedor more more skilled, more versatile, and had greater intangibles. Fedor would have been the favorite, for good reason.

Roided out prime brock with no stomach issues.

The one who mangled Mir.

Very well.

Got to remember - no testing means he’d have been twice the freak.

Imagine the damage he could have inflicted to Mir after he caught him eating his strawberries.

Agreed.


That said, without the cage wall, some of that is diminished.

Potential matchups with:


Fedor
Nog
CroCop
Barnett
Coleman
Fujita
Sapp



Would have been awesome.

Lesnar at his best is a contender in the "All Time" HW tournament.

Not unbeatable (nobody is), but as scary as anyone if he can do what he does best.


I think the Pride ring takes a little away from Brock.


I would favor Fedor and Nog.

Cro Cop would be very interesting.
He was a great ring general who could hurt a guy fast.

Some ultimate $tyle matchups there...

Brock actually had greater intangibles, with his athleticism he probably would have developed into a pretty good striker if he started training MMA right after his NCAA title win in 2000.

but brock would have been able to knee to the head of downed opponents. That's....a pretty good advantage for brock, considering he's gonna end up in top position on the ground for most of his fights in pride, if not all

I would say so. Coleman the first time and Randleman took fedor down with absolute ease.

 

Lesnar does the same, except that he does not get subbed or swept nearly as easily.

 

Fedor's best chance against lesnar would have been to face him before he started getting better in BJJ.

 

If lesnar faced fedor with a good amount of BJJ training, it would have been a massacre similar to lesnar vs mir 2, unless the ref stands them up quickly multiple times.

Prime pre stomach aids Brock with no testing and no 265lb weight limit??

With legal knees to the head on the ground? Dude would have been dangerous.

Not a blind Fedor fanboy but he would have beaten Brock.
But Brock would have done very well in PRIDE during its glory years.
