I see ALOT of MMA fans saying how Jones would put LESNAR away like it's no big deal and while I'll say that I'm a big LESNAR fan and all, I do recognize how hard it is to be out of the Octagon for a certain length of time and making a comeback is almost next to impossible, BUT, My heart says LESNAR would wreck the fuck out of Bones Jones and do it pretty fucking quick meaning, he'd take him to the ground and it would basically be all over.. I don't care how good Jones is, giving up that much weight in comparison to LESNAR while he's on top of you pounding the fuck out of you is all but guaranteed a disaster for Jones and a win for LESNAR.. Oh well.. Guess we'll never find out and if he's suspended for 2 years like I've read, then forget it.. LESNAR will be what?? 42 by then??? He'll most likely be long retired and made to lose to Roman fucking Reigns at whatever roman numeral WrestleMania we're up to now...
Brock looked so much better in his last outing, against Mark Hunt, than in his previous one, and at the time most of us thought of it as a triumph in his battle against the diverticulitis that had apparently derailed him for years. And it wasn't just that he looked so much healthier physically, he also seemed much more in the game mentally, given he was up against one of the hardest hitters in the history of the sport and in the past his achilles heel had been that he would mentally shut down when he got punched in the face. Even as a big Hunto fan I was stoked to see Brock not be the broken fighter we'd feared he might be. Then of course he pops, and none of us were really surprised, and he flushed all that good will down the bog.
But to your point, it's worth noting that Cain Velasquez was 245 when he beat Brock for the title. The current HW champ, Stipe Miocic weighs in around the same. Other top HWs (Junior Dos Santos, Alistair Overeem, Fabricio Werdum) also come in around that same 240-248 range. The consensus in the last half decade has been that 265+ is actually too big to be successful against the elite of the division - that the extra mass can end up as a liability in terms of agility and gas tank. And Jones was apparently up around 240 when he was suspended the last time.
Not that any of this is likely to matter until at least mid-2019 unfortunately.
