Ok guys right off this the first time ive wrote anything like this so if it isnt all that great please cut me a break here but I hope its not that bad and everyone has an opinion on the subject. 

If any other HW in the entire UFC would have did what Lesnar did to Mir at UFC 100 everyone would go nuts.  But since it was Brock Lesnar everyone hated and booed him for it because he wrestled for WWE and beat up UFC hero Randy Couture.

Why are people mad when Lesnar doesn't like them anymore than they like him?  Many moons ago Ali did in boxing exactly what Lesnar is doing in MMA, by talking trash and backing it up.  Why when Lesnar does this, does it make him worse than say Rampage Jackson or Matt Serra?!? 

And for those of you who say Lesnar wants the UFC to be sports entertainment not a sport thats just crazy.  Do you same people know that pro wrestling is called that because its fake? Brock's UFC matches are far from fake.

I wont tell you that I dont think anyone in sports ever threw a fight or took a fall, but look at Mir's face.  Mir has a few black belts and is one of the more respected HW fighters in the world and Brock ran over him like a nobody.  In his short UFC career, Lesnar mauled names like Heath Herring, Randy Couture, and Mir.

The sky is the limit. 

I also can't understand why people would say this man doesnt have the right to hold the UFC's HW title.  Like I said earlier, he beat a UFC Hall Of Famer in Couture, and a possible UFC Hall of Famer and former UFC HW champion in Frank Mir.

And I understand he just walked in and fought these people, but he did after all beat them.

Who else in the UFC right now has beat those kind of fighters in a row in the fashion he has?  Nobody has done what this guy has done in his first few fights but I dont think its cool to hate something for no good reason besides that its different. 

I guess my point is that I'm an MMA fan excited that this might be the GSP or Silva of the HW division the biggest division of them all.  This guy has shown every sign of being just as dominant.

In my opinion hes shown signs of being the most dominant fighter ever.

Does he talk alot of trash after he wins?

Yes he does, but he backs it up with his fights, and he improves by leaps and bounds.

I think alot of people should find less reasons to hate Lesnar and more to get excited about what this means for MMA!!
