This fight is going to answer a lot of questions for both fighters. Now, for whoever saw the Brock Lesnar/ Frank Mir fight, you know that, even though Brock lost the fight, he answered the question of "Can he fight?"
Personally to me that fight was a controversial one. All he needs is the experience and that will come in due time.
The man simply hates to lose, and I am sure that after the Mir fight, I do believe that he went straight to the gym train harder and started to study films longer. The man is an insane competitor who will not stop until he gets the results he wants and he usually does.
He did show signs of potential of becoming one of the best heavyweights in a long time. Can't you tell that I am a huge fan of this guy?
I have been watching him since his college days at the University of Minnesota, and I told myself and pretty much all who know me, that if he ever got into the octagon, he could make a huge impact there.
Now Heath Herring is one of my favorite fighters to come from the PRIDE world. He is a very good striker with a very good ground game.
When you have faced the likes of Mirko Cro Cop, Wanderlai Silva, "Minotauro" Nogeira, and Fedor Emelianenko, and you are only 30 years old, you are either crazy or really good.
I think Herring is both (Hence the nickname of "The Texas Crazy Horse"). Now that he has totally rededicated himself not only to training, but he is now watching what he eats now, thanks to a nutritionist he acquired after the "Minotauro" loss.
With that in mind, you are looking at a more dangerous Heath Herring.
All in all, I see Brock pulling out a victory with a TKO in the first. If that does not happen, I see a TKO in the second.
Brock has too much brute force and now he has the knowledge. I do believe he will be ready. Especially since it is being held in his hometown!
Now comes the time when I hear your thoughts. Do you agree or disagree? Your thoughts are more than welcome here. Until I write my next predictions for UFC 87, this is Balistik signing out.
"MMA ALL THE WAY!!"
