Brock Lesnar vs. JDS: TUF 13 on Spike TV—The Underrated Intellect of MMA
One thing I’m always amazed by when I chat with professional mixed martial artists or formally interview them is how unexpectedly articulate and ostensibly smart they are (for the most part). I don’t think there are any could-a-been brain surgeons in the group, but they don’t limit themselves to monosyllabic clichés.
Remember, a lot of these monsters are former collegiate wrestlers and—for whatever reason—I always found those to be some of the most cerebral of the athletes during my time in school.
And Lesnar’s first impressions as coach are reinforcing the image.
His approach belies the juiced-up meathead many consider him to be—he’s taking a measured, personal approach to evaluation.
JDS is at a disadvantage in the language department, but he’s no dummy. If you only have on elite skill, wresting is probably a good one to emphasize. Especially when you’re unsure of everyone’s capabilities.
