On November 15, 2008 in only his third UFC fight, facing off against UFC legend and hall of famer Randy Couture, Brock Lesnar's MMA star shot off soon after the referee called a halt to the fight in the second round of a scheduled five, as Lesnar's giant mitts were thrown down in a hammer like fashion with mean intentions on Randy's unfortunate face. Fast forward now almost two years later, and the aptly regarded man-beast Lesnar received a beatdown of his own by a smaller, quicker and more technical fighter in Cain Velasquez.
Its amazing how you can go from being considered all but an unbeatable all-conquering champion, to a somewhat humbled contender needing to prove himself to the MMA world once again. Alas, welcome to MMA, where on any given day, any fighter can win. Where a champions reign is considered long and prestigious at just 2 or 3 title defenses.And where you can go from being on top of the world to a flat out nobody after just one bad fight.
Brock has to start over again somewhat and try to rebuild and adapt himself if he is to ever to be the UFC heavyweight champion again. Given his complete destruction by the hands of Cain Velasquez, the fact that he is now 33 years of age and his next task is a big one in knockout specialist Junior Dos Santos; one has to question if there is enough time for Brock to develop into his full potential.
The following is a list of fights that would make Brock the legitimate number one heavy weight in the world and propel him to MMA stardom once again.
