Brock Lesnar: The 7 Tools Needed for Another UFC Title Run

Recently, former UFC heavyweight-champion Brock Lesnar announced his return to MMA after a long recovery from a second bout of diverticulitis. Following a surgical procedure that removed a significant portion of his colon, Lesnar has taken some time off and assures that he is at 100 percent.

"I feel like a new man. I feel healthy, strong—I feel like I used to feel." Lesnar said courtesy of a Fusion Ammunition ad.

With this statement, Brock has made it very clear that neither his health issues nor ring rust will affect his training or performance in a five-round title-eliminator bout which UFC president Dana White has targeted for UFC 141 in late December against K-1 champion Alistair Overeem. The victor will take on the winner of Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos on the first UFC on Fox.

Losing his belt to Cain Velasquez has served to prove to Lesnar and everyone else that there are gaping holes in his game. After being given top-quality opposition each bout, he has not had time to develop as a fighter. The new generation of heavyweights have arrived, and the former champion must evolve to keep up, let alone challenge for the title.

Lesnar has already achieved a great deal in mixed martial arts while not even close to his full potential as a fighter, and if he is indeed willing to learn and improve his overall game, we could potentially see an incredibly dominant Lesnar tearing up the heavyweight ranks once more.

Assuming that he will be 100-percent healthy and ready to make a run at the heavyweight title again, follow along as I walk through several points that he will need in order to not only fix the holes in his game, but he will add to and augment his arsenal to make him truly unstoppable in a division full of tough opponents.
