Brock Lesnar has obtained exactly 20% of his wins via submission and the rest he earned through brutal gorilla fists to the brain, an immeasurable amount of times until his opponent’s bodily functions stop working. It’s a hell of a way to go out, some gargantuan individual with a sword on his chest and some strange demonic creature inked on his back opening a blitzkrieg of hammerfists and elbows to every part of your face. If you ever find yourself in such a scenario, it’s obvious that karma is coming back at you from that handicap person you used to make fun of in junior high school. Shame on you.
Former 3x ADCC and 4x World’s Jiu-Jitsu champion, Murilo Santana, has a strong inclination to believe that Brock Lesnar’s jiu-jitsu coach is not only a better teacher than the Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, but he believes Lesnar will submit Junior Dos Santos in the second round at UFC 131.
“I think the ground game will be the deciding factor in this fight. Brock will take Dos Santos down immediately and then we will see who has trained the hardest. Both have great coaches. Even though Comprido is more accomplished than Nogueira in Jiu-Jitsu, I don’t think this will matter. It’s about the student and their willingness to learn. I know Comprido very well and I know Brock Lesnar has a very strong Jiu-Jitsu game for MMA thanks to Comprido of course. Dos Santos also has very good hips and is hard to hold but in my honest opinion, I don’t think it will be enough. A lot of people overlook the fight with Frank Mir who has very strong Jiu-Jitsu. I knew immediately that Comprido prepared Brock well for Frank. There are a lot of things that they did on the ground that most people who don’t know Jiu-Jitsu cannot see. For example, the ‘lockdown’. Frank tried to use the lockdown on Brock, but Brock shut it down perfectly. I’m sure this was something they prepared for. I know Robert Drysdale sat down with Frank after the fight and watched the tape. They went through every technique Brock used and what Frank should have done to counter or avoid it. It was perfect top control from the half guard. The reason he is adapting so well to Jiu-Jitsu is because of his wrestling background. If it wasn’t for that, it would have taken him a long time to learn the stuff he has already learned in the four years he has been training Jiu-Jitsu. In the end, I trust Comprido and I know he has a surprise for Dos Santos. My prediction for the fight is if it stays standing, Dos Santos will take it. But once they go to the ground, that will be the moment where Dos Santos will lose. I have Brock winning by submission in the second round.”
Not sure what one would have to do to escape any submission from Brock Lesnar, despite the fact that we’ve only seen it once in Lesnar’s MMA career. However, if any of you would like to visit the DeathClutch Gym and find out, just make sure you get it on camera and put it on YouTube. [Source]
