Actually, Lesnar's toughness is called into question and with good reason. He turtles up when he gets hit, he shies away from strikes, basically as soon as he gets tagged he turns from a wrestling powerhouse to trying to find a way out. The ability to take a punch has nothing to do with toughness. Liddell can't take a punch, but without Dana in his ear telling him to retire he'd be out there fighting still. Thats tough (and stupid but thats another issue)

Re: people saying wrestling fake

Rush, I really don't know much about MMA, but wouldn't that stem from lack of defensive technique and conversely lack of offensive technique?

edit: From a striking standpoint that is.

Re: people saying wrestling fake

A part of me would like to see Liddell fight guys like Moussasi and Henderson, if he didn't have his easy job for the UFC, I think those fights would have been possible.

Lesnar is still green in MMA, what he has going for him is his phenomenal wrestling and his size. I agree that he can take his fair share of damage, he just doesn't know how to fight on the defensive. What he needs to work on is fighting off his back, something he probably never works on.

That's the only time a man can be brave.
