I often think of this feud due to the similarities between the two. Other than visually Halme (Borga) was an accomplished boxer and olympic powerlifter. I'm sure we're all familiar with Lesnar's accolades. Both were the same height with Lesnar giving up about 15 lbs. If we had a Rocky Balboa scenario and both men met in their prime, who would you consider the victor? There's not too much to go on with Borga only being in WWF for 6 months and NJPW matches were mostly tag format. But personally I think it would've been an interesting feud same age or not.

Are we talking shoot fight? If so we all know Brock is more bark than bite like he showed in his lackluster ufc career. Id take borga.

I didnt realize beating one of the greatest of all time in Couture, a solid journeyman in Herring, The best submission fighter in his weight class(at that time) Mir and Shane Carwin was a bad career. Well I guess losing to the reigning Heavyweight champion and a guy who was on performance enhancers completley take away from your career.

Cain raped him, and Brock hasnt taken any PED's right? Couture was 45 and past his prime.

Couture was never all that good, but Lesnar was pretty dominant until his weakness was discovered (his striking defense). Once Carwin exposed him in the first round, he was doomed against any dominant striker (Cain, Overeem).

And Borga sucked in MMA. He went 0-4, including getting dominated by a much younger Couture.

Brock's stand up is shit but his wrestling is lethal, if he could take him down and start grounding and pounding like the Couture/Mir fights he'd easily take it

wrestling is the ultimate decider in MMA nowadays

Brock Lesnar's ufc career was subpar. He was 5-3.... He knew he couldn't cut it so he left.
lesnar was 4-1 before his illness having beaten two reigning ufc heavyweight champions. he had nothing more to prove in ufc and surprised everybody by even returning at all, dana after his first bout stated "he might never fight again" http://www.tmz.com/2009/11/16/brock-lesnar-dana-white-mayo-clinic-mono-ufc-wwe/

borga would be destroyed by a prime lesnar within the first 10 seconds. heath herring was 10 times the fighter borga was and lesnar mauled him

yeah let's not forget when Brock fought Cain and Reem he was fighting with half his intestines removed, not that Cain and Reem aren't far superior fighters than Brock but he didn't stand a chance after his illness

Cain who is currently a pound for pound best beat his ass, your point? Brock never got caught in the ufc with PEDs, how many times has Overeem? How did this guy baloon up 40 pounds of muscle in a short time? Couture was just coming off two of his most impressive victories and Age never affected Couture untill his last 2 bouts. He had even said he felt fine and age had no part of it.

5-3 with a Title reign is lackluster? That's why he left. It had nothing to do with the serious illness that shortened his career, right? Intestinal sores that can rupture are no big deal.
