It’s hard to proclaim that any fighter in the UFC betting, especially after just 5 MMA betting bouts is on his way to becoming one of the all time greats of the sport, but if heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar puts on an impressive showing in the upcoming UFC 116 betting event, he will indeed be on that path.
In the history of UFC betting there have been any numbers of great heavyweight champions that have enjoyed success in the ring and acclaim by critics. Some have even been inducted into the UFC betting Hall of Fame.
But none of them have had the potential to become as big a superstar or as dominant a fighter as Lesnar will have if successful in his UFC 116 odds event. Lesnar is bigger, stronger, faster and better athlete than any of the great UFC betting heavyweight champions of the past.
And he’s also got a lot more name recognition than even the most successful of UFC odds champs in this weight division have ever had. A well known figure around thanks to his days as a performer in the WWE circus he brings a level of celebrity into the Octagon that no heavyweight fighter ever has.
Right now the only thing that stands between Lesnar and total domination of the UFC odds competition in the heavyweight class is Shane Carwin. Carwin is a good looking fighter in his own right and has a perfect 12-0 record in the MMA betting up to this point in his career. But he’s never faced the level of competition that Lesnar has in his previous UFC betting matches and he’s never faced a fighter like Lesnar.
The thing about Lesnar that’s so scary for UFC betting opponents and so intriguing for MMA betting fans is the fact that he hasn’t even scratched the surface of his talent or his capabilities as cage fighter.
He’s only fought in 5 MMA betting matches to this point and already he’s picked up the world heavyweight title belt. Granted his 4-1 lifetime record doesn’t seem all that impressive on paper, but consider that his wins have come against the likes of seasoned veterans and legends like Frank Mir and Randy Couture and it’s not difficult to see why everyone has such high hopes for this fighter.
