Brock Lesnar wins in MMA debut June 3, 2007

Brock Lesnar defeated Min Soo Kim at the K1 Fight Dynamite card Friday night. Round 1 blow-by-blow: They rub faces in the staredown and separate. Lesnar barely touches gloves and moves forward, getting an immediate takedown. Lesnar throws side punches in the half guard and tries to pass to side mount. Lesnar still trying to pull his foot out and finally does getting a full mount. Lesnar lands some punches while trying to push Kim’s head down and Kim taps out.

Winner: Brock Lesnar, submission (strikes), 1:10 of Round 1.

Kim just kind of gave up there, no big shot or anything special. Royce Gracie, who won his K-1 Dynamite bout as well, served as Lesnar’s trainer.

Here is an early YouTube video of the fight.

Where does the former WWE champion go from here? In the post fight interview Brock expressed his desire to get a heavyweight title shot, presumably in the UFC. There’s nothing wrong with shooting for the top after an impressive performance, though Brock is far from ready to face the Fedor’s, Couture’s, and Barnett’s of the world. Fortunately for Lesnar the heavyweight landscape in MMA isn’t the deepest out there, and someone with his name value will draw in money. Imagine Brock facing someone like Cheick Kongo or Assuerio Silva. There are no shortages of mid tier heavyweight talents out there, and adding Lesnar to the mix automatically increases profile.
