Herring a bad match-up for Lesnar? (video interview)

Heath Herring is all mohawk and confidence in this interview with MMA Rated. At the end Ariel asks Herring for a kiss

Is it just me does Ariel have a knack for getting these fighters to loosen up on camera?

  • Bad Monkey says:

    I think Brock is in big f**king trouble. The end.

  • Bruce says:

    Heath sounds like Seth Rogan when he speaks.

  • Bad Monkey says:

    Yeah, but Seth Rogen that will kick you in the face!

  • darkmetal says:

    I think that Herring’s biggest weakness is the ground where Lesnar has his greatest strength. Herring was able to beat Kongo, which was impressive, but Kongo is not known as a “Ground guy” so we never have seen him take on a guy as powerful as Lesnar and win. Jake Obrien made Herring look really bad…

    If it turns into a stand up battle I would give Herring the win, but I don’t think it will be, do you?

  • flassasin24 says:

    I had seen the video on youtube and was pretty sure that it was Heath Herring who received that pre-fight kiss on the lips, but I never knew for sure. I guess that cleared it up.

  • Imbecile says:

    I don’t think this is a very good match-up for Heath. I love the guy, and he has always been an exciting fighter, but unless he catches Lesnar with a big knee or something when Lesnar shoots for the takedown, I think it is going to be a long night for Herring.

    Also, I really don’t care for that interviewer at all. He seems kind of arrogant and annoying.

  • Mike Wolfe says:

    I don’t think that Herring can keep it standing, and Lesnar would be stupid to try. Lesnar is so strong and such a good wrestler that he’ll be able to take Herring down and pound him out pretty quickly. Mir’s Jits saved him, but I’ve never seen similar skills from Herring.

  • Brian McG says:

    Herring is such a Douche. I hope he gets his ass kicked

  • Bill says:

    Heath is a great fighter, but Lesner is a monster, who will take Heath down eventually and win this fight. I think Mir got extremely lucky that the fight was stopped, and was stood back up. Otherwise Lesner had a quick win. Lesner is the real deal as far as I can see. If he started with lesser competion, like everyone else, we would be talking about him in a whole different light. GO BROCK!

  • sven says:

    I think Heath is great match up. His ground work is weak and his stand up is not all that great either. He’s just not a dangerous fighter.

  • Rich S. says:

    I know Heath Herring has been in wars.. and i know Herring has fought the best fighters in the world.. that’s definitely true..

    but SINCE he became a member of the UFC, his performances have been.. ummm.. not up to par, if you will..

    his first fight [in the UFC] = a slow fight in which he didn’t even try to defend takedowns, and he: “didn’t know this was gonna turn into a wrestling match”

    second fight: a slow decision win over an opponent [Imes] he greatly outmatched..

    third fight: losing, losing, losing, head kick, ohhhhhhh!! , losing, losing, losing, lost..

    fourth fight: his fight with Kongo was actually his best in the UFC yet.. but, i wasn’t impressed.. first of all, Kongo seemed off to me.. i mean, in the one place where he should dominate [the feet], he wasn’t working his leg/mid/high kicks, and he wasn’t even defending the takedowns.. and on the ground, Herring wouldn’t punch him in the face.. knees to the body aren’t a bad idea, but you have to punch him in the face every now and then..

    i think Lesnar’s going to be 2-1 after this fight..
    my only worry is Lesnar’s gas tank, and i’m sure he can hold his own in cardio after a career in which you “perform” 2-3 nights a week for 15-30 min. at a time..

    Lesnar will be the attacker on the feet.. he won’t stop moving when it hits the ground [i mean, did you see that spin-around in the Mir fight?? it was beastly!!] and i just think that Herring will break/lose motivation after being outworked in those positions..

    i just don’t see how Herring’s pretty much an accomplished wrestler, yet he gets pissed when it goes to the ground [you’d know what i’m talking about if you’ve seen his post-fight interview for the O’Brian fight].. and i’m sure that’s PRECISELY where it’s going in this fight..

    i’m not finding a way Herring can win here..
    all i know, is that Brock wasn’t hit in the face in either of his last two fights..
    so, he might have a weak chin, and if anyone can test it, it’s Heath..
    i’m hoping Brock’s spending countless hours in the Gym getting pounded, to get used to headkicks and haymakers..
    he’s only been leg-kicked twice in his 2 fight career and both times he grabbed the kicks and took his opponent down.. so, i’m not worried about the leg kicks..

    all in all, i’m thinkin’ Herring’s gonna have to pull a submission out of his ass, or Knock Lesnar Out before Lesnar pummels him.. i’m not liking Herring’s chances..

  • Herring will need to get a lot luckier than Mir did to win this fight! Lesnar is the strongest man in UFC and a world class wrestler. I am a huge Mir fan but so say he got lucky is a huge understatement! The stand up from 2 punches to back of head with no warning is what saved him from being hammerfisted thru the Octagon!!! I will be astonished if this fight goes past 2 minutes w Lesnar winning ground and pound. BTW seeing as though Lesnar is a huge worker, after being submitted in 2nd fight u had better believe he has focused on defending the submission game!

  • Batman says:

    What I think is funny is the real main event is Brock Lesnar vs Herring he is obviously the big draw just check the ppv buys for UFC 81.

  • Donk says:

    I remember when Fedor took him down at will, beat his face into a pulp for nine minutes, then Heath getting a yellow card for crawling to the edge of the ring to stick his head out so fedor couldn’t hit him anymore.

    Herring doesn’t have great take down defence, so i think Brock is going to beat on him till Heath tries to jump out the cage and leg it out-the-back between rounds.

    But Heath’s escapes are pretty good from his back. I think the only way Heath is gonna win this is by a knee-bar or a foot lock. If he could get to his knees with Brock on top and roll into it, this could be his only chance.
