BROCK LESNAR THE FUTURE OF SUBMISSION GRAPPLING IN MMA?
No, Grappler. Not at all. Although he did surprise me with that arm triangle business against Shane Carwin (who seemed to invite the choke as a baby does his mama's bosom).
However, Shinya Aoki, my grappling brethren, is definitely doing the Lord's Work (so to speak) in the name of grappling in MMA. If you missed his fight at DREAM 15 against Kawajiri this past weekend, then have a look (don't be squeamish):
[Incidentally, he tried some of this stuff on me back in '05 when we rolled in Shibuya. No tapping by DSTRYR (and yes, he tapped to one of mine - that's how we roll around here)].
