Brashear was an excellent fighter, though quite a few people on these boards had no love for his fighting style. If he did not get a favorable grip on his opponent at the beginning of the fight, he would tie them up, get them in close with his exceptional strength, and take the tie. "Huggy Bear" was his nickname, and it was well deserved, but he rarely lost, and was pretty effective imo. He could play a regular shift, which unfortunately is rare these days for that kind of player. Hopefully they'll find another one like him some day.
