He said they hadn't accomplished shit and well its true. Lesnar may only have 5 fights but they like a lot of people need to realize that his fame allowed him to instantly begin training full time at the highest level. Most fighters need to obtain a certain level of success near the highest level before they even begin training at that level. Lesnar's first year of training was likely the equivalent of the first 4 of most fighters. Lesnar has a lot he can teach these guys. They are being taken down constantly and yet are refusing to listen to a NCAA champ. Wrestlers of a lower caliber have been being brought in to learn wrestling by elite fighters like BJ Penn (Kos) and Rich Franklin (Hammill) and yet these guys are to big in there britches to listen to Brock. Don't get me wrong Brock made the mistake of trying to see who was the most dedicated when picking teams instead of who was the best fighter. He ignored the fact he did not have time to fix all there short comings. Unfortunately there lack of respect for him has basically made him unable to even begin to scratch the surface. Say what you want about Lesnar but how do you explain there disrespect for Hughes? The guy is a legend and one of the top 2 WW's of all time and these WW's are not even excited about the prospect of getting to work with him.
