Plus theres credibility, he will get more of that in the UFC as compared to the WWE.

Do I think he took Mir seriously, no I honestly dont.

Could he be a force? Yes. Look at the guys raw talent.

Was he in the main event because of any other reason but the UFC would make mad money off marketing him? Probably not.

You think hes gonna be getting paid 250k a fight if he loses 4? Please... think!

Hes taking it seriously, if he wasn't the money would stop real fast.

Point taken. Im not saying hes not going to take all his next fights seriously, im just saying he didn't take this one seriously.

Did you not see All Access? Silly me, after seeing his work out routine i should have known he wasn't taking Mir seriously. Just because he mispronounced his name (maybe intensionally) doesn't mean he wasn't taking his seriously..

I think you just like to argue with me for the sake of arguing.

I've got valid points. Maybe speculation, but so is yours 'intensionally mispronouncing his name'.

Hey, why not do a Razor All access show, for one day, i'll be looking pritty good too. Doesn't mean I go home and study my next fight, especially if the payday is already there.

Lesnar is in sick shape, he trains like that all the time. You think when he wasn't getting ready for a fight, he was training? Look at the guy, that takes years of dedication.

Considering working out average you gain 10 pounds a year.

I looked up the wwe salaries and he makes about somewhere near a million a year..Not including money he gets from sponsors,t-shirts,action figures..etc. The reason he left was because he didn't agree with Vince and maybe money issues...Im pretty sure he isn't making much more if at all now.

We'll you saw the stats. He made 250k on saturday , which would of been 450k if he had won. Now he will fight about 3-4 times a year, plus all his bonuses. I'de say thats as good as, if not better. Wouldn't you say? And much more room for growth, stats indicate that the UFC is bigger than WWE, and getting way bigger.

To say flat out he would make more coin in the WWE, would be an understatement.

What? were are these stats that indicate UFC is larger then WWE?
Not to mention WWE fighters perform weekly, UFC fighers perform quarterly.
WWE fighters sell more Tshirts and action figure bullshit to little kids.

I wouldnt say that Brock is in it for a payday completely, he is, but he isn't. Started off in a small show, it was only one but at least it was a different show rather than jumping into the UFC right away.

Lesnar had no job after he quit wrestling in 2005, he is making some good $$$ in MMA oh yes, but he made more in WWE. WWE is global, they sell more merch and other crap like bail3yz stated.

As far as them showing WWE footage as pre-fight footage, I remember watching him powerbomb and land backbreakers on men that aren't exactly small in their own frame. It takes alot of power and energy to throw dudes around like that, that shit ain't easy, it may be fake but its definately not easy. And I think this is why that footage was included, not because they wanted to advertise WWE.

I don't think he took Mir seriously either, Lesnar struck me as the type of guy that wanted to get right into the mix and take over the HW division where ever he ended up. I came to this conclusion after his victory over that can back in June or July. "Lets get some titles on the line..." he said something like that, Yeah right chump, your going to get a title shot after one freakin victory. I also think that he has a hard time respecting anything that doesn't invloving using your huge muscles to perform IE Brazilian Jui Jitsu. "The Muscle Assholes" as George Carlin would put it. We all what these guys were like in High School, problem with Brock is, he still hasn't left High School.

I love it, good stuff. Finally someone who agree's with me.

Just because someone new in your board posts, doesn't mean they are a troll. A-Holes.
