UFC 81 was a WWE PPV
One man's Opinion.
The UFC worked with the WWE for UFC 81, It was very evident from the clips they showed of Brock Lesnar showing us how awesome he is doing fake power bombs and back breakers. What the hell is that all about? The marketing and hype behind him was not a MMA fans dream fight, it was a ploy to draw in lots of people, call it entertainment if you will. Aren't we paying to see real fights? Not a phony wrestler bring in retarded WWE Fans?
Now you might say, oh brock lesnar is a force! hes amazing, give him some time to learn the submission game.
Listen, hes in it for the payday, and the UFC is doing it to sell tickets and bring WWE fans in (why would we want them anyway).
Why I think he isn't taking it seriously?
In the interviews, He was calling him Frank Mur. Now you might think that could be a common mistake. It isn't, because he should of been watching footage of mir, to know what to expect. Footage of Mir ISNT hard to get, at all. And if you watched one of his fights, goldie and rogan call his name out about 50 times in each of their fights. That tells me, he hasn't watched anything on mir at all. How can I watch a Jap MMA fighter in Pride compete, and know how to pronounce him name if talk of that fighter ever came up? And thats just a random. He should be living and BREATHING Frank Mir.
Even that leg lock wasn't very tight. And He has no idea how to defend that.
There will be more WWE "superstars" coming into the UFC. Everyone's joking about the Undertaker coming in, that may not be so far from the truth. As much as I respect dana for putting on great MMA fights (For a good price), this is total bullshit bringing in lesnar like that. He is a payday for Dana, and he exploited all of you to get it by marketing this as a real fight.
