Cool interview overall. After his decimation of Herring I am actually really excited to see Lesnar back in the Octagon. Going to decision was really good for him as far as ring time and knowing how his cardio holds up. Really hoping they set up Lesnar/Kongo



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS

Completely agree. Cardio was a big question for me and he answered it pretty well. I still wonder if he can do 25 mins against a guard like Nog's though.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Tssss... He's making it sound like WWE is for real. Common, have u ever seen a WWE wrestler with a cut or even a bruise after a "fight"?? I guess his contract with WWE still wouldn't let him say the truth on this farce.

Don't kid yourself. These guys take a beating. They perform like 300 nights a year and work hurt all the time.

Take a beating?? Do you think they would be able to perform 300 nights/year if they were hurt after a fight, I mean, a show? All I know is the average mmartist has a hard time just taking 4 bouts/year.
I just found it moronic that the interviewer compares WWE (not wresting, WWE) and UFC, they're 2 different worlds and there is no relevancy is such comparison. WWE is like going to the theater. Everything is 100% set and planned weeks ahead. Commentators just need to read their script like phone interviewers do when they call out people. I wonder if they even need to watch what is going on in the ring lol

I didn't say it was the same thing. I said it's tough. Things are planned out, but there are still injuries, and some are quite serious.

This guy might not know a ton about MMA, but Brock has been in both worlds, so asking him to compare the two is a pretty logical thing for an interviewer to do.

Many pro wrestlers are or addicited to pain killer or drugs, which they take to work thru the pain. Many pro wrestlers have dropped dead in recent years and a lot of them have been thru heart failure. Which is a sign of serious drug use through out life.

Steve Austin damn near broke his neck, Chris Benoit did break his neck, as did Kurt Angle. Davey Boy crushed two vertabrae, Shawn Michaels needed to have two vertabrae fused.

These are just a few of the injuries I can remember off the top of my head.



Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig

I think his original point was that although pro wrestling does produce injuries, the point of pro wrestling is to perform synchronized acrobatics in which each wrestler does his best to NOT hurt the other guy... MMA is the opposite.

Sure, pro wrestlers get hurt, but in MMA a fighter can expect to go to the hospital after most of their fights unless they are one of the tiny % that is so good (like anderson silva) that they can finish a fight without takin a serious injury on a regular basis.

In pro wrestling you can expect to go to the hospital as well, i mean cmon jumping do back flips off of a ring onto tiny mats, or through splintered tables is extremely dangerous, i can tell you this, the death toll is pro wrestling compared to MMA is much higher, take that into consideration before saying pro wrestling is easier.
