Brock Lesnar: "No comparison between me and Carwin"

http://www.fightersonlymagazine.co.u...=3212&offset=0

Quote:
Many fans are reading a lot into the fact that Shane Carwin was a Division II wrestling champion. Brock Lesnar isn’t one of them. The UFC heavyweight champion, who will defend his crown against Carwin at UFC 106, says he is in a different league to his challenger.

“There’s no comparison between Division I and Division II. The reason they have Division II is for the guys who can’t make it at Division I,” Lesnar told Yahoo! Sports. “That’s fine. They need to have something to feel good about themselves. Those guys have to have something to do with their lives.”

Nonetheless, he is taking the fight seriously and is running a training camp that he says is costing him “six figures”. It comprises a team of heavyweight sparring partners - including one NCAA Division 1 wrestling champion - who must all be fed, accommodated and paid, plus coaching staff.

“I take this very seriously. This camp costs me a lot of money. I’m fortunate to be able to do it. It’s a great environment,” he says. “A lot of these other guys, they travel around and try to find the right guys to work out with. This is best heavyweight camp in the world.”

All that money and effort is being expended on one goal - retaining his belt and the spot at the top of the UFC heavyweight division.

“I’m the UFC heavyweight champion and I will be until the day I decide I don’t want to be. And that isn’t any time soon. This is my time. People can like it or not,” he says.

Lesnar also revealed what he thinks of the talent he has seen on season ten of The Ultimate Fighter, which consists solely of heavyweights. He was not in the least bit impressed by Roy Nelson’s fight with Kimbo Slice last week.

“It looked like a couple of high school kids, a bar room brawl, The fat biker dude took his vest off and put ranch dressing on,” is his disparaging - and slightly odd - take on it.

Lesnar v Carwin headlines UFC 106, which takes place on Saturday November 21st at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Another trashy volley from Brock. It's all good. Twas inevitable once Carwin started after UFC100.

As much as I dont like to... I like Brock. He makes me laugh and fights like an Ogre. Came into UFC with a ton of cash and training camps on another level because of it. I've never seen anything quite like it. I hope he doesn't stay champ for too long as I'm sure I'll get bored of it.

If he crushes Carwin, I'll be mighty impressed. If Carwin takes him, I think I'll wet myself laughing.

The comments on Nelson vs Kimbo made me LOL.

I actually like Brock. His interviews always make me laugh. I think it's because you never know what he's gonna say or how dumb it's gonna sound. I think too many people hate on him because of his size. If you're not the underdog, you're not cool. But I can see how his remarks rub people the wrorng way. I think he's definitely gonna beat Carwin. I like Carwin too so I won't be sad to see either one as champ. Seems like Carwin's been talking a lot more trash than Lesnar though so I would kinda like Lesnar to make a statement with the whoopin he's prolly gonna give him.

I wish I could win a wrestling competition once ten years ago and then think I'm the best wrestler alive.

eerrrrrr wrong thread, my bad


If Carwin's cardio is where his teammates say it's at, Carwin by TKO rd 2-3 after Brock gets caught hard.

If his cardio sucks then Lesnar by decision or tko in a late round.

Let me say this, aside from the rant after he destroyed Mir, Brock is okay. In fact, at the time it simply made me laugh, albeit completely over the top and disrespectful to the sport and nature of mma. As far as Carwin is concerned, he has quite an impressive record. 11 and 0, with no fight making it past mid way in the first round. There is no telling how his cardio is on that basis. If you look a bit deeper into the record, aside from Gonzaga who the hell are these guys. His size is impressive and has a comparable physique to Brock, I'm just not sold on the fact that he is the one who will take Brock down. Anything can happen, any one can land a punch in this one. Should be exciting. In the end and just to make a call, I think Brock gets this one in the second round.

Holy shit LOL Ranch Dressing! Also LOL "They need something to do with their lives" Thanks for clearing up what Div II is Brock

The important thing to glean from this interview and the new thing at least I learned....6 figs for a training camp? Someone smarter, how usual/unusual is that? Say what you want but it sounds like the champ is dedicated to keeping that belt like no other. Thank you for blessing us with an interview King Brock!

A groan of tedium escapes me...

Carwins wrestling doesn't have to be from Div I to negate Lesnars. If it was going to be a straight out wrestling match then I guess I'd favor Lesnar, but this is a fight and wrestling is only a part of it. Simple as this, Carwin is going to be his toughest opponent yet and he has all the skills, strength and brains to beat Lesnar. I hope he does.

Your third sentence hit the nail on the head. It's fascinating to see what kind of blather is going to come out of his mouth.

Carwin, Round One. T/KO with Brock in wrestler hell (on his back after getting dropped with a big shot...my guess a hook from the push out of the clinch).

I know I could be wrong. I know a big part of me making this call publicly and to anyone who will listen is that this is how I WANT it to go. It could just as easily 9perhpas even MORE easily) end with Brock bowling Shane over and GnP him into the mat for a few minutes.

All I know is that I enjoy watching energetic, athletic heavyweights immensely. I don't know why it's so much fun, when the action at the lighter classes tends to be better...maybe just something about all that power...the same reason watching a great white or a big tiger shark take on big prey is going to keep me watching discovery channel longer than watching a white tip take on a fish.

Another good couple months for MMA. This fight and Machida-Rua are two that I am having trouble waiting for.

And this....so true. The Heel was always fun to watch, always sold tickets, and still is/does. I know he's going to say something that makes me mad, or makes me laugh. The first time he says "I'd like to thank my opponent for a good fight, he's a tough guy, and thank you to the crowd and the UFC for the support." I'll find him a lot less interesting. I'll like him more, but he won't be quite the same to me. I really look forward to seeing how he handles his next loss. Gracious? Excuses? I think it will be quite telling.

I can tell you. He's going to be really really angry seconds after the fight and probably won't talk at all. Once he's calm again he's going to congratulate his opponent during the post fight press conference. And boy, do I pity the guy that faces Lesnar after his next loss.
