Not even Greg Jackson can stop Lesnar when Lesnar is at the top of his game physically and mentally.
Have you guys ever heard of the respect Couture has for Lesnar? Couture has stated in interviews that Lesnar is just getting better and better with every fight and I remember reading weeks ago about Couture comparing Lesnar to Fedor when talking about preparation and mindset.
Well put. As said on the other topic about this interview I really used to like Carwin, but for a guy that is supposed to be pretty smart (based on his education) he talks so much bs and comes up with excuses all the time. He talks about respect while showing none of it himself. He talks about being a real fighter unlike Brock while having much weaker resume to show of his work.
On top of that trashtalk you got Carwin's mom/trainers protecting him from mean comments and adding their "2 cents" to every discussion with dumb hype up comments about how Carwin is doing this and that to Brock. I don't mind pre-fight hype up and I understand its easier to stay motivated for a fight during long camps like that. For ****s sake though we have seen so many embarresing losses to guys that have talked **** about their opponents pre-fight (Herring, Penn, Franklin and Bisping being good examples) so rest of the guys should know by now how silly they'll look if they actually fail to deliver. Carwin will prolly follow Forrest's example and hide for few months when this fight is done, because clearly Brock has already beaten him mentally.
