Good watch I thought. Dana was strangely chilled. Lots spoken about.

I knew he would jump on it the moment Randy broke the Brock news earlier.

He said that they'll be holding a Press Conference on either Tuesday or Wednesday, with Brock there to give us the big update. Didn't say whether it'd be good or bad news though, just that he 'hoped' that Brock will fight again. Really looking forward to seeing that press conference, hope we get some good news!

I don't think they can have it reading by April.

Good find, repped.

11 minute interview and no profanity from Dana. That has GOT to be a record.

Very nice Dana.

I think Flash Entertainment who has ties to the Abu Dhabi government has had their say about Dana's use of profanity. Really they can't have themselves associated with some of the controversial things that Dana has on occassion blurted out so I think they probably asked him to up his professionalism.

So I wasn't the only one who caught that. He seemed to be really cool and collected, and the interviewer also did a good job not trying to get him fired up.

Very good interview.
I'm interested to finally find out what the future of Brock Lesnar's fighting career will look like. I'm also pretty excited for BJ/Edgar I think that Edgar might surprise us. Even if he does come up short in the end (no pun intended).
