wow nice find. good to see he's in fairly decent shape still ... doesn't look like he's traded too much muscle mass for fat, maybe just a hair.

EDIT: nm, I think Coosh might be right ... it's fake. It did seem really unrealistic, it's quite unheard of to look this fit after a long sickness.

Ok yeah you are right there is the one scene where Lesnar jumps over the guy(2:36 in 1st movie, 0:08 in 2nd one). And the setting is all the same so it probably is an old movie.

This is a good thing for us MMA fans. I hope he's in perfect shape before he gets back to Octagon.

Maybe its time for Lashley to come to UFC.

I'm not sure Lesnar was ever sick. Did anyone hear the conference call last week? One reporter, who drew the short straw, asked Brock how exactly he got the 'miracle' cure Dana talked about. Brock pretty much dodged the question bar saying 'I ate right'. Eating right cured your diverticulosis? He had perforation and a large absess. If the cure is legit then it really is a miracle.

Why would you question whether he was sick? You think the due willingly postponed his career and lost a chance at another huge paycheck aswell as nearly being stripped of his title just so he could play hookey? Thats just plain silly especially since he said the way he was able to overcome the illness was by not only changing his diet but getting himself to a much more accomplished hospital which was able to avoid the surgery.

Brock is a genetic freak and im sure thats part of how he was able to overcome the illness without surgery. I cannot stand the guy but there is no reason to doubt he was ill. Weve seen the pictures of him at signings where he looked like he was far from his normal neck vain throbbing self.

It's along the same lines as if Rampage's 'leaving' the UFC was a stunt or not to generate more PPV sales. Drama = sales, look at Kimbo for God's sake. It's just a theory. And how much did he really miss anyway? One fight? If Dana was involved he probably got money. Just a theory is all.

Once again why would you think it was a stunt? Rampage fully intended to leave because his ego was so bruised then realised that his ego was taking and even bigger beating when everyone called him a wuss for doing so. All the hype and build up was allready there. All his leaving did was detract from the excitement that the UFC had poured money into building up.

Rampage cost the UFC more than you realise. The amount of money that goes ino marketing a fight for so long and building an entire season of a tv show around said fight is unbelievable and to have the main event pulled from the card in one of the main fighters hometowns caused a huge drop in buys as we saw.

I seriously doubt it was a publicity stunt. It would make zero sense for Dana to have Rampage say he was leaving. Dana is smart as hell and would know better than this. The dude is a prick but he knows how to build hype and telling someone to pretend to leave isn't the way. Ontop of everything they have to completely remarket the fight and everything costing them even more money and man power which could have been put towards another huge fight.

In all honesty I hate Lesner with a passion, but that's just silly dude. Of course he was genuinely sick, why would he risk his enitre career, as well as loose his title just to take a break...

No one in their right mind would do it, and regardless of his douchiness most of the time, he is still in his right mind.
