I loved what Brock did after the 100 fight. That was one of the most sincere and raw emotional moments I've ever seen in the cage. We have to remind ourselves of the context. Mir had been trashing Brocks skills continuously for 2 months before the fight and Brock said nothing at all in return. Ok, he broke a door... but stayed silent. After the fight, all that emotion came flooding out. It wasnt scripted. He wasnt playing the WWE baddie. Thats how he felt. It was fabulous. That was the day I became a Brock fan.
Not everybody hated him for what happened that day.
like this post, people i swear just hate lesnar just to hate him, i cant be because of his short wwe stint because Ken Shamrock used to be the most gimicky wwf fighter ever and he was in MMA before he was he was in the WWF, i cant be because of the UFC 100 outburst because mir was a dfick the whole time and lesnar was letting out some raw emotion as said above and it was fan effing tastic. and yes i love the lesnar
I personally agree heavily with the both of you on UFC 100, that Mir had it coming and that whole confrontation had more to do with Mir running his mouth for the previous year leading up to the fight, then Brock being some inherent asshole acting out. I liked Brock then in his height, I like Brock now, in a post Cain era where Brock's suddenly a middle/lower tier joke or something. However, "MOST" people weren't MMA-behind-the-scenes savvy enough to see that UFC 100 was a reaction of pent up aggression from Brock, not an initiation of random aggression toward some unassuming fighter (Mir). I can't tell you how many times I've tried to defend that whole scenario.
That being said, a lot of people saw his whole UFC 100 stint as too WWE and therefore, lost respect for Brock as an MMA'ist. It's been his long process of showing he's a humble guy who just wants to be left alone from the drama and just train that has won him the most respect. To each their own, ultimately, but a relaxed, focused, non-dramatic Brock, will be better for him, as it was for Kimbo Slice.
