lol

A very strange exchange involving former World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar and his former WWE colleague The Undertaker occured immediately after the fight between Lesnar and Cain Velasquez. The Undertaker, who is a long-time MMA fan, was being interviewed by Ariel Helwani at ringside about his thoughts on the fight. As the two were talking Brock Lesnar walked past and the two of them stared at each other, with The Undertaker shouting at him “You wanna do it?”.

When pressed afterwards by Ariel Helwani about whether the two were “cool” The Undertaker responded that it was “personal” and then went on to say that Lesnar needs to train harder and refused to say that he had rooted for his former colleague against Velasquez. The full exchange is contained in the video below:

I wouldn't be surprised if Vince McMahon had a hand in that.

or he literally had rigor mortis because he gassed out kicking Lesnar's ass for a full round, which was allowed to go on for too long and should've been stopped.

even a casual fight fan can understand the reality of that.


All I need to understand is that your a butt hurt fan that cant get over the ass kicking that Lesnar gave your fav fighter.

You know how when you were a kid, you'd get two wasps in a jar, shake it up and watch them fight?

That works with MMA fans too :sosp:

(not yet to the level it does with NASCAR fans, mind you, but it's getting there)


I just love it. I have been watching UFC since I was 12 and it has exploded. I dont have favorites and I just enjoy the sport for what it is. Kinda like Nascar LOL.

Seems like WWF needs some attention or something. Im sure that was staged.

Oh Im sure of it. I mean what are the chances of crap like that going down without him involved.

It's obvious he doesn't like/can't take getting punched in the face so he might be better off with the "other" stuff.

LOL I cant think of too many people who do. MMA is more about making sure you dont get punched in the face then taking it. Taking it is more of a Boxing thing.

There are only a few guys like that now, but it is growing with all the wrestlers. A lot of them grew up with rough backgrounds and fighting was a way of life, then someone started paying them to do it. Liddell grew up as an enforcer when he was like 15.

Besides, no matter how good you are you are going to get hit in the face and if you can't take a punch in the face you are in the wrong sport. Most guys probably don't like it and some guys do (Leben & Miller come to mind) but all of them seem to accept it and can deal with it, not Brock.

Add Guida, Fujita and Aleksander Emelianenko to that list.

Aleksander Emelianenko has some crazy good hands. I havent heard anything about him in a good while. I think he may have a form of hepatitis that prevents him from getting medical clearance.

All Im saying is look at some out the guys at the top of there games right now and none of them are the back room brawlers. Silva, GSP, Velasquez, Rua,Machida, and Edgar all dont just sit back a take a punch. These guys exploit your weakness and use it ageist you.

Brock never got the fact that you have to use strategy ageist your opponent. He rushes you, punches you, and puts you on the mat. The dude is a wrestler for sure. The reason why Cain won was the fact that he stopped Brock on the ground and forced him to stand up. Everyone including Lesnar knows he is not a great striker. I was just surprised at how well Cain managed such a large man from his back side. Now that's technique.

That fact is not that the man cant take a punch. If anything Brock has taken more punches then most. The fact is he is very poor at boxing and Cain is as complete as it gets in the Heavyweights. The uppercut he gave Lesnar was sick. I mean right on the jaw and then he just picked him apart on the ground. Dude can do everything. He is GSP at 240.

He was apart of the Russian mob right? He goes back to the days of Pride if I remember.

I think Machida is another guy that can't handle getting punched in the face but we'll see after he fights Rampage. Show me one other fighter that literally turns and runs away when they get hit.

Silva will stand and bang with you because he's the superior striker but lately he enjoys embarrassing opponents instead of beating them down.

Cain stood and threw in a flurry with Brock, he wasn't scared to get hit and he got tagged with a knee and didn't turn and run.

Obviously guys don't want to get their face smashed but sometimes they know they have to get hit in the face to land something of their own and they do. None of those guys would be champions if they got hit in the face and ran away. That's all I'm saying.
