Brock Lesnar Interview

Brock Lesnar

If you’ve followed Brock Lesnar, then you remember him from the WWE.  Lesnar, now a member of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, lost to Frank Mir in his UFC debut.  He is set to hook up with Heath Herring and try to get his first UFC win under his belt.  Scoop Malinowski of MMA Memories landed an interview with Lesnar; he talked about his training, his next opponent, why he made the switch from pro wrestling to MMA and much more.  Below are some excerpts: Heading into your UFC fight against Frank Mir last February, there was a lot of anticipation by fans in regards to how you would do in your MMA debut. Even though you lost the fight, were you happy with your performance?

Brock Lesnar: “When you lose a fight, it is difficult to be happy with your performance. There were some things I did right and some things I did wrong. I felt like I rushed the fight a little bit from the start. I made a mistake and put myself in a dangerous position, and Frank was able to capitalize on it. Still, I was happy that at least the fight was exciting and I think the fans enjoyed it.” In hindsight, is there anything that you would have done differently in training and preparation for facing Mir now that you know what you do?

Brock Lesnar: “No. I had a great training camp and we did all the right things. Looking back, there really isn’t anything I would have done differently prior to the fight.” Would you be interested in having a re-match with Mir? Do you think fans would be interested in seeing it booked?

Brock Lesnar: “I would certainly be interested in a rematch. I hope I get that opportunity down the road. I think the fans thought it was an exciting fight and it was not without controversy, so I think people would really like to see what would happen if we did it again.”
