Brock Lesnar: I'm The Real UFC Heavyweight Champion

0

Brock Lesnar was on ESPN today talking about this weekend's interim heavyweight title bout between Shane Carwin and Frank Mir:

“That was a business decision that the UFC had to make,” Lesnar said. “Really, that belt is a make-believe belt to satisfy the company and to satisfy the people in the heavyweight division. I'm still the heavyweight champion.”
“What's said outside of the Octagon is all purely entertainment,” Lesnar said. “I dislike Frank — there isn't an opponent in the Octagon that I really truly like. That's the battle of competition. I'm not a grudge-holder, but the first and foremost thing to me is, When I get in that Octagon I respect no one. And that's the bottom line for me.”

“If Shane Carwin is a better version of Brock Lesnar, then the fight's over in the first 30 seconds — I feel bad for Frank,” Lesnar said. “Frank has a history of putting his foot in his mouth and let's just see what happens Saturday night. I'm anxious to fight either one of those opponents. Both of them I've got some history with. … I can sit back and watch and let these guys fight over who wants to come after Brock Lesnar, the UFC heavyweight champion.”
