Former WWE Phenom, Brock Lesnar, Retains His Title at UFC 100
Apparently Brock went full heel mode after his victory against Frank Mir last night:
In the post-fight interview, Lesnar encouraged the booing fans to “keep going” before continuing to taunt Mir.
No one and nothing was spared. Lesnar even turned his attention to the UFC itself, which paid him an estimated $3 million for the fight, pointing at the giant Bud Light advertisement in the middle of the octagon.
“I’m drinking a cooler full of Coors Light, Coors Light because Bud Light won’t pay me anything.”
Anything for the children at home, big guy?
“Hell, I might even get on top of my wife tonight.”
With his clown-show antics, Brock Lesnar just became the greatest villain in modern fighting. From refusing to tap gloves prefight in a sportsmanlike ritual to this over-the-top rant that came right out of the silly wrestling circus. (via Yahoo)
The article would go on and say that Dana White was downright pissed at Brock’s antics, but I say it’s great for the business. Sure it might turn some people off, but who cares! Get the crowd to completely hate the guy and those very same people will constantly pay to see Lesnar’s next match in order to see him get what’s coming to him.
Dana White is worried about the legitamacy of the sport, and I think that with Brock at the helm, White has a great opportunity for the UFC to go supernova and pull in the mainstream audience.
