Brock Lesnar answered a ton of questions Saturday night regarding his status as the planet’s best heavyweight with his 2ndRound rally over Shane Carwin. Although, one inquiry he wasn’t in a hurry to field was when he expected to defend his newly minted undisputed crown.
“We need to talk about that,” Lesnar stated at the post-fight press conference of top contender Cain Velasquez. “I’m going home tonight. I’m going to visit some family when I get home. I’m a farmer now, and I’m doing what I love to do. I’ve got some combining to do this fall, and I want to shoot a white-tailed deer and spend time with my family.”
Well, alrighty then.
Hey UFC president Dana White, when is Lesnar vs. Velasquez going down?
“I need to talk to Brock about it,” White said. “I’m a big believer in, ‘Let’s get these guys right back in there as soon as we can.’ Farming sounds fun, but that’s not what really pays the bills.”
Well you’re sitting two feet from each other, how about conversing right now? It’s basically the only question that’s on everyone’s mind anyway. That and when are you going to sign Fedor Emelianenko so we can finally determine who the world’s top 265-pounder truly is.
Lesnar made his statement at UFC 116 with his impressive arm-triangle submission victory en route to handing Carwin his first professional blemish. Oddly, the application Fedor submitted last week at “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum” has auspiciously been misplaced … very upsetting.
After unleashing a performance like the one Lesnar did inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, a vacation is most definitely deserved. However, just not an extended one considering he hadn’t set foot inside an Octagon for 12 months prior to colliding with Carwin.
Talking is a good thing. It’s the preferred method when confrontation presents itself in real life. However, this is the fight business where the term ‘Talk is Cheap” resides in the forefront of every athlete’s head.
Furthermore, all talk and no play makes for a not-as-exciting heavyweight day.
