Heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar will be defending his title against Cain Velasquez on Saturday at UFC 121, so it’s understandable why his mind is a little bit occupied.
Lesnar appeared as an in-studio guest on ESPN’s Rome is Burning on Thursday. Romey asked him to respond to this rant former middleweight top contender and reigning Octagon black sheep Chael Sonnen unleashed last month:
“If Brock Lesnar was here right now, I’d take my boot off and throw it at him and he’d better polish it up before he brings it back to me.
That guy comes around here talking about he’s the baddest guy in the UFC? Hey Brock, quit eating so many raw eggs and doing push-ups cause it’s affecting your realm on reality.
Are you kidding me? I’d slap you in your face and you wouldn’t do anything about it, Brock. ‘But I’m Brock Lesnar, I’ve got this five-dollar haircut and a knife tattooed on my chest.’
Well, I’d shove it up through your face if you get in Chael Sonnen’s way.”
“I don’t know who he is,” Lesnar told the popular sports personality.
When Rome played a video of Sonnen’s Q&A session and asked the champ if he recognized the guy on the screen, Lesnar was still unsure who he was looking at.
“Is he a fighter?” Lesnar coyly replied. “I don’t know who he is, I’m serious.”
Clearly, the former “wannabe” Minnesota Viking has more important fish to fry, as he’ll be looking to take care of Velasquez’s unblemished 8-0 resume this Saturday inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
