Brock Lesnar’s advocate, Paul Heyman, talks DC and stays in character

brock-advocate-paul-heyman-stays-character

Most WWE superstars are able to stay in character before, during, and outside of a WWE show. Managers and refs are no exception, either. In the case of Brock Lesnar’s ‘advocate’, Paul Heyman, when talking Daniel Cormier to reporters he stays totally in character as Lesnar’s heel manager.

“As long as Daniel Cormier has the balls to step into the Octagon and put his title up against Brock Lesnar; and if the UFC comes up with the money for Brock Lesnar, I don’t see anything that would keep Brock Lesnar from taking the fight.”

Heyman is always on point when it comes to his promos and in this case it’s no different. While his statement is partially in jest, there is a lot of truth to it. It’s going to take a lot of money for Brock to accept an ass kicking a fight against Daniel Cormier.

10 years ago, today, Brock Lesnar became UFC heavyweight champ

years-Brock-Lesnar-became-heavyweight-champ

It’s crazy to think that Brock Lesnar became the UFC heavyweight champion exactly 10 years ago, today. Even crazier is that he took the belt from MMA legend, Randy Couture. I remember vividly where I was, who I was with, and what I was thinking when the two squared off.

I was sitting with former UFC fighter, Gabe Ruediger, in his living room and both of us were sure that Brock had no chance of winning. He certainly didn’t deserve the title shot, as he was 1-1 in the UFC and 2-1 in his MMA career.

Shows how much we knew. Lesnar dropped Randy in the second round with a clubbing punch and then followed up with about 50 hammerfists. I didn’t realize it at the time, but Mario ‘Get em Killed’ Yamasaki was reffing and he does what he does best. He let the fight go about 10 hammerfists too long.

Regardless, Lesnar defied all expectations and walked away as the new UFC heavyweight champion. He would go on to defend the title twice before dropping it to Cain Velasquez almost 2 years later.

DC staying true to his word. When he’s done, he is DONE

dc-staying-true-word-done

Everyone is trying to chance Daniel Cormier’s mind about retiring at 40 years old. Why shouldn’t they? At 39 years of age, DC is more popular, fighting his best, and richer than he’s ever been. However, he said he was done when he turns 40 and it looks like he’s staying true to those words.

“Any number, when you start talking about millions, is a lot of money. The reality is, I’ve made up my mind and come to peace with it. I truly do believe that what I have in my career outside of fighting is going to allow me opportunities that… I’m going to see numbers that I’ve never really seen in fighting.”

Roughly translated:

‘Sure, I’m at the peak of my athletic career but I don’t want to hang around too long. Daddy needs to have all of his faculties when he goes Hollywood.’

DC is getting out when he wants to and it sounds like he has some money making camera time waiting for him once he hangs up the gloves.

DC on Brock, Jones, and Derrick Lewis. DC honest and open as always

brock-jones-derrick-lewis-honest-open-always

Daniel Cormier is one of the more honest and forthcoming fighters in the UFC. TMZ caught up with him and he was on point as usual. He spoke about Brock Lesnar, Jon Jones, and Derrick Lewis. Being that Lewis is his dance partner this weekend, his thoughts on Lewis are the most telling.

“To me, Derrick Lewis is more impressive because of his ability to fight. This is a young man that was in jail for a long time in prison and society gave up on him. He kept fighting and turned himself into a millionaire. Those are the things that matter. That type of self-belief is most worrisome.”

DC takes on Lewis this weekend for Cormier’s UFC heavyweight title. It remains to be seen what happens with the light heavyweight championship.

DC noticed Brock was smaller at Summerslam. USADA will do that to ya.

When Brock Lesnar first walked out from behind the curtain last night at SummerSlam, I immediately thought that he looked much smaller than usual. Granted, he is still gigantic. However, it’s just not the same size that we’re used to seeing. We all know that Brock Lesnar is coming back to the UFC and that … Read moreDC noticed Brock was smaller at Summerslam.

WWE’s Roman Reigns addresses Brock Lesnar, the UFC, and Dana’s ass

roman-reigns-addresses-brock-lesnar-ass

Roman Reigns is one of the biggest stars in the WWE. However, his mic skills, while improving, still leave something to be desired. Last night on Monday Night RAW Reigns got on the mic and promoted his match with Brock Lesnar at Summerslam. For some reason, he brought Dana White’s ass into the equation.

“I’m gonna send Brock Lesnar so far back into the UFC that he’s gonna find his head stuck in Dana White’s ass!”

The UFC boss saw the segment and couldn’t help but chuckle.

While all that is funny, this MMA fan had the best comment by a mile. This guy wins the internet.

The USADA database shows Brock Lesnar has been tested three times in a month! When it comes to Brock Lesnar, USADA means business.

Brock Lesnar returns to WWE. Has 1 foot out the door, on his way to UFC

brock-lesnar-returns-wwe-foot-door

Right now in the WWE, Brock Lesnar’s angle is that he has one foot out of the proverbial door. This is art imitating life, as Lesnar has entered the USADA testing pool and is preparing for a showdown with Daniel Cormier in the UFC. Last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW told the story of Lesnar and how he doesn’t care about the WWE and will be making a move to the UFC.

His rival, Roman Reigns, even went so far as to mention Brock feuding with UFC champ champ, Daniel Cormier. Lesnar is totally transitioning to the UFC while on live WWE television and the WWE seem to be behind this angle, 100%.

The WWE are pushing the fact that Brock is on his way out and it is going over huge with WWE fans. At the moment, fans hate Lesnar because he never shows up to televised events and now, he’s leaving again. This storyline hit a home run in the ratings, as fans are totally intrigued by Lesnar’s ‘Who gives a shit?’ attitude.

Usually, Ronda Rousey has the most views when she’s on WWE tv, but Lesnar’s in-ring appearance shattered Ronda’s usually big numbers. Ronda’s segment from last night has close to 700k views on YouTube, while Brock’s appearance is over 4 million.

Lesnar and Rousey are the two biggest stars in both the WWE and the UFC. It’s crazy how it all worked out this way, but this is where we are now.

DC insists that Brock Lesnar is his last fight, but not his next one.

insists-brock-lesnar-fight

Daniel Cormier insists that Brock Lesnar will be the last fight of his career. However, he will not be the next fight. In a perfect world; USADA doesn’t suck, injuries do not happen, and UFC fans get whatever scheduled fights are promised to them. The reality is that those things aren’t reality.

A lot can happen between now and Daniel Cormier’s impending retirement. He still has a broken hand to recover from, the UFC needs to find him a huge fight, and he has to go through two training camps without getting injured. In this day and age, that is a tall order.

Being the double champ, one would think that he will defend his light heavyweight title first. DC claims that Lesnar is last, so it only makes sense that he doesn’t hold the 205 belt hostage.

Since we know who is last, the question now is,

“Who is next on the docket for Daniel Cormier?”

DC on ESPN red carpet, talking to WWE, about Brock Lesnar.

espn-red-carpet-brock-lesnar

The Daniel Cormier/Brock Lesnar story has gained momentum and it’s been rather quickly. Since Brock entered the UFC Octagon and shoved Daniel Cormier after his KO victory over Stipe Miocic at UFC 226, the story has practically been writing itself. The WWE stopped DC on the ESPYS red carpet to get his thoughts on the Brock situation. In the usual DC fashion, he kept the story going.

The showdown between the two is looking like it will be the last fight of DC’s career. So, while he’s still in the sport, Cormier will attempt to generate the most money possible for the superfight against Lesnar.

Even when DC isn’t working, he’s still out there hustling. The sport desperately needs that right now.

DC’s boxing coach who shoved Lesnar, Rosendo Sanchez, speaks

coach-shoved-lesnar-rosendo-sanchez

If you watch the Brock Lesnar/Daniel Cormier post-fight fracas, you can see that there was one person who was not in on the joke. DC’s boxing trainer, Rosendo Sanchez, backed DC up after Cormier was shoved by Lesnar. Sanchez was filming the moment and was all smiles up to the point where everything jumped off.

Sanchez actually shoved Lesnar after Lesnar pushed Cormier. Everyone in the cage was laughing and smiling because they were all keen on what was really going on. However, they forgot to give Sanchez the memo. Brock goes about 6’5 and around 300 pounds. Sanchez, let’s just say he’s a lot smaller. I’m not even sure Brock knew he was there.

Sanchez insists that DC is going to smash Brock when they meet in the cage. I don’t disagree with him.
