Brock Lesnar Says He’s More Than Qualified As TUF Coach

Matt Boone


The following are USA Today interview highlights with former WWE Superstar and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar:

Lesnar on being qualified to be a coach on UFC’s “The Ultimate Fighter”: “I’ve been a UFC heavyweight champion. What more qualifications do you need to be a coach?”

Lesnar on training welterweight fighters (as a heavyweight) on the show: “I was a 170-pounder at one time. I don’t move like I move because I was always a big guy. From my freshman year (through) my first couple of years in college, I was a 220-pound guy. I grew 3 inches taller and finally hit puberty, I guess. … I’m not going to get in there and be able to pound with these guys, (but) I don’t even know what coaches have done that”

Lesnar on his altercation with The Undertaker at a past UFC event: “The other fellows that wanted to come — like Stone Cold and The Rock, or Goldberg — those guys have all said, ‘I’m coming to watch you. Good luck.’ This guy shows up every time that I seem to lose, so he’s like my black cloud. We’ve got some history. I’ve worked with him, but I don’t really care for him.”
