Paul Heyman has posted another blog exclusively over at his new Heyman Hustle @ CraveOnline.com. This time around Heyman discusses Brock Lesnar’s title fight against Frank Mir at this past Saturday night’s UFC 100 PPV. The following are some highlights:
"We want them to engage in what can be near-mortal combat, and to either curl up their hands, and swing at a human being’s head with malicious force in the desire to knock the other competitor into unconsciousness; or to physically manipulate the opponent’s body in such a degree that either pain or fear of permanent injury causes a paid athlete to "tap out," aka "to quit," aka "to forfeit the right to continue competing in this particular contest."
And then we want them to shake hands, be nice, and say all the politically correct things like "I respect my opponent," and "it was a privilege to fight an athlete of his caliber."
"Brock Lesnar is a professional fighter, and he is quite comfortable accepting the risks associated with his choice of vocation. He’s even more comfortable protecting himself from those risks, and doing damage to the opponent before the opponent does damage to him. As a matter of fact, Brock enjoys doing damage. He likes to hurt living creatures."
"Brock Lesnar is not Mike Tyson. He’s not out at night, looking for trouble, trying to quench an insatiable need for the adrenal rush of being "on the brink" at all times.
