Brock Lesnar believes he has “room for improvement”
Speaking exclusively to Fighters Only magazine, UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar comments on his will to improve despite having beaten two former title holders in his ascension to title status.
With only four mixed martial arts bouts under his belt Lesnar has arguably become one of the most successful crossover athletes in modern Mixed Martial Arts. In the five-page feature he comments on his current status:
“I’m keeping everything in perspective and keeping it real. Even though I’ve got the belt I can still become a better fighter…I’m trying to evolve as a fighter every day…I think I have room for improvement, once you think you don’t the walls to the room come tumbling down.”
Some fans have been critical of the opportunities afforded Lesnar with such a short tenure in the sport but he is accepting of this commenting:
“I can understand some fans’ opinions, but I’ve been proving myself my whole life…You don’t just gain respect overnight, you’ve got to work for it.”
