Brock Lesnar Is Amused by This Silly “Make-Believe” Belt That Carwin and Mir Want So Much

(He’s not here to make friends, people.)

Following up on appearances by Georges St. Pierre and Frank Mir, SportsCenter also spoke with UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar to get his thoughts on the Carwin-Mir interim title fight at UFC 111 this weekend. passes along some quotes from his appearance and, I know this is going to sound weird, but he was actually kind of a jerk about a few things.

On Saturday night’s fight:
"That was a business decision that the UFC had to make. Really, that belt is a make-believe belt to satisfy the company and to satisfy the people in the heavyweight division. I’m still the heavyweight champion."

On Mir’s pseudo-death threat:
"What’s said outside of the Octagon is all purely entertainment. I dislike Frank — there isn’t an opponent in the Octagon that I really truly like. That’s the battle of competition. I’m not a grudge-holder, but the first and foremost thing to me is, when I get in that Octagon I respect no one. And that’s the bottom line for me."

On Mir’s evaluation of Carwin as a better version of Lesnar:

"If Shane Carwin is a better version of Brock Lesnar, then the fight’s over in the first 30 seconds — I feel bad for Frank. Frank has a history of putting his foot in his mouth and let’s just see what happens Saturday night. I’m anxious to fight either one of those opponents. Both of them I’ve got some history with. … I can sit back and watch and let these guys fight over who wants to come after Brock Lesnar, the UFC heavyweight champion."

Oh, good. For a second I was worried that he might get all the way through his ESPN appearance without referring to himself in the third person. It really sucks when that happens. No matter how many times you remind yourself to talk about yourself as if you are a completely separate entity, somehow it slips your mind and only later when you’re soaking in the tub, enjoying a warm glass of whole milk and listening to the soothing sounds of Miles Davis do you realize that you completely forgot. Then you really feel like a jackass.

    "a history of putting his foot in his mouth" Really Brock?

    I like this "That was a business decision that the UFC had to make. Really, that belt is a make-believe belt to satisfy the company and to satisfy the people in the heavyweight division." How about your title shot to begin with was a business decision? Try that.

    Brock Lesnar is a big old slab of asshole. "...I'm still the heavyweight champion." And damn lucky you are too my anally compacted friend, other champions realised early on that eating their greens was an all round good thing and took care of that, *ahem*, shit.

    Every time I hear Brock Lesnar speak and then the ensuing reactions, it always makes me glad that I've been on the interwebs long enough to know that you shouldn't feed trolls.
  7. rlh61 Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:05

    Agreed...excellent commentary. The post-near-death-experience-Brock is a much kinder, gentler version of the original viking-bastard.
  8. Goog Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:14

    You can love him or hate him, but I didn't read anything there that was untrue. Why not just make an interim-interim belt that Junior Dos Santos can hold while he's waiting to fight the real interim champ?
  9. speedoguy Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:22

    lets be honest, the interim belt is really just a made up belt, brocks the champ, and until someone takes his belt, he's the champ
  10. dogpt3 Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:24

    @ Goog Yeah serious man, everyone is so anti Brock but at the end of the day until someone beats his ass hes still the man with the belt. The scary thing is he continuously gets better every fight. I agree the guy is not the most political when he speaks (understatement of the year), But seriously, everyone needs to get off the anti brock bandwagon and respect his dominance.

    Brock was actually refreshingly honest and accurate in this. It's amazing how much it affects my perception when a person sets their own bar so low for acting like an asshole. I thought he was pretty angelic in this interview. Makes me want to do really crappy work today so I look like a badass next week.
  13. BeastUnleashed Says:

  15. Dr. Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:37

    Well he was truthful is saying that when he gets in the Octagon, he respects no one - fans, sponsors, fighters, the UFC, etc. He was still a dick but not as big as he could have been. I wasn't annoyed by his answers, surprisingly.
  16. knucklesamitch Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:38

    I'm torn...On the one hand I would live to see Lesnar and Carwin go at it...That fight would be AWESOME. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind seeing Mir get his ass whipped again then driving thru Vegas on a Rampage like...well, like Rampage.
  17. fACE7biter Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:40

    I don't understand why they didn't just cancel the interim title altogether since they received confirmation that Brock will be able to fight again. Just make Mir/Carwin a #1 contender fight. And how are JDS and Velasquez supposed to keep busy outside of fighting each other? The heavyweight scene is a mess. In other news, I just met Brendan Schaub at GameStop in NY, and he's a cool guy. With a hot girlfriend. But he stunk at the UFC 2010 demo.
  18. MidwestFightFan Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:43

    What's Lesnars history with Carwin? That he failed to post for there last fight?
  19. dogpt3 Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:44

    @FACE7biter Well if he sucks at the UFC video game then obviously he sucks at life and REAL MMA.
  20. ChachiGT Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:47

    I still don't understand why his personality matters at all. Whether he is an ass or saint, doesn't matter inside the octogan. Does he get the job done, yes. This "Brock sucks" bandwagon is a bunch of poo. He's the champ, deal with it.
  21. Ring_Rust619 Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 11:49

    I think we need to just cut the bullshit and have a good ol' fashoned Vale Tudo style heavy wieght tounriment. Get Lesnar, Carwin, Mir, Dos Santos, Valasquez, and Nogueira. And just figure it out in one day.
  22. ctownhood Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 12:03

    Why does everyone say "Lesnar didn't deserve a title shot"? He's defended his belt successfully, so that means he did. If someone has the belt that doesn't "deserve" it, that means that any opponent should be able to take it from him. And so dice.
  23. C.B. Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 12:34

    He's a terrible champion and a terrible person. The interm belt wouldn't be necessary if he had been able to fight for the past how many months and it exists for exactly that reason, you have to actively defend your title. Going with a Heavyweight interm belt vs. yanking it from Brock was also a business decision. If a heavyweight without Brocks PPV draw would have been out that long you're damn right Dana would have yanked it.
  24. El Guapo Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 12:37

    If Carwin really is a better version of Brock Lesnar, Frank's a dead man walking. Imagine how much shit he's gonna talk if Carwin beats his ass? Sheeeeesh

  26. Unabomberman Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 12:49

    @ctownhood Hm? Who cares if he "deserved the belt"? I rather care for how many times has he "defended that belt"? Let's see: he beat a poor korean punching bag, got it from Frank Mir, beat Herring, beat Couture, gave it back to Mir... sick. Dude doesn't fight a whole lot. He may deserve to keep that one belt, but it hardly means that much if you are not defending it, or if you defend it, what, once a year? All I'm saying is that his relevance in the sport suffers due to him not defending that one belt, even if it is out of his control. So far Brock is like the Tito of old: he sells fights; but when he's on, it's hardly exciting.

    @ Face7biter-"I don't understand why they didn't just cancel the interim title altogether since they received confirmation that Brock will be able to fight again." I used to wonder the same damn thing everytime I seen an interim match but I think the reasons for it are: 1. They can make it a 5 rnd fight if it's for a belt. 2. The UFC can now sell the PPV as 2 championship fights on 1 card. IMO, interim belts suck b/c it's retarded to have 2 champs in the same division but it all works itself out in the end.

    I thought those answers where pretty good. Almost reasonable like a Canadian.
  35. LET IT RAIN Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 02:03

    He's correct and really good at building hype. The WWE teaches advanced classes in smack talk. DW would probably be stoked if more UFC fighters took notes. Reminds me of Kanye and his shouting when he first came out how he was the best. Love it or hate it, several peeps still can't wait to see what happens next.
  36. rlh61 Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 02:06

    And just as reasonable as the Canadian healthcare system...hence Brock's ability to provide reasonable answers. It all fits together in a nice little package.
  37. cecils_pupils Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 02:12

    ^^^ little package?... did someone just call out Brandon Vera?
  38. RwilsonR Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 02:14

    Brock is an asshole, for sure, but he wasn't being too much of an asshole in this interview. What is he supposed to say? Is he supposed to say: "Well, I think the winner of Mir/Carwin is going to be the real champion. I am just a paper champion. And Frank Mir is a good man for wishing to cause my death in the cage. As for Carwin, he really does do everything better than me - it's hard to argue with that."

He is a godamn freak of nature, with tremendous athletic ability and power. All you guys whining about how much you hate him and want him to die are fucking jokes. If you put half the amount of hard work into your lives that he puts into his you might actually be able to afford a ticket to a live event and not have to watch it online for free bitching about how much you hate people.

    No matter how good Brock may be, no matter how many challengers her may beat, he's still a twat. I wouldn't say it to his face, but that doesn't make it any less true. I like Mir and Carwin, and I'm not a religious man, but I pray that the winner beats Brock. The man is just unlikeable. He's big, he's good at what he does, but I don't have to like him for it. War anyone else.

    dick fitzentite, cecil_pupils, and (especially) jimbonics made me hurt my abs laughing. I wasn't posting on CP when Lesnar came along, but i was not one that thought he was a joke. He was a monster with a legit athletic background, and i was curious how he would pan out. After seeing and hearing him, however, i think he's a giant jerkface scrotie mcboogerballs. I don't like him, and i won't pull for him. Yes, he's a freak of nature; yes, he's a skilled athlete--he's a douche bag. I don't like him. And there is nothing wrong with me not liking Lesnar, Penn, Franklin, or anyone else. If you have a problem, come on down to my gym and we can settle this like men. It's called Keyboard Warrior, on the corner of 12th and Never...

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 05:04

    The fact is cock chestner IS a paper champ, he has beat really nobody ( sorry Mir you are nobody), and an old man. He has yet to fight a young, GOOD fighter, but after Carwin destroys Frank mir in the first round with a huge KO punch, Lesner is suppose to come in the ring for a face off, and I bet Carwin will step right up in his face, and if cock-boy wants to shove I think Carwin could and SHOULD shove him to the ground, and growl at him. :) fuck Lesner he is a nothing steroid mental midget.

    Hmmmm, he sure polarises opinion, but love him or hate him he generates a lot of publicity for UFC, especially with casual fans, yes he talks it up like a WWE heel, but once again, draws reactions, just on this post there's about twice as many responses as the average post. I know if I was that big and could throw 250lb humans around like laundry bags I wouldn't give a fuck what people thought of me, and would be an even more annoying and loud mouth douche than I am already
  52. Chiggs Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 07:28

    @dranokills, Agreed, Cant fuckin stand Lesnar period. Also I'd pay to see that(Carwin/Lesnar face-off) Oh wait, guess we probably will be :P, Dana will lead him to the cage on his leash. Also hopefully Shane is shoving his damn xxxxl hands down lesnar;s cock swallowin throat instead of shovin to the mat... @dogpt3, STFU & GTFOff Lesnars nads. Its annoying @Rex13, FUcking Hilarious!!
  53. dranokills Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 08:26

    Sadly Chiggs as much as that would be great to see, and me and you both would love to see brock get his face pushed in right then and won't happen, cause carwin is a classy guy with sense, and would never act the ass like cock-boy does. Of course if LESS-nar gets to aggressive and lays hands on him...hey, what the fuck, dude would just be protecting himself right? We can only hope.... I know one thing for sure, it sure will be fun watching his nuthugging steroid-headed fans cry over his ass beating.

    I don't know if it has been mentioned yet, but Brock Lesnar has a very unfortunate tattoo of a sword/cock between his pecs. It isn't one of those stick on temporary ones either, it is permanent. Just FIYs
  55. Lecter Says:

    Fri, 03/26/10 - 10:30

    Brock Lesnar is a muppet. All he did to earn his belt was beat Heath Hearing and over power an over-45 Randy Couture and a below 250lb Frank Mir. To say that 11 knockouts and 0 loss' Shane Carwin and always impressive former champion Frank Mir are fighting for a make-believe belt is a little insulting to the sport in general. These two mother-fuckers don't care about any interim, next-in-line, something-on-your-waist belt. They want Brock Lesnar, whether that's for personal or professional reasons. They want that fight. All this fight does is make that future a reality. I hope the former WWE superstar and current champion/douchebag is ready to face a threat like he's never experienced before - regardless of which 12-fight+ competitor he faces.

    Ever since coming back from his bout of Stomach herpes, Brocks sense of entitlement and importance is like a raging Volcano. jetting hot gas and vile odors all across the stratosphere. It didnt help that everybody jumped on his nuts when he started babbling about Healthcare reform (Brock, there are a lot of hospitals in the states that suck too bro) and god, when Dana White starting talking about how "MMA fans realized when Brock was gone how much the sport needed him", that was the nail in the coffin. I'm not a Brock hater, per say, but he really really needs a beating at this point. A Brandon Vera type beating.. Maybe we can get Jones up to heavyweight and handle this.
