Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Brock Lesnar: Here Comes the Pain

Brock Lesnar‘s segment on E:60 aired yesterday, and we learned a few things about the WWE-superstar turned UFC heavyweight contender. Namely:

— His childhood on a struggling dairy farm in Bumblefuck, South Dakota, inspired him to achieve something greater with his life.

— He’s always liked beating the crap out of people. “Handling another human being and making him feel less than you is, I don’t know, something that I got a thrill out of,” Lesnar says.

— He never watched “a lick” of pro wrestling before he joined the WWE.

— Being a WWE champion takes its toll, both physically and emotionally. He wrestled for six months with a blown-out knee and three broken ribs, and lost two years of memories to vodka and pain pills, which he was basically addicted to.

— Bret “The Hitman” Hart looks scary-old.

— Steroids are a touchy subject for Lesnar, even though he’s never taken them. When the interviewer starts asking him about his unnaturally large physique, Brock sees where the line of questioning is headed and storms off. “I have never failed a fucking drug test,” he says later.

— Lesnar doesn’t put much faith in Randy Couture‘s claim that he’s stronger now than he was 10 years ago. “My ass, he is. I’m 31 and I’m not as strong as I was 10 years ago. That’s a straight-up lie.”

After the jump: E:60‘s full reporter/producer discussion on the Brock Lesnar story.

"Mr Josh Says:

Lots of people are jumping the gun! I mean he is good….as good as kimbo….not saying Kimbos bad…. "

Did you just use the word "good" in conjunction with Kimbo?
And you're not saying Kimbo's bad?

I would LOVE to see Brock v. Kimbo. Just to prove what a joke Kimbo really is. Brock would annihilate him and have him sucking shit sandwiches through a straw. Period. Brock is insanely fast for someone his size, and powerful. Ask Heath Herring. He knocked him across the ring with one shot. I don't care about his "professional wrestling" career, I know the man has some serious potential to go to the top in MMA. As far as the steroid use goes, he was in the WWE or whatever. Isn't that a prerequisite for that? Like it or not, Brock's gonna be around for a bit.

Nice try at trolling there, Billy. Very subtle.

Haha brock is going to stomp his head into the mat. Randy is done, he's too old. He just wants to get a few more big fights in to get paid. Randy is 60lbs lighter, not as powerful and he is 10+ years older. Its brock's time even if he isn't ready but he makes up for that with size,power and agility. Randy don't stand a chance my friends.

*Brock Lesnar hands a magnifing glass to Dana White, and then rips his own pants off*

CAN YOU SEE ME NOW? CAN YOU-SEE-ME......alrigt this joke died a while ago...Brock's always made a mountain out of an ant hill when it come to his accomplishments. He won't last as long in MMA, mark my words. Dana's will drop Lesnar like a hot tamale as soon as he accumulates a few losses. His only virtue is that he's physically like Randelman, but that only go so far when you lack technical abilities.

EVERYBODY in mma/ufc using roids period
Mr Josh- October 22, 2008 at 8:37 am
Lots of people are jumping the gun! I mean he is good as kimbo....not saying Kimbos bad.... I mean Brock has won two fights! only two! and if he beats Randy then yeah sure he is good. but thats only three fights. lets see how many fights he has won after 10 or fifteen fights. then you can difine luck and skill like we all can with Fador.
Damian- October 22, 2008 at 6:21 am
I like how these jackasses in the discussion say " how much does college wresting really help in MMA" Not to bring up someone that everyone hates but MATT FUCKING HUGHES was a college wrestler and DOMINATED the welter weight division! everyone else can now commence talking shit for bringing up MMA's most hated champion.
George St. Pierre- October 22, 2008 at 5:27 am
I know da outcum already. I see da finale of da fight dar against brock lesner and randy coture. I see da fight end-ing wit lesnaars hand bein raised. Mir and Lesnaar 2 for da heavyweight belt. Will be good show but I not as good as me and bjpussy 2.
hahahahah fuck Im stoned. But yeah for real Leser FTW and MIR is FTW. Mir and Lesnar 2 would be pretty crazy. I think that's how it will go down, then mir will get the back of his head punched in again and lose.

He has potential. Who cares if people like him or hate him? Why do you have to argue and try and prove your points. I like him because he has potential and so what if he's a meathead. If he took sterroids, hes not taking them anymore so why don't we all drop it. Sterroids are easy come and easy go, if he stopped using roids he would shrink.
never failed a drug test- October 22, 2008 at 3:35 am
Notice in the interview he says "i've never failed a fucking drug test" and not "I've never taken steroids." Does that mean he took them during his WWE career when he knew he wasn't going to get tested?
UFC fan- October 22, 2008 at 3:19 am
You cock-chestner fans are really gullible. you think, being raised on a farm, drinking milk, and having good genes makes you look like you have no neck?
He is a ROID-head! And you are in denial.
maybe after captain CUNToure beats his ass faster than Mir did, all you idiot cock fans will go the way of the kimbo slice fans.........back into the trash heap.

How can anyone question a guy who walks away from a $45 million contract to be a real athlete again?

The steroid stuff is old and about as funny and true as Chuck Norris jokes. See those pics of him as a kid? He had bigger arms at 12 than Couture has now. He grew up on a dairy farm, milk does a body good. Some people have superior genes, be them athletic, intellectual, beauty or the complete opposites.

He sucks ass thats why Anthony.. He should go back to acting like a fighter.. Not at all impressed with his "mma" or should I say UFC fighting.
axhed- October 21, 2008 at 9:30 pm
he called brock "a 260lb ... "

lesnar prolly hasn't weight that much since he was 15.
Anthony- October 21, 2008 at 9:23 pm
@ Chilly Chill

- Dude most people aren't "on his dick" hy is it that everyone can be on Couture's dick, Fedor's "dick" and shit but not Brock's? He is a legit fighter. How bout you quit being a jealous bitch and stop disecting everything that is Lesnar sit back and watch a good fight? How does that sound?
brock is a steroid freak- October 21, 2008 at 5:46 pm
my name says it all, he has a unfair advantage over everyone for using them his entire career

Brock is a guy that is both easy to like and easy to dislike... at the same time.

Things I like about him:
1) Tons of physical ability for a guy his size.
2) Solid wrestling base, a good thing to build on in MMA.
3) Turned his back on $$$ in order to be true to himself.
4) Is taking MMA seriously. Laying low and training his butt off.

Things I don't like about him:
1) He often comes off as a completely egotistical jerk-wad. Should he somehow manage to squeek out a win against Randy, I'm not so sure I'm excited about him being the "new face of the heavyweight division."

When Randy says he's "stronger than he was ten years ago" he may not be talking just about physical strength. Randy is simply saying that the Randy of today could kick the Randy-of-1998's butt in an MMA match. Brock can't argue with that, because no doubt, the Brock of today (with all his recent striking and submission training) would murder the Brock of 10 years ago.
Massiveamounts- October 21, 2008 at 5:15 pm
Randy's a jiu jitsu it pains me to see these reporters, which I have great respect for many of them, I understand the mainstream media is just beginning to accept, or forced to accept because of fan popularity but damn do your homework folks....that is your job.

Oh and RH perfect quote, I think there's no doubt in my mind after seeing how he reacted to the steroids question how he answered it "I've never tested positive" that's the only way to answer it so if you do test positive in the future you can't be called a liar...hey I said I never tested positive not that I didn't do roids. I came from this interview hating this guy, he's arrogant as hell, talks shit about Randy whom I don't even care for as a fighter that much anyway but he's well respected in mma and Lesnar should show him that respect. I've studied MA since I was 13 nearly 20 yrs and people who come from MA background in MA seem to show respect to their opponent because of the way MA teaches you than most wrestlers who enter the sport. Damn I hope Randy kicks his ass but I hate to say it i think Brock will just overpower him as he did HH, HH isn't a small guy by any standards and Lesnar just bullyed him like he was a 12 yr old little girl.

What I came away thinking from this piece, Lesnar's a roid injecting (or was at one time, just look at how much bigger and ripped he was during his time wrestling and how he is now) arrogant prick who's got an overinflated ego and sense of how awesome he is....when he starts talking shit and disrespecting others is where i draw the line with supporting him or truly disliking him, and I now strongly dislike this cock-trap.
Dmonicideals- October 21, 2008 at 5:07 pm
It is good to see that Bret Hart was able to get past the brain-damage he recieved from Goldbergs standing side kick off the ropes. I didn't think he would ever talk right again.

Chilly: Hate all you want, but you cannot deny that he is going to be a great fighter.
Vince- October 21, 2008 at 5:03 pm
wtf?!?!?! they're totally fucking clueless...
UFC fan- October 21, 2008 at 5:02 pm
I didnt see anything but a bunch of shirts sitting around a table in a dark room, in B/W.
What did that do?
I am bored now.
All that did was hype cock-chestner, it didn't impress me, not even a tiny bit.
Of all the things I have seen on this site, this was the biggest waste of time.
Chilly Chill- October 21, 2008 at 4:40 pm
What did that clear up? I still hate brock. Why are they making it seem like hes a awesome fighter? He wrestled in highschool and college and beat heath hearring. I don't get it. GET OFF HIS DICK EVERYONE!

@Fenix: I worked for Best Buy back in '94 and as a result of some promotion they were doing had the pleasure of meeting Randy 'Macho Man' Savage. He showed up to the store in full persona, vaulted out of a stretch limo - spent the next 3 hours talking to everyone, signed anything they wanted, posed for pictures and all that. Once the event was over I was still on crowd control making sure he had a chance to relax and change into street clothes. I sat back in a side room with him waiting for his transportation to show up and we just kinda bullshitted for about 40 minutes. He was a really decent guy, very humble and had no ego to speak of. You could see in his face and by the stories he told how freakin' worn down they are by their show schedule. Was never really a huge fan of wrasslin' but I do give them credit for busting ass.

Most memorable part was seeing a Honda Accord pull up to the install bay doors, he stands up - starts grabbing his gear and says "There's my ride." I guess it was the look on my face that asked the question for me, he put his sunglasses on and said "That's Wrestling man, come in a Limo, leave in a Pinto." he laughed and walked out to the car. :D

Brock is awesome, I agree with MKXii on E60 but you would think the people on the show would be a little more versed in mma. "what about Kimbo wasnt he a mma guy?" WTF?
