For part one of our conversation with Brock Lesnar, click Heath Herring, and then fighting Randy Couture. How did that make you feel?
It didn’t bother me at all. I had something to prove, and that was to be UFC heavyweight champion at the time. It just fueled the fighter within me, and it made me want to prove everybody wrong even more.
With your illness that cropped up before your Shane Carwin fight…you said you came close to feeling like — or thinking — you were going to die. What revelations did you have?
Here I was, I thought I was a healthy person, and I was laying in a hospital room, unsure of what my sickness was. And in a lot of pain, so a lot of things go through your mind, wondering what’s going to happen, what does the future lie and what direction is this going to take you.
Come back tomorrow for the final installment of our interview with Brock Lesnar, plus audio of the entire interview.
