Well look who’s getting name-checked on "Inside MMA." Ron Kruck references our story on Brock Lesnar‘s ongoing health issues before cutting to Randy Couture, who says he’s spoken with Lesnar and things are looking up for the big man. If we can believe Couture (and he doesn’t seem the like the type to just make stuff up — that’s Tito Ortiz‘s game), Lesnar is already back in the gym and ought to be Octagon-ready by this spring. We should probably treat this with the same healthy skepticism we had for "Comprido" Medeiros’ assurance that everything was going to be just fine, but at least it’s encouraging news.
Once again though, we can’t help but wonder what’s with all the secrecy. If Lesnar really is back in the gym and beating the hell out of poor Chris Tuchscherer again, why wouldn’t he be cool with the world knowing that? Is this all part of an attempt to fake his own death just to get out of paying taxes? That’s it, isn’t it? That sly son of a bitch.
