(This may be your best chance yet to hear the phrase ‘pencil-necked geek’ said aloud on ESPN.)
Change of plans, Potato Nation. Remember that press conference this week where Dana White said Brock Lesnar would be in attendance to fill us in on his health status and future fighting prospects? Yeah, that’s not happening anymore. Instead he’ll be appearing on Wednesday’s edition of "Sportscenter" on ESPN, where he’ll probably do the bare minimum in terms of answering questions while also making it very clear that this was not his idea. Lesnar’s scheduled to appear at 11 am EST, but if we’ve learned anything by sitting around in hotel rooms and watching ESPN in a constant loop, it’s that you’ll probably be able to catch it throughout the day, just like you’ll probably be really sick of all the clever one-liners about last night’s NBA games by noon.
The real question is, will Brock actually tell us something worth hearing in this interview? Or is he going to continue to act like his condition is a state secret that must not be discussed?
