Quote of the Day: Brock Lesnar Retired Because Overeem Was “Just That Much Better Than Me”

In a recent interview given to Jim Rome, Dana White was a little more candid than we have seen when discussing Brock Lesnar’s recent retirement, specifically what was going through the former UFC Heavyweight Champion’s mind moments after becoming permanently incontinent compliments of an Alistair Overeem body kick. “It felt like I got kicked by a horse,” said Lesnar. Ok, so maybe that’s an exaggeration, but White states that Lesnar didn’t see himself taking down “The Reem” anytime soon, figuratively or literally:

The conversations I’ve had with Brock Lesnar since that fight, all indications point to it’s over. … Here’s what Brock said to me, he said ‘I’ll tell you what after my surgery from diverticulitis, this last surgery I had, I have never felt so good in my life.’ He said ‘I’ve had the best camp I’ve ever had, no injuries, I was in great shape, all the things that could go right, went right, that guy is just that much better than me and it’s time for me to retire.

Well, this pretty much seals the deal on that issue. If there were any doubts as to Mr. Lesnar’s heart and true investment in MMA, here you go.

By The Numbers: Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin

Now that the Brock Lesnar-Shane Carwin UFC heavyweight championship match is officially happening at UFC 106, we thought we’d go ahead and compare some key stats.  As you can see, they’re both around the same size (* denotes, well, that’s what he weighs in at, but probably not what he weighs on fight night), with about the same reach.  Carwin has more total MMA experience, but has logged less actual Octagon time.  They both have NCAA national wrestling titles, though at significantly different levels.

The big difference?  Number of successfully resolved feuds with Cage Potato.  The mental toughness and fortitude that a fighter gains from that baptism by fire is not to be discounted.
