If you missed the UFC 131 countdown show last night, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Of noting is that the UFC enlisted the help of former WWE writer Paul Heyman to help produce the Camp Carwin segments of the show, which he was likely hired for when it was supposed to be his pal Brock Lesnar fighting dos Santos. It’s likely no coincidence, though that Carwin seemed to have a lot more contrived soundbites than usual like, “I’ve wrestled since I was six years old. These hands are meant to get ahold of people. I get ahold of Junior dos Santos, the fight’s over.”
The highlight may be Georges St-Pierre’s attempt at sarcastic humor, when he tells the camera that “Kenny [Florian] is a fool. I even don’t like him. I don’t know why he’s coming here. I despise him.” This may be as close as we ever see GSP trash talking someone, so we’ll take whatever we’ll get.
