I have been a fan of Brock Lesnar since his WWF/WWE days. I was hella excited when he stepped into the world of MMA. I will be a fan of his when he is gone from the sport. The only problem I have is the way he is trying to leave. If I were in his shoes, I would play out the rest of my contract and then leave. He is giving all the Brock hater the satisfaction of his downfall in the sport. But it really comes down to the fact that he is a victim of his own sucess (outside of MMA of course).
According to Dave Meltzer of Yahoo! Sports/Wrestling Observer, Brock is currently looking for an “exit strategy” from the UFC. Meltzer said on his radio show that the fight with Velasquez has changed Brock’s attitude on fighting and he is at the stage in his life where he doesn’t want to get injured. He’s very well off financially and the business man in him apparently knows that it may be time to move on. Meltzer also mentioned that Brock hasn’t trained a single day since the Velasquez fight nor he has returned any phone calls to Dana or Zuffa about upcoming matches. Dave pointed out if Brock was motivated, he would be right back in the gym training and bringing in new coaches with the goal of beating Cain yet he isn’t doing that. He’s hunting and hasn’t even thought about his next fight. Lesnar apparently wants to do WrestleMania “badly” and will earn an estimated 2 million dollars for 30 minutes of work. Everything is pointing towards Brock having one more fight and ending his contract. His head doesn’t seem to be in the fighting game and it looks like it was just yet another successful business move.
