UFC heavyweight contenders are of no consequence to Brock Lesnar

Props: The Sun

Quoteworthy:

"I watch the other heavyweights and I don't feel threatened by any of them. I'm not getting caught up in la-la land. I'm keeping everything in perspective and keeping it real. But even though I've got the belt, I can still become a better fighter ... It poses a whole other threat now, with people gunning for you and not just me trying to climb the ladder ... Put it this way, guys play golf for recreation. You don't fight and get bloody noses and black eyes for fun. I'm a grown man and I have to make a living out of this."

UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar dismisses the existence of a real challenge within his division despite already holding a submission loss to Interim Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir. Lesnar and "Murr" will clash in a title unification bout at UFC 100 that will also determine just how far the former NCAA and WWE wrestler has come in his still-young MMA career. If he manages to best Mir on July 11, there is a list of up-and-coming 265-pounders who are also waiting for their shot. Is a guy like Shane Carwin a threat to the heavyweight crown? Or is Brock, despite what he says, getting caught up in "la-la land?"
