"I was on Opie and Anthony a couple of nights ago and those guys were like you know what? [Brock Lesnar is] your Mike Tyson. This is the guy where people are gonna tune in and say 'Oh My God what's this guy gonna do next?' You know what the crazy part is? I just flew up there a couple weeks ago and we hung out and went to dinner. [Lesnar's] such a good guy, but I'll give you this: The week of the event I have a hard time dealing with him. He gets miserable, he's a grouchy guy who can snap at any time. That's for real."
UFC President Dana White does not condone but at the same time understands the behavior of Brock Lesnar before, during and after UFC 100. White gave Lesnar a verbal lashing following his meltdown against Frank Mir in the main event of their July 11 super-show, but also admits that (aside from the unprovoked sponsor bashing) he might have reacted in a similar fashion following the months of trash talk coming out of the Mir camp. Lesnar -- who already claims he's built like a black man may indeed have that same aura surrounding him that Tyson did. We can only hope that his career ends on more favorable terms. Not just for him, but for the sake of mixed martial arts as well.
