Shane Carwin: Brock Lesnar was fed fights that sell pay-per-views

Props: Heavy.com

Quoteworthy:

"Brock is not good with math. Thankfully, the UFC and WWE have paid him enough money to get a math tutor. I know I wasn’t walked through the front door of the UFC with people holding the door for me. I wasn’t fed fights that sell pay-per-views. I was matched up by promoters and took whatever they put in front of me. One of those fights was the former enforcer for the Mongols Motorcycle Club. His previous fight ended when Mongols in the crowd started fighting and stabbing people. For Brock to say that I have hand-picked my fights is just stupid. I got my start in the WEC and I have fought everyone the UFC put in front of me. I have fought three times as many people then Brock has. If he wants to disrespect the opponents I have fought, that is his choice. I say any man or woman that enters that cage to face an opponent is worthy of my respect. They have trained hard, and to disrespect MMA fighters is disrespecting the sport of MMA. What I can tell you is, talent-wise I respect Brock, but he needs a filter put on his words."

Super-sized sourpuss Shane Carwin continues his verbal tirade in response to disparaging comments made by UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, who will face "The Engineer" at UFC 106 on Nov. 21 for the division title. Carwin has gone on record multiple times about his disdain for Lesnar's contempt for the sport of mixed martial arts -- specifically Brock's trash talking. Apparently Carwin has a "fight fire with fire" mentality, since every time Lesnar makes a comment that doesn't fly with the court of Carwin opinion, the self-appointed defender of good will races to his soapbox for a lesson in Anti-Brockism. The battle lines have clearly been drawn...what side are you on Maniacs?
