"I was speechless when they told me I was going to be on the cover [of UFC Undisputed 2010]. I wasn't even sure if I was ever going to be able to fight again. I was 240-pounds lying there, and now I'm back to 280-pounds and back in the gym kicking ass. I can't wait to get back into the Octagon. I've put myself in this category as this confrontational person who creates controversy, but for people to grasp what was happening and to be like, 'Holy s---, I might never be able to see this guy fight again!' That saddened them more than anything probably. I'm sure some of them said, 'I hope that son of a b---- dies.' I don't know. I'm sure there are people out there like that, but that's just the way it is. I'm glad THQ decided to have me and the UFC has really backed me through this whole thing, so it's been great."
UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar talks to ESPN.com about landing the cover of UFC Undisputed 2010, THQ's next installment in their mixed martial arts video game franchise. The Pasty-faced Goliath is set to defend his division title against undefeated wrecking machine Shane Carwin at UFC 116 on July 3 in Las Vegas. Will he suffer the SI cover jinx and fall to "The Engineer?" Or have we officially entered "The Lesnar Era?"
