UFC Quick Quote: 'Real training' helped Brock Lesnar weather first round storm

"We worked out many positions, many specific situations of attack from the bottom and attacks from the top. We even worked katagatame, that was the submission with which he finished the fight. We made a globalized job to make him feel comfortable and able to choose and develop the positions on the floor. Brock is in constant evolution, always cheered up. Since he owns a few fights in MMA, he’s thirsty for knowledge, so he dedicates so much. When you practice something for a long time it’s  normal to become relaxed and even lazy in certain moments. For this reason he performs each time better and is in frank evolution."

-- Brock Lesnar’s Brazilian jiu-jitsu coach, Rodrigo Medeiros, recently spoke to Abril.com.br about preparing the UFC heavyweight champion for his monumental showdown against Shane Carwin at UFC 116 last weekend. Lesnar gushed about "Comprido" at the post-fight press conference and his lessons, which led him to a stunning second round submission after enduring a brutal first round of punishment. In fact, "Brocky Balboa" ate about 60 unanswered punches in the first round of the event's main event. Whether it's his toughness or quick learning curve, the coach feels that Lesnar is the best heavyweight alive and will continue to improve, keeping him on top for a very long time. Care to argue otherwise?
