Tim Hague got a taste of Brock Lesnar's power when he went to play the role of cannon fodder at Team DeathClutch in advance of the UFC 141 pay-per-view on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas. Photo via Getty Images.
"Was pretty surreal. Best training, and best group of guys I've ever trained with. WAR LESNAR. Because I need to get better at everything, and being able to work with Pat Barry and Cole Konrad one-on-one was unreal. Working MMA with Brock and five other legit UFC level HW's every day is something I don't get up in Edmonton. I'm not gonna give away any of his strategy, but he is scary strong, and scary conditioned, and if he gets the jump on a takedown, you're going down, or you're blowing out a knee or something haha. I just went there for a week to be a [heavyweight] dummy for Brock and the guys, I was slightly outta shape, but know what I have to do to be better next time. I wasn't paid or nothing, didn't ask to be and felt like I should have paid them to be there. I don't know who's better (Lesnar or Konrad), they both made me their bitch on the mats, and Cole's boxing is great as well. I got invited back for a full camp, and I'm chomping at the bit to make that happen."
Former UFC heavyweight Tim Hague (via The Underground) got a taste of what the division's top wrestlers are all about after he was invited to be a full-time rag doll for Brock Lesnar and Co. at Team DeathClutch in advance of the UFC 141 pay-per-view on Friday night (Dec. 30, 2011) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lesnar will try to get back into the title chase by taking on Alistair Overeem, the deadliest heavyweight striker in all of mixed martial arts. To help better prepare him for the "The Reem's" varied stand-up attack, he's spent the past week or so unplugging "The Thrashing Machine." Definitely a great experience for Hague, but does it do anything for Lesnar? Anyone think beating up a fighter who was 1-4 under the ZUFFA banner is waste of time for the biggest fight of his career? Or was this just a small part of the total package?
