Death Clutch: Don't expect Brock Lesnar to fish tampons out of your drain pipe

The reviews for Brock Lesnar's "Death Clutch" book are starting to trickle in and if you found yourself blase towards his toned-down performance on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13, you'll be glad to hear the "Old Lesnar" makes a few appearances throughout the book.

Ever wonder why the former UFC Heavyweight Champion takes his privacy so seriously? Here's a "Death Clutch" excerpt courtesy of Anton Tabuena:

"I think it’s pretty common knowledge that I’m a very private man, and there’s a reason for that. When I’m on the job, in the ring, at the arena, I’m there to entertain you. I understand that. You paid to see me, and I owe it to you to make sure your money was well spent. But when I’m not on the job, I don’t think I owe anything to anybody. If you’re a plumber, and you’re out to dinner with your family, would you like it if the waiter walked up and said, 'Hey, the toilet just backed up, can you come in the back and fix it?' Probably not. You are there to eat, not to fish tampons out of the drain pipe."

Lesnar also breaks down his tenure with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and ensuing "Road to Redemption" against Frank Mir at UFC 100.

A recent flare-up of diverticulitis, the intestinal disorder that's plagued him since late 2009, was severe enough to disrupt his current training camp and force him to withdraw from his UFC 131 headliner against Junior dos Santos, a titanic tilt that was expected to name the heavyweight division's new number one contender.

It still might, but now "Cigano" will have to conquer former Interim champion Shane Carwin on June 11 in Vancouver to earn a crack at reigning 265-pound kingpin Cain Velasquez.

In the meantime, Lesnar will have to explore medical options to help him get back on the road to recovery. During his absence, you can get your fix by checking out "Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination, and Survival" when it comes out on May 24.
