"He really is a recluse -- when it comes to when he's not in the limelight, he is gone. He has property in Canada. He has property obviously in northern Minnesota and he goes hunting in Wyoming. I mean, the guy, when he's not doing something, he is with his family and he's like an absolute ninja. It's pretty funny. If he came back and he was 100-percent mentally in the game, knowing that he could take whatever it meant to take, he could push himself, he could get hit, he could whatever -- that was the big thing. If he came back and he was mentally 100-percent there, I believe physically he still has the gifts and he still has the ability to improve and to grow, but it's like anything. The game is such a mental thing that once that chink in the armor was there and that kind of embedded itself in his head, I think that was really the point where it was tough for him."
Now that a "definite possibility" exists for the return of Brock Lesnar, who left mixed martial arts (MMA) back in late 2011 to rejoin the ranks of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), those closest to the former heavyweight champion are chiming in about his chances of a second run under the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) banner. That includes longtime trainer Greg Nelson, who tells Sherdog's Beatdown Radio that even with diverticulitis, he believes Lesnar still has the chops to hang in the combat sports world -- assuming the NCAA Division-1 national champion can wrap his head around the fight game, which more often than not, involves getting punched in the face (and he doesn't like it). Something Lesnar is surely reminded of every time he looks in the mirror. If and when he does come back, we know of at least one fighter already in line to meet him.
