Brock Lesnar: 'UFC 116 will be my second coming'


"This is kind of my second coming, its brought a lot of life into me and my training camp. I'm excited to be a part of this. The setback for me has been a good thing because it allowed me to sit back and focus on my diet and the way I train. I brought some new things to the table, a new strength and conditioning coach and a new boxing coach. I really regrouped since October (2009) and rejuvenated myself with a new approach to training. It's been very refreshing. I won't have to cut any weight this time. I came in this morning right at 265 (pounds). I've had 40 tune up fights in practice since camp started and if I have any ring rust by the time July 3 rolls around it will be a crying shame."

UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar talks about his rebirth on today's UFC 116: "Lesnar vs. Carwin" media conference call. The former WWE wrestler turned mixed martial arts powerhouse hasn't competed since his second round drubbing of Frank Mir at UFC 100 nearly one year ago -- thanks to a crippling case of diverticulitis. Now that a recovered Lesnar is fresh off his "medical miracle," he's cleaned up his diet and refined his training. Will it be enough to topple the undefeated "Engineer" on July 3?
