Nik Lentz: I submitted a 'sweaty' Brock Lesnar -- then got launched across the room

U mad?
U mad?

You know all those urban legends that show up on the mixed martial arts message boards claiming "So-and-so tapped Brock Lesnar in training!"

Well, one UFC fighter is ready to start naming names. Specifically, his own. Ladies and germs, I give you UFC "Carny," Nik Lentz:

"I did roll with him one time and number one, it was really gross because the dude sweats like a ridiculous amount so I was just covered in Brock Lesnar sweat, like just dripping in his own sweat but then he was kinda messing around and I jumped on a guillotine and I wound up eventually tapping him out and then he actually got kinda angry and the next time that we started, he just picked me up above his head WWE-style and like threw me across the room so that was the end of my training with Brock. I got him one time. I jumped on the guillotine because he wasn't ready for it and I choked him out and then after that I got thrown across the room."

Lentz (21-3-2), during an appearance on The Verbal Submission on Dec. 4, 2011, told about the one time he ever trained with Brock Lesnar.

"The Carny," who battles submission ace Mark Bocek this Saturday night (Dec. 10, 2011) on the preliminary card of UFC 140 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, trains out of the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy under Greg Nelson, a man who worked with Lesnar at the beginning of his fight career.

And if he can tap the "Brockness Monster," he should have a pretty good shot at submitting Bocek. Agree or disagree?
