Brock Lesnar has revealed for the first time the sheer hell he went through for his last fight in the UFC.
It was announced yesterday that Lesnar had re-signed with the WWE despite a lucrative offer from Dana White to prize the current WWE Heavyweight Champion back to the octagon.
Although Lesnar admits the money factor played games in his head, the decision idealIy came down to his health;
“When you’re sick for two or three years and you don’t know what’s going on, all of a sudden I went from the baddest man on the planet, to vulnerable,” Lesnar said.
“It’s reality. My whole life I’ve been this superhuman freak that just kills people, a savage beast. I wasn’t that guy anymore. … Of course my confidence was totally jaded on my last three fights. Whose wouldn’t be?
Is Anderson Silvathe same guy he was (after breaking his leg)?
“I’ve been a barbarian my whole life. I’m just a smarter barbarian now. Evolution, you know?”
Lesnar will meet Roman Reigns in this Sunday’s Wrestlemania main event – will his decision to re-sign with the WWE sway the outcome of the the match?
