Curtis Blaydes: “How Could You Love Brock Lesnar So Much?”
Curtis Blaydes is one more furious Heavyweight competitor. The reason – Brock Lesnar got a chance to fight Daniel Cormier for the UFC Heavyweight belt. Do you remember how Stipe Miocic trash-talked the whole organization for such a disrespectful move? Blaydes was also hoping for a title shot and now it is given to some WWE clown?!
Probably more than one million PPV buys will be sold. Curtis Blaydes is stunned by MMA fans and their strange brains. He can’t understand how such a bad fighter could be so popular. According to Blaydes, it would be the same as giving Will Smith the UFC Middleweight title shot. (via MMAMania.com)
“Will Smith is very popular. You think Will Smith can go in there at 185 and get a title shot? No. Brock Lesnar, he’s going to go fight for the title, go make beaucoup money, and he’s going to go get knocked out,” Blaydes told MMA Fighting.
“He’s not good. It’s weird how MMA fans are, like, just fascinated by his muscles,” he said. “Like, they just like to see a big guy with his physique in the Octagon. They don’t believe he can win, they just like to see him in Octagon. I don’t get it. Maybe they just like his tattoos, I don’t know.”
Brock Lesnar (MMA 5-3, 1 NC; UFC 4-3, 1 NC) hasn’t competed since his cheating victory over Mark Hunt at UFC 200. It was later overturned to no contest after he was tested positive for Clomiphene. He was humiliated by Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 and Cain Velasquez at UFC 121. He defeated Shane Carwin at UFC 116… How many years have passed since then?
Curtis Blaydes has also had marijuana issues back in 2017. Unfortunately, there are very small chances he will ever meet Brock inside the octagon. But if he wants that, Blaydes will have to step in line. Many UFC Heavyweight competitors are angered. And don’t forget Curtis Blaydes has recently called Stipe Miocic for a showdown.
Do you agree with Curtis Blaydes? Do you think Cormier vs Lesnar is based on monetary aspects and nothing else?
