It’s an amazing thing when one of the top heavyweights in MMA tells another top heavyweight that ‘he’s lame’. The words ‘he’s lame’ really only mean anything if its coming out of the mouth of a dude who’s undefeated with every one of his wins coming in the first round. MiddleEasy.com loves Shane Carwin and we think he sort of shows some love back when he tweets our articles. It’s good to be friends with a guy that has the ability to defeat Voltron. It’s even better to be friends with a dude that gives lessons to Brock Lesnar on how to win with a little pride (because there is no way we would tell him). Carwin blogged on his page a little bit about the UFC Fan Expo and a lot about Brock Lesnar:
“The flipping off of the fans that just lined your pocket with millions of dollars is just LAME. He may be a Champion but he has a long ways to go before he earns the respect of a Champion. The fans are why we do this Brock, this sport is not about fat paychecks and drama it is about hard work and sacrifice for a shot to do what you did last night. It doesn’t matter how much money you make if you can’t earn your peers respect and the respect and love of the greatest sporting fans in the world. We have no scripts in this sport, no pre-determined earning amount and no pre-determined outcomes. It doesn’t matter if you win or loose it matters how you win or loose.
Every autograph I give, every hand I shake I am thankful that you give me the opportunity to be a part of your world. This is the greatest sport int he world and most of the athletes in it deserve the love and respect they get and some just dont get it.
From leaving the venue all the way to the Airport I have had fans of the sport ask me to take out Brock Lesnar for them.”
In order to speak like that, you must exist in a different world that normal human beings are accustomed to live in. The atmosphere is probably different and they probably breathe sulfur on that planet. There’s one thing that’s left to be said here. Velasquez vs. Carwin are going to battle it out at UFC 104. Both of which are undefeated and the winner gets a shot at throwing an overhand right at Brock Lesnar’s dome (legally inside of a cage). Put it on your radar (before it puts you on its radar…whatever that means). [Source]
