After knocking out Frank Mir in less then two minutes of the second round at UFC 100, Brock Lesnar went on to flip off the audience and berate his defeated opponent. Many blasted Lesnar for his unsportsmanlike and demeaning comments, including UFC fighter Randy Couture, who told Seattle radio show host BJ Shea that he was confused by some of Lesnar’s remarks.
“We really don’t need to know that he’s getting on his wife that night.” Couture stated. “You’re married to Sable, you think that would be happening all the time.”
As for Lesnar’s comments about Mir, Couture said, “That’s not the kind of thing our sport is known for. Those kinds of antics and those kinds of comments. It’s about comraderie and respect. And that’s the martial arts part of what we do. And I think he lost sight of that or hasn’t found that yet.”
Couture went on to note that Lesnar’s actions did accomplish one thing – to get people to really want to see Lesnar get beat.
“I know there’s a lot of people who are going to tune to see when he gets beat now,” Couture noted. “I got 10 texts that night watching the fight [saying] ‘what an idiot.'”
