UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, recently stopped by his home state’s prized possession, the Mall of America, to meet and greet some fans. He also took some time to answer a few questions regarding his new-found fame in the MMA world.
Speaking to what his life has been like since UFC 100, Brock said, “It’s been awfully crazy, but the good thing is that I’ve been through it before. I’ve been in the spotlight for a number of years, and my wife is very supportive. She’s been threw this kind of stuff before too.”
Lesnar also mentioned that behind the scenes, he’s just a regular guy.
“We just try to stay low key, and when I’m at home I’m just Joe Blow,” he noted. “And I’m a new dad now too, but it’s great to have all the fans come out here and support me.”
When asked about his relationship with the UFC brass, Lesnar added, “I think we needed each other. I was looking for a new challenge, and they were looking for a heavyweight to run that division. They needed a guy like myself, to help take it to a new level. I just want to be the best UFC heavyweight champion in history. And I enjoy my job, it’s good place for me to be.”
Brock was later asked what he foresaw as his next challenge in the UFC.
“This heavyweight division has a lot of good guys, and there’s always some sleeping giant under some rock somewhere,” Lesnar said. “I would enjoy a fight with Fedor, hopefully they can seal something together. I think that the best should absolutely fight the best.”
Well, Brock wants the fight. Fedor wants the fight. Fans want the fight. But will the people who actually make those decisions make it happen? We shall see.
