very interesting interview, Brock has sure relaxed from his old days. He seems much more friendly

Yeah very good interview as always from Ariel.

Brock is really easy to root for IMO, the heel persona, the way he goes back to obscurity after he fights, stuff like that makes me like him.

If he had Nog's 2002 era chin, I don't know if anyone could beat him other than by Frank Mir style submission.

Great interview. Made Brock appear likeable. He came off very humble. I also like how he made no excuses to the loss, saying Cain whooped his ass. I just have the feeling if he gets a big win over Dos Santos we will see the douche bag side again.

I give him his due though, he is a beast. He just lacks a fighters natural instinct. Unless he learns how to get hit, hi success will be very limited.

I don't think that Lesnar has a bad chin, I just think he has to learn what to do after he gets hit. We hear repeatedly from a lor of people that he doesn't have the fighter's instinct, he doesn't have a chin, he doesn't have this that and the other. Well, he has shown that he can get hit and keep fighting against Mir and Couture, he showed that he can get rocked bad and keep his head enough to survive, get back up, and ultimately win.

Cain has never lost and has crushed some excellent fighters and somehow Lesnar losing to him makes him somehow forever unable to take a punch. It is possible that he took a hard shot and had trouble getting his bearings and just couldn't figure out what to do. He probably panicked because he just doesn't have the information yet that he needs to be able to work his way out of a tight situation like that. If he spars with legitimate fighters and learns footwork and how to tie up when in trouble to avoid taking shots instead of trying to run away ineffectively he is gonna be a force again.

Brock and Undertaker's common friend = Paul Heyman
