Remember this guy^?His name is Brock Lesnar, and he’s never been bigger, stronger, or more powerful according to famed Wrestling and now MMA commentator Jim Ross. I am publishing an article on him because he’s the most popular heavyweight champion in UFC history.
I am partially responding to an article published this week by Ross on Fox Sports, where he indicates that Lesnar’s contract with WWE is up in March and he has a BIG decision to make at that point. Ross says that one of three decisions will be made by Lesnar,
“stay with pro wrestling, return to the UFC or head home for good to spend time with his family.”
Well, I am here to tell you RIGHT NOW that Lesnar will not be back in the UFC. If he returns to Wrestling, no surprise, if he retires from the limelight, no surprise there either. I have a short-list of reasons why Lesnar will not return to active combat sports, or any sport that is real and relevent in the world today. Here goes:
1. In 2001 Lesnar was busted for possession of a controlled substance, i.e. steroids. The charges were dropped because it turns out the “steroids” were actually “growth hormones”. Back in 2001 HGH was relatively new, so the “law” didn’t recognize that these substances were steroids by another name and they let Lesnar off, with nothing more than a mugshot and a few hours in jail.
2. Lesnar is enormous, but we all know that his body broke down while in the UFC. Yes he was huge, but compared to the guy who was in WWE, he was a pasty, smaller, and fluffier version of himself.
3. Well, look at the picture folks. He is most likely able to openly use TRT, or HGH, or whatever the heck roids he wants to in his theatrical role there in WWE whilst earning a six figure income on what amounts to a part-time job. THE UFC’S new drug tests are popping EVERY drug in existence, from HGH, (not detectible during the Lesnar Era) to EPO, to Roids, to asthma meds that can be used for weight cuts. The fact is, you have to be clean to fight in the UFC these days, and if you aren’t YOU WILL BE CAUGHT.
If you haven’t connected the dots thus far, then you’re either dumber than a box of hammers, or you aren’t an avid MMA fan. The body Lesnar had in the UFC couldn’t handle the sport, and the body that Brock currently has in WWE, can’t be had while competing in the UFC. At 37 years of age, Lesnar’s time has come and gone, and like all stars, his is fading.
