Humility is not a Brock Lesnar trademark. You get the sense he walked onto any football field or wrestling mat with the expectation he would be arrested for manslaughter.
Nothing has changed with his MMA pursuits: Lesnar told the Las Vegas Sun over the weekend that November 21 challenger Shane Carwin is giving him little cause for concern.
“He’s a tough guy. He’s undefeated, but some of the guys he’s beaten aren’t worthy of having on your record,” Lesnar said. “He hasn’t fought anybody. He’s fought (Gabriel) Gonzaga, so I really think he’s 1-0.”
Intriguing logic. Carwin’s supporters might reply that victories over a 46-year-old Randy Couture and 3-6 Min Soo Kim don’t exactly constitute the greater glory. But this is Lesnar’s stock: the ornery jock dismissive of anyone else’s chances. The WWE stint may have been an athletic lowlight, but it taught him how to sell tickets.
