    So, I'm not a Brock Lesnar fan, but I find this interesting.
    In MMA, fighters do use the threat of death in certain cliches, Nate always says "kill or be killed" which is a metaphor for his mentality. (To be fair, I'm not 100% sure that Nate actually knows what a metaphor is, but he is using it correctly.)
    But in high profile UFC fights, three instances of fighters talking about "killing" and "death" come up.
    The first is BJ Penn saying he is going to "fight to the death" vs GSP. Given the circumstances of how that fight went, you know quitting on the stool, it came off ironic, but it did get some attention from the fans here on Sherdog. Maybe it's only my own perception, but that comment was more of a way to tell people about his mindset going into the fight.
    The other two just happen to involve Brock.
    Frank Mir really made it a point to let people know that he wanted to literally kill Lesnar and have the first death in the UFC. There was a little bit of outrage here on the sdog about it, but it went away after the hilarious UFC 100 result.
    Now, a full 100 numbered UFC events later, Mark Hunt of all people is loudly claiming that Brock tried to kill him. It's very noteworthy as he didn't react much to Bigfoot or Mir roiding, but did a full 180 after UFC 200.
    Now, maybe it's a money ploy which makes this all just an odd coincidence, but is there something about Brock that the people facing him in the octagon suddenly become interested in mortality?
    Just looking for random opinions and I welcome any flaming that I'll get.
    But I have a suspicious feeling that fighting Brock is a lot closer to life and death then most UFC fights. Like Joanna Jedrechzick seems a full step ahead of her competition, but I don't perceive that anyone in her division would ever talk about "death" while discussing fighting her.

    It's purely about money. Most of the HW division in the UFC could murder Brock very easily.

    I think you forgot an instance. Ken Shamrock threatening to beat Tito Ortiz into a living death, that was a very high profile fight at the time.

    Pretty sure Mir made that comment after the UFC 100 fight, and was trying to talk up a rubber match.

    You're kidding. The UFC HW division is weak, Brock just easily defeated a top 10 HW and would defeat any HW in the UFC outside of the top 6.

    A roided up, Pride era "The Axe Murder" Wanderlei was pretty fucking close.

    It annoys them that a 'fake wrestler' makes them look like amateurs

    judging by tito's response, he didn't take it very seriously.

    Hunt's comment was also ironic because he once tried to kill a 185lb pure boxer in Pride when he had him on the canvas and Mark tried to jump on the guy's neck and head with his knees, 300 pounds behind it. I know you all remember the moment I'm talking about so don't act dumb.

    Good point, I did forget that, to be honest I wasn't watching at that time, so me learning about it was all in retrospect.
    But still, a "living death" has to be at least a little bit better than full on death.

    Shogun in Pride around 2005 - 2007 was the definition of a killer.

    Lesnar treads the line between life and death? I guess. His asshole did rot out once. Plus he's huge and roided to the gills and that can cause health problems.

    I believe you are correct. And didn't the comment cost Frank Mir his commentary job with WEC?

    Yup, dana acted like a :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: about it and took his wec commenting job away so we never got to hear Mir talk about Miguel Torres anymore :(

    I read it just joking. Umm... Brock is like the most scary thing that you can meet in the octagon if you look at this f*cking animal.

    [​IMG]

    Super strong, nice cardio, always have something special in his blood <20>, very good wrestling, brutal GNP. And he just looks like he is not human being. Probably if he would hit me on the ground 3 to 4 times my head would look like that

    [​IMG]

    I would think at least few times about my life before fighting this dude. What if he gets into roid rage, and judge will not be able to save me? And shit like that happens. Its possibility.

    If you are not Cain, Dos Santos or Overeem you probably have a lot to worry about.


    Anyway, seeing Mighty Mouse vs Brock Lesnar could be very fun.

    And Hunt is scared of nobody.

    He just want the money.

    The real question burning in everyone's mind is, "Did he get to the bottom of it yet?"

    He's making it out to be about roids which is BS but cmon Hunt we know you want that Brock money. It would be cool to see Brock throw him like 200k but I thinkk Hunt would just bitch and say he deserved it all
