Heyman: Lesnar to be a 'Carwin-eating carnivore' at UFC 116

New, 18 comments

Paul Heyman probably knows Brock Lesnar better than almost anybody right now. He was his manager when Lesnar broke into WWE and their relationship carried on even though Lesnar left the world of professional wrestling.

At his site, Heyman Hustle, Heyman has published a very interesting article that takes a look into Lesnar's life heading into his undisputed heavyweight championship match against Shane Carwin at UFC 116 on Saturday.

Here is an excerpt:

There is an eery calmness to Brock Lesnar these days. I've never seen him this close to a major event and yet have so much peace of mind. Usually, he's a self-described "bear with a sore ass" heading into fight week. This time, however, Brock's approach is a bit different. No tension. No pacing. No "can't wait til I get in there and the fight starts" mentality. Brock Lesnar is simply counting down the days until he has a job to do, and that job is to once again unify the UFC Heavyweight Championship.

"I have a different perspective on everything," the only man who has ever held the NCAA, WWE, and UFC Heavyweight Championships said, "I know what I have to do, and I am sure Shane Carwin knows I am uniquely capable of doing it."
