• UFC Star Says He Doesn’t Understand Brock Lesnar’s Drawing Power
During the recent UFC Fight Night Adelaide post-fight press conference, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos talked about Daniel Cormier vs. Brock Lesnar for the UFC Heavyweight Championship possibly talking place in 2019.
JDS talked about how he doesn’t understand Lesnar’s drawing power and said the following:
“The way I understand is that’s what Daniel Cormier wants to do to make money. So somehow, people want to see that, because if they pay to see that it’s gonna be interesting for the UFC, of course.
Somehow, Brock Lesnar sells. Somehow they want to see him fighting. I don’t know why. Why? Because he says stupid things? Because he’s a big guy who says stupid things? It doesn’t really make much sense for me.
Even because he doesn’t deserve to fight for the title. He has no record for that. Also, because, man, he was out because USADA took him out. Not because he wants. USADA took him out and now he’s gonna come back and fight for the title.
If MMA is a sport, a real sport, it doesn’t make any sense. But like I said, if people want to see that, we have to give it to them.”
