Back when Brock Lesnar first entered MMA he countered a lot of the unworthy n00b accusations by filling his gym with a who’s who of coaching staff and training partners. While you can’t really beat having guys like Greg Nelson and Erik Paulson teach you, I wasn’t quite buying Lesnar as a patient sponge willing to take his lumps while learning his trade. Nik Lentz’s tale fits much better into my pre-conceived notions of what training with Drooly McPenis Sword would be like:
“I did roll with him one time and number one, it was really gross because the dude sweats like a ridiculous amount so I was just covered in Brock Lesnar sweat, like just dripping in his own sweat but then he was kinda messing around and I jumped on a guillotine and I wound up eventually tapping him out and then he actually got kinda angry and the next time that we started, he just picked me up above his head WWE-style and like threw me across the room so that was the end of my training with Brock. I got him one time. I jumped on the guillotine because he wasn’t ready for it and I choked him out and then after that I got thrown across the room.”
Yep, sounds about right.
