Guy who co-authored Brock Lesnar book says the big fella belongs in UFC Hall of Fame

Not that this is a scorching topic that keeps MMA fans up at night, but Paul Heyman, the guy who co-authored Brock’s autobiography,“Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination and Survival” says that Lesnar should be in the UFC Hall of Fame.  He recently spoke to MMAJunkie and had a lot to say about the topic:

“Of course he is [a UFC Hall of Famer].  Listen, here’s the thing, look at the three that he lost to, number one. Number two, what if Brock Lesnar did what everyone else did and said, ‘Feed me a guy every other month for three years so I’ll get six victories a year. I’ll be 18-0 before you put me in there with a Frank Mir, a former UFC heavyweight champion, or Randy Couture and the legends of legends in UFC.’ But he didn’t do that. He walked in and said give me your best.”

The man makes a decent point. Brock did come in basically off the street and win the UFC heavyweight championship. He beat three Top 10 opponents: Frank Mir, Randy Couture, and Shane Carwin. He single-handedly shattered every pay per view record. And he showed us that a big guy can have psycho-sexual anxiety too by tattooing a huge, unyielding phallus on his chest – pointing directly at his chin. I’m sure there’s some sort of Freudian explanation for that, but I’m not sure I want to know what it is.

So does Brock deserve to be in the UFC Hall of Fame? Sure, why not. It’s not like it’s a real HOF. It’s not the MMA HOF. Fedor will never be inducted because he never fought in the UFC. Frank Shamrock will never be admitted because Dana White is offended by his very existence, even though he was the UFC’s first dominant champion of the post-tournament era. As long as the UFC HOF remains a private club whose members are chosen by the UFC the concept of “deserving” isn’t really applicable.

    I’ve never cared for the UFC hall of fame. What the fuck does a hall of fame do anyway? Aren’t the people in there already famous? Is it a popularity contest? What is the criteria to get into the hall? Why isn’t it a room or a museum instead of a hall? Do you have to be retired? If so your not as famous as you once were. How about the UFC Museum of Really Good Has Been’s?

    It’s self glorifying and it’s making me feel old.

    hmm m Frank mir… a hasbeen who had fought 2 time in 2 years at the time, Randy Couture… old enough to be his dad, and Shane Carwin… had a neck more broken than fricks ass after a gay pride parade.

    I think the WWE Hall of Fame is closer to a legit HoF than the UFC’s.

    This is dumb.

    I’ve never seen a guy get pampered and set-up to win a championship like Brock Lesner.. yet the MMA media sells this guy as beating a “Killer’s Row” or whatever.

    Bullshit.

    Anytime he fought a good guy he got his ass beat. His only good fight was Mir II.

    I can’t believe I have to be the one saying this…but has there been another mma fighter to accomplish more in less than 10 fights in their career?

  • I’m a 13 year old !

    ^^
    Jones.

    Yes,
    he had more then 10 official fights.

    But how many SIGNIFICANT fights did it take after they threw him in the hot water!

    After he got access!

    Jones is a LEGIT CHAMP!

    And owes no brother walking the fucking earth a damn thing!

    BTW:

    THE BROCK RULES!!!!!

  • Blackula Jonez

    So…the question still stands. Who has done more with a career of less than 10 fights?

    Instead of leveraging his mma career to build himself as a fighter, he immediately went into the UFC after one pro fight.

    I still can’t believe I am here defending Brock Lesnar of all fighters…but when you remove your emotions and look at this honestly and logically. You have to admit the man accomplished very much with very little.

  • frickshun

    ^^I agree…..I guess. Only in the heavyweight division does this happen.
