Another day, another beef between MMA fighters and WWE wrestlers. This seems one-sided and started with a UFC fighter mouthing off, but then again, isn’t that how all these stories begin?
This time it’s not CM Punk that’s the focus of the rage but current WWE Champion and former UFC competitor Brock Lesnar. Brendan Schaub, a former top ten finalist on The Ultimate Fighter, was on the Jason Ellis Show on Sirius/XM.
Lesnar is considering a return to the UFC after his contract runs out in March and the host brought up the name of Brock Lesnar (because he’s smart and knows it will stir shit and make for good radio) and Schaub took the bait. Schaub said he would welcome Brock back to the UFC with a severe beating that would send “The Beast Incarnate” back to the world of wrestling.
“Doing fake wrestling is not the same as being in the UFC. You’re playing grab ass,” Schaub said. “You know if you’re going to win or lose. Yeah, it’s hard on your body. Great. He hasn’t been competing and training like I have. If he comes back to the UFC, I would 100 percent send him packing back to the fake wrestling.”
Schaub was sure to say nice things about Lesnar though, just in case he runs into him in an airport or his nightmares.
“I think what he does, he’ll still be very successful because he’s so damn big and a really talented wrestler,” Schaub argued. “There’s just not that many big, explosive guys who are athletic like he is. So, he’s always going to be successful.”
