Default Happy Retirement Brock!

The whole WWE talk holds no substance with me. If you are belittling Brock Lesnar's short but packed MMA career then you kind of take a dig at Frank Mir, Randy Couture and Shane Carwin too. The guy defended his title twice, bought more awareness to the sport that we all love. Happy Retirement Brock Lesnar.

I was never a big fan of his but he has never had an easy fight. At least he defended the title something everyones OTHER "Baddest man on the Planet" Cain Velaquez couldn't do.

One of a kind.. Nobody will ever win The UFC championship with such little experience again.

He didn't have time to evolve, but won and defended the belt along the way.

I gotta agree as limited as he is, he spent more time fighting his illness than actually training to be a fighter and stil had success.

He started late, took on the best in the world with very little experience, took beatdowns had heath problems and still came back to take on the #2 ranked HW. He sure looked out of place his last 2 fights but he left in all the ring and went out on his sword.

I wish him the best as well. Brock did alot for the sport and did alot as a fighter. To win the Championship after just 3 fights is an amazing accomplishment and he backed up with 2 title defenses agianst strong oppostion. Brock did damn well if you ask me.

Deserves immense respect for stepping in with Overeem after everything that happened.
