Lesnar is 29. He has also said that he only wants to have 6 fights.
Needless to say, that's not a lot. He earned $500,000 for his last fight and he seems to want the big bucks, now Dana doesn't even pay that to some of his champions and no where near that amount for contenders. He is not going to splash down that much for a ex pro-wrestler for each fight. No way.

Also you have to question Lesnars heart.
He dreamt of taking part in the WWE, left it.
He wanted to play NFL, left it.
Wanted to take part in Japanese wrestling, left it.
Now wants to do MMA.......and says he only wants to take part in 6 fights.

I don't think he is seriously interested in even making a dent in the MMA scene.
Even Kimbo shows more signs of sticking with it than Brock.

Negative.He left the WWE because he burnt out quick and he fell out with Vince which is hardly suprising.He tried out for the Vikings but they cut him as he didnt make the grade..NJPW is no big deal.Its not a major league in wrestling and on a global scene doesnt really matter much.Brock wants to fight as his gifted and thats all his really good at (wrestling that is). If i was him id sign for TNA and call it a day as that would really piss Vince off.Who knows after his MMA career is done im pretty sure he`ll go back to pro wrestling as thats truly his bread and butter.His simply exploring his options which unfortunately as a pro wrestler are minimal.Being a great wrestler doesnt make him a great defensive end nor a great MMA artist.But with a name an rep like his at least he can live his dream.

I am interested in Lesnar in MMA, as he is a monster and could beat some good fighters by simply overpowering them.

But only wanting to fight for 6 fights makes me quetion his commitment to the sport.
Does he really want to be the best or is he in it for the money?

Lesnar wants to make bread.That im sure of.MMA is a new fad which he could be very good at.Depending on how succesful he is he may fight more fights he may not and get his ass handed to him Morton style.I guess well see what what the future holds.

Who ****ing knows. Let the man take his shot at glory, fame or money and assess him when we have something to talk about.

Fact is, it looks like he has some talent. He could earn a pretty penny fighting in setups. As it is he wants to get paid now for REAL fights. I give him props.
