Yea, Brock's an idiot for making up this story about Canada's health system. He's a liar, and not a very good one. When pressed, he tends to back-peddle and all-but-admit that he lied.
The last paragraph, he admits he just wanted to be in the USA for treatment.

I know people are tossing rumors around that Lesnar faked it to get out of fighting Carwin, and ordinarily I'd just roll my eyes and call it garbage. But Lesnar sure as hell isn't helping his case on that front in that interview. I can believe that he was in the hospital with a serious infection. I have a really hard time believing that this devastating illness that could have required life-changing surgery was just gone with absolutely no trace of ever being there. He sounds like a high schooler who faked sick to get out of taking a test. "Yeah, mom, I know the thermometer said 103 degrees this morning *coughcoughiranitunderhotwaterhackhack*, but I'm really feeling better, must have been some kind of 12 hour bug, so I think I'm gonna go out to that concert tonight."
Eh. At the end of the day, regardless of how true it all is, all the talk is probably just a bunch of nonsense to get more PPV buys.

It didn't magically go away. He changed his diet and took antibiotics. From what I read, a whole lot of antibiotics.

Could his haircut be any more ridiculous?
Draven, how many sub attempts did Monson make in that fight? Also, one of those 4 submissions was by Arlovski who's only had three submissions ever. Now, granted, he's a good grappler, but hardly top tier.Originally Posted by Sarcastro

Regardless of Mir's mindset and his weight gains, I just don't think he can stand up to Lesnar's power.
Let's assume Mir and Lesnar happens: How does Mir train to fight against Lesnar? Maybe he could work submissions on a bull? Or he could practice getting hit in the face with cement-filled lunchboxes?
There are lots of guys Lesnar can train with given that the only thing he really needs to focus on to fight Mir is avoiding submissions. I think Lesnar's sheer size, speed, takedown power and strength combination effectively eliminates a standup battle. Mir certainly can't out-wrestle Lesnar.
For me the hope that Mir will reach out from under the barrage of blows and pull out a miracle sub just isn't enough to create interest. I'd rather see Lesnar fight anyone other than Mir at the moment.
