Interesting, I'd be curious to see how he does.

He looked like he had some promise right up unitl he got knocked the f*ck out. I thought the whole show was a little disappointing. Lesnar pounded the snot out of some stand in. The only fight that looked good was the Gracie v. Sakura fight and it looked like it needed to go longer.

Oh well...

I heard he wants to fight Matt Millen. Being a Lions fan, this made me very excited.

I've heard a little bit of rumbling about this from MMA fighters who are upset that he got paid way way way more than they ever will.

Well, they don't have to worry too much. He's not receiving any of his money for the bout since he's refusing to take his mandatory post-fight drug test.
