Shane Carwin Not Happy With Brock Lesnar’s Antics

Posted by Gene Morris on July 14, 2009

Shane Carwin, one of the few heavyweights in the UFC who can match Brock Lesnar’s size and power, was not at all pleased with Brock’s antics after the UFC 100 main event.

Carwin wrote on his blog , Shane-Carwin.com, about the overall event Saturday, and had some harsh words for the champ.

The flipping off of the fans that just lined your pocket with millions of dollars is just LAME. He may be a Champion but he has a long ways to go before he earns the respect of a Champion. The fans are why we do this Brock, this sport is not about fat paychecks and drama it is about hard work and sacrifice for a shot to do what you did last night. It doesn’t matter how much money you make if you can’t earn your peers respect and the respect and love of the greatest sporting fans in the world. We have no scripts in this sport, no pre-determined earning amount and no pre-determined outcomes. It doesn’t matter if you win or loose it matters how you win or loose. (sic)

Just reading that and imagining Brock’s reaction makes me excited.  No offense to Cain Velasquez, another impressive contender that will meet Carwin at UFC 104 in October to determine the #1 contender to Lesnar’s belt, but I REALLY hope Carwin wins and these two monsters can square off in the cage.

So yes, it’s refreshing to see St.-Pierre show his opponents tons of respect, wreck them for five rounds, then respect them after, this trash talking thing is a lot of fun.

You can also see White discussing his reactions to Lesnar’s antics with ESPN’s first take here.

Below is Lesnar’s apology at the press conference after the event.  Notice the bottle of Bud Light sitting in front of him.
