I didn’t have any respect for Randy [Couture], I didn’t have any respect for Heath [Herring], I don’t have any respect for Frank.

This is obviously a fake interview.
Someone is just trying to slander Brock.

Why do you believe everything you read? Just because someone says Brock said it, and because they put a picture of Brock above the supposed quote, it means Brock actually said it? I don't think so.
Show me a video of those words coming straight out of his mouth and i'll believe it.

Oh right, Chances of it being fake are none... because you said so.

It's Fake. Get over it. Brock is a much more humble guy than this and has admitted respect for his opponents in the past. Why would he change stories now?

No it's fake because it contradicts statements Brock has made in the past.
Plus it's classic fake interview material. The whole article was designed to slander Brock. There was absolutely no proof Brock said it.
Anyone could have written that and claimed it came from Brock.
If you find a video of Brock saying it, then I'll believe it.

I don't know about the article but he said pretty much the same thing in the UFC 100 countdown show on Spike, he used pretty much the same language.

Brock is not the most intellectually gifted fighter out there, clearly he has an idea he's trying to express, but I don't think he's doing it very well.

If I had to guess, he's probably trying to say that he goes into each fight looking at the opponent as an enemy to do battle with, rather than some mushy-eastern-respect-the-warrior-in-him-and-you-respect-yourself approach.

The person who put it up is a journalist. The chances he's publishing fake articles on a real news site are slim to none, since using quotations pulled from Lesnar could cost him a job (and more).

My anti-Lesnar biases are enhanced every time the guy speaks.

Exactly. He said "I've never respected an opponent" on the Countdown.

Loosen the grip on his nuts, bro!

What happens every time a news source quotes a fighter with one sentence? This happens. This is taken completely out of context. There is a reason why there is only one sentence...because it's more newsworthy that way.

It's not a literal statement...it's just the mindset that he's in when he goes into a fight. It's no different than when Nick Diaz says he hates his opponent before a fight, because there's plenty of time for respect after the fight. It's just the mind-set that some fighters put themselves in leading up to a fight.

Spike was running the UFC 100 show and he said it on there. It wasn't dubbed. Brock says he has no respect for anyone he's fighting

Yeah Misterfreeze clearly didn't catch the UFC 100 countdown. I'm suprised that he hasn't seen it either, for somebody on Brock's nuts so hard I'm shocked that he missed it.

When I saw him say that he had no respect on the countdown show, it seemed to me like he meant that he didn't come into fights overly respecting his opponents to inhibit his behavior, i.e. GSP Vs. Hughes first fight.

That's how it came across to me.

No, he really doesn't have an ounce of respect for them. I just watched the UFC 100 press conference and he said it again there, except this time he went into further detail. Brock said he has zero respect for his opponents because in the past when he has respected his opponents he hasn't performed as well. This goes back to his wrestling days.

i have SEEN Brock interviews many times, and he has said he has a tremendous amount of respect for Mir, Coture, other fighters etc.....i think he was trying to express that he doesnt respect the fighter when its time to fight.

Ok Ok, I know how to Admit when i'm wrong!
You guys got me. He said it on video.
And RNC, i'm not really on Brocks nuts that hard, I was just trying to point out that people shouldn't believe everything they read.
I said I would believe it with video proof and you guys presented that to me. Fair enough!

How many of you thought of this thread when Lesnar acted like a d*** after UFC100?

...lol..I know he apologized, but I'm quite certain we'll be having this lack-of-respect discussion again in the near future.

I immediately thought ot his.

But...his apology means jack in my book. He only apologized because he was told to do so. At the same time...I'm okay with what he did. It'll just make it that much sweeter when he does get beat.
