If you need some tips on your future, apparently the best person to talk to is nicknamed "Big Country." Way back on January 21st, UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson was asked about Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos facing off in June. Here's what Nostradamus had to say:

"I think Brock Lesnar is done," Nelson said. "I think Brock doing TUF is one way to basically take a situation and make it win-win for him. I think Lesnar doing the show is a way to introduce Junior Dos Santos to the American fan base in the way the show does. TUF introduces "stars in the making" to the casual UFC fan and while JDS is the number one contender he still needs some help with the American fan base. So the conspiracy basically comes down to the fact that Shane Carwin has no one to fight in June. I think Brock Lesnar will walk off the TUF set and then Carwin will take his spot or Frank Mir will come in to "save the day" and fight JDS for title contention. The reason I believe Frank would be the guy is because Mir is coming off a win and I was already supposed to fight Shane so fans were already hyped to see it. Or Carwin could move in to face JDS and I could still face Frank but it doesn't really matter to me as to who fights who because all that really matters is the fans want to see me fight somebody. A lot of things could happen over the next six weeks but it seems a bit off that Carwin doesn't have an opponent right now and all of the top heavyweights are spoken for."

If we were doing Playground scoring, I'd say he gets 5 points. He picked it, just not the right round or method of finish

Lol, well well Nelson. He called it pretty close. I personally hope Lesnar fights again. If not though at least he can say he held a ufc title and defended it. Not many people can say that.

True! And in so few fights he accomplished a lot. He defended his title several times successfully, tied the Heavyweight record I believe for most title defenses.... Nothing to sneeze at! I hope he comes back to the octagon strong. If nothing else though, I hope he gets his health back and can at least enjoy the rest of his life.

Their's been so many rumors about Brock wanting out that it don't suprise me.
I would say a lot of "insider" talk gets spread around pretty fast in the world of the UFC.
