UFC 100: Dana White Chews Out Brock Lesnar Backstage

Tim ListAnalyst IJuly 12, 2009

Dana White ripped into Brock Lesnar backstage following Lesnar's explosion in the Octagon after crushing Frank Mir and winning the UFC Undisputed Heavyweight Championship.

MMA NEWS DESK is reporting that during the post-fight press conference, White stated, "I was blown away. I don't think in the history of the UFC we've ever had someone do something like that. It's not who we are and it's not who he is. I've spent time with the guy. He gets in there and the adrenaline starts kicking and the mouth starts moving, but the brain isn't sending anything to his mouth. If he was a [bad guy], I would tell you, but he's not. He's a smart guy. He's been in the WWE so long that he thinks he has to jump in there and be the heel."

Lesnar, who came to the post fight conference with a Bud Light in his hand, stated, "I was in the entertainment business for a while and I guess there's still a little bit of that in me. I get asked if there's anything I could drag over from the WWE and I guess you saw a little bit tonight. I'm used to selling pay-per-views and tickets."
