Nik "The Carny" Lentz is nowhere near being a heavyweight, but according to a recent interview with MMAmania.com, the 27-year-old claims to have gotten the better of former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in training.
"I did roll with him one time and number one, it was really gross because the dude sweats like a ridiculous amount so I was just covered in Brock Lesnar sweat, like just dripping in his own sweat but then he was kinda messing around and I jumped on a guillotine and I wound up eventually tapping him out and then he actually got kinda angry and the next time that we started, he just picked me up above his head WWE-style and like threw me across the room so that was the end of my training with Brock. I got him one time. I jumped on the guillotine because he wasn't ready for it and I choked him out and then after that I got thrown across the room."
The former NCAA Division I wrestler currently fights in the UFC's lightweight division and is undefeated at 5-0-1 in the organization. His last fight versus Charles Oliveira was originally ruled as a submission loss, but was later overturned due to Oliveira using an illegal knee to stun his opponent before the submission was applied.
Both Lentz and Lesnar trained out of Minnesota's "The Academy" and under trainer Greg Nelson. Lentz is currently scheduled to face Mark Bocek, who is considered one of the top grapplers in the division, at UFC 140.
Lesnar is set to return for the first time since losing his title later this month at UFC 141 against Alistair Overeem.
