"At any time it can be taken away from you. I don't take it for granted. I just want to be the greatest heavyweight of all time. And keeping whopping ass. And be the meanest son-of-a-bitch around" - Brock Lesnar

"I don't train to my strengths. I train to my weaknesses. What am I not good at? How can I get better?" - Brock Lesnar


"I don't worry about a guy like Brock Lesnar…I'm cautious…but know what you can do…know what you are capable of." - Cain Velasquez

"You are going to see Brock Lesnar get exposed for the first time. Here is somebody (Cain Velasquez) who is going to be a better wrestler...better striker...better ground guy…in better shape. And Brock is not going to have enough to deal with him." – Bob Cook (Cain’s Strategy coach at AKA)
