    playday

  2. danielrchargers says:

    thank god, i thought i was banned.
    i mean im only rude when i see Jon Jones.

  3. Thurgood Jenkins says:

    Since Lesnar showed a guy from WWE can have success in MMA, I wonder if others will follow suit and transition to the UFC anytime soon.

    • Killer B says:

      What success did he have? He did well for a minute because he was big and strong. THAT IS IT. These WWE posers are athletes, no doubt, but they are not fighters. It didn’t take long for real fighters to get Brock’s number and crush the myth before it became a legend. He was smart to go back to the WWE before he really got hurt. I like The Rock. He was real about the whole thing. He says he considers himself a bad ass, but he also said the heavy weights in the UFC would destroy him.

      • Shawn says:

        True. But at least he went for it, and had some success. You can’t take that away from him. He beat 3 legit guys. And two were former champions. Not many can say the same, especially people on message boards. ;-) But then again, most people here don’t train. Cuz if they did, they wouldn’t be talking smack.

      • Uncle Chael says:

        Let’s not forget he started training for mma in a very late phase of his life. Maybe he would of been able to pull it off back in the day when competition was not that great, but now these guys are way too talented. I still think that despite everything, he was pretty damn successful. I mean, there are not a lot of guys who could make the switch he made. If he would of started training mma straight out of college, he would of dominated for a much longer time. No doubt about it.

        • Carlos says:

          dude when i saw ur name was uncle chael i was cracking up cuz when im reading what your writing it sounds like something chael would actually say

      • Thurgood Jenkins says:

        Well, he won the belt relatively early in his MMA career. I’m not saying he necessarily deserved a title shot considering he lost to Mir and then beat Herring. But he held a belt in the most prominent MMA organization in the world. He defended it against a very tough guy in Carwin. And, oh yea, he made a shitload of money. I call that success.

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          Agreed! He did beat Mir in a rematch and although he lost to Cain and Overeem. All three of these opponents are at the top of the division. He didn’t lose to scrubs and he made a ton of cash!

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      I think Batista fights in smaller promotions.

  4. Nick says:

    He’s making money. Can’t even hate.

  5. drew says:

    Lame. But w/e its his life hope he’s happy with the choice

  6. T.Daddy says:

    war brock all day everyday

  7. Oyston says:

    Lol leaves ufc an kops an acting job could be worse

  8. joshuah says:

    I hated Brock because he made MMA look weak coming in like a reverse Ken shamrock, but I grew to love the Guy cause of his interviews & the fact that he REALLY wanted to just be the best athlete he could be …. he was quoted as saying “I didn’t like the person I was when I was in the dub-ya dub-ya F” …. no hate for the Guy way to rake in that fat cash, but its disappointing after the things he has said in the past that he would return.

    ON A SIDE NOTE

    He looked TINY …. well tiny for Brock anyway

  9. Rob says:

    So he retires from the UFC for his health, and goes back to professional wrestling.

    Nope, no injuries there.

    • Scotty says:

      I think he would sustain more injury in MMA if he kept going.. Look what Overeem did with one kick to the Stomach.. He got exposed on his stand up, he even tried to bring in Pat Barry to help him with it but just couldnt get it.. All the top guys in the UFC now, have great stand up (JDS, Overeem, Cain, even Mir now).. I think he just realized, his wrestling and size wasnt going to matter anymore.. So he had to retire after taking that punishment from Overeem.. He is in the right place in the WWE, i think!

      • Rob says:

        I don’t know man, look at guys like Steve Austin. Broken neck, wobbles around on two knee braces, not to mention the painkiller addictions…

        • Scotty says:

          Yeah those things MAY occur but might not.. In MMA, Brock is going to get punched, kicked, kneed and everything else.. Look what Overeem did in just one fight and look what Cain did to his face.. Not to mention, Carwin was smashing him for a whole round.. His last few fights, he was taking a beating and he wasnt getting any better in his stand up.. Only thing i could see happening is if the UFC put him up against a non striker if Brock continued to fight..

    • Sofaking Good says:

      Brock left the UFC cause he could not win at the top level. His lack of MMA skills were exposed, and he is now raking in the easy cash. Injuries in the WWE, sure. BUT, your not getting your face smashed in, or limb snapped. Good for Brock though, he gave the UFC a try, had some success, kept his dignity and reputation for a return to the WWE.

  10. dave says:

    he will still be cashing in the money. i am a fan of ufc and wwe he will how ever get less injuries in wwe. im kinda split on this one. its not like its someone who as been with wwe for 20 yrs then decides to make the change and decides that they cant hack it and comes back to wwe, brock was successful in both.

  11. donjuan says:

    at least now he can win some fights lol

  12. Miesha Tate's arm says:

    The top earner for the UFC is back where he belongs

  13. Xaninho says:

    I still don’t understand why this thing attracts a full stadium and gets people on their seats….Don’t they know it’s fake? smh…

    • K2 says:

      It’s fake violence for kids and people with the intelligence of kids, e.g. rednecks.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      Its a soap opera for manly men! I watch when nothing else is on television.

      • MARK says:

        @Xaninho everybody knows that wwe is fake, People wants to watch it bec. they want entertainment just like movies, movies are fake and people is always watching movies.

        • Dick Diaz says:

          +1
          and some people appreciate some of the spectacles that Pro Wreslting has to offer.

      • Xaninho says:

        I rather put on my Xbox and play UFC3 when nothing else is on television ;)

        This WWE thing is like really bad acting in a high school musical..At least when I watch a movie for the time being I almost forget it’s a movie, this WWE is painfully clear fake.

        I dunno maybe it’s something you had to grow up with to appreciate.

  14. People can talk all the shit yall want this dude is a warrior name any UFC besides Rampage and a few other fighters would fight under the risks he took the guy the fights that he did lost even Dana White was surprised that he took them under the circumstances that he took them and I bet anyone on here commenting negatively could hold a match yeah i said match cause candle isnt even possible to what he did why he was there if he was 100% healthy he would have pummeled Cain when he took him to the ground and the reason he went all out so fast cause he knew that his body was falling apart after a surgery that would have sidelined any normal person for a year or more.

  15. dougie says:

    it seems like brock got even more respect from other wrestlers for being a former ufc heavyweight champ.

  16. Big G says:

    Ok, so what i don’t understand is, I know he retired from UFC, did Dana let him out of his contract tho? Cause until you finish your contract, i thought Dana said he (Brock) couldn’t wrestle for the WWE. Retiring doesn’t let you out of the contract, unless they put something in it that say’s different.

    • Scotty says:

      Dana said Brock could do whatever he wanted now.. Dana soaked alot out of Brock and i feel he wanted to test a theory in the Overeem fight.. i think Dana wanted to see if Brock really was a fighter by putting him up against a striker.. But he also wanted to see if Overeem was a top MMA fighter and put him against a monster with amazing wrestling.. But once Overeem, just handled Brock, i think Dana knew Brocks days in MMA were over and he would never be a complete fighter.. So he let him retire and go back to WWE to make so more cash! Cause really the UFC got alot of money from Brock…

    • Anomander says:

      I’m pretty sure I read somewhere (probably here) that Dana in an interview wished him good luck with his WWE return, so it would seem either his contract was terminated on retirement or Dana is happy to let him out of it.

      As for Brock, if he can get some kind of career out of going back, good for him. I never liked the guy at first but the more fights he had in the UFC the more he came across as a genuine guy and it felt like he stopped playing some kind of character as if he was still in Wrestling. The interviews after the Cain and Overeem fights especially showed a humble side to him I never expected.

      He can hold his head up over his time in the UFC. Was he good enough to hang with the likes of Velzquez, JDS and Overeem? Probably not after his injuries and his still evolving standup, but he was no chump who spent his entire UFC career as anyones bitch either. The guy had balls too you have to give him that.

      • Big G says:

        Ya, more power to the guy for going back to the WWE. Money is money, i was just curious cause the last interview i’d seen about Brock, was when he was doing the video game and they’d asked if Dana would ever let him wrestle and basically said not while under our contract.

        Typically when you retire, you still belong to whoever the contract is from, unless they’d let him out. And i’m sure Dana prefer’s to let him go back to Vince. Maybe someday they’ll get another super star ;)

  17. Jammy says:

    Heard John Cena was going to try his hand in UFC along with the Undertaker. The Undertaker already wears the MMA gloves
