Heyman: ‘A 100% Lesnar Would Have Been Untouchable’
“I think with all due respect to the rest of the division, I think Cain Velasquez is by far the most dominant heavyweight in UFC today. As a champion, I think he’s a noteworthy champion because I think he’s going to clean out the entire division. That being said, Cain Velasquez stepped in the cage with Junior Dos Santos when Cain wasn’t at 100 percent and he got knocked out in under 90 seconds. If that’s not a demonstration of what happens when you enter the Octagon at less than 100 percent, I don’t know what is. Brock Lesnar entered the Octagon against these people, Shane Carwin, even against Randy Couture, against Frank Mir, against Alistair Overeem, against Cain Velasquez at far less than 100 percent.
“Anything you saw him do, he did as an unhealthy man competing at the very top level on the face of the planet. Imagine what he could have done if he was 100-percent healthy.”
“If Brock Lesnar ever fought healthy in the UFC, I don’t see any fighter that could have touched him.”
In a recent interview with FOX Sports, Paul Heyman discussed the potential of a healthy Brock Lesnar inside the Octagon.
Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion, retired shortly after, what would be, a career ending bout with diverticulitis.
