Paul Heyman Talks Up Brock Lesnar; Josh Barnett Responds Emphatically


Brock Lesnar’s on-screen manager, Paul Heyman is known as the “Mouth Piece of the Beast” and now he’s taken his uncanny skills of promoting to a new level by making some pretty broad statements about his “client”

“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,” Paul Heyman, Lesnar’s longtime friend and on-air WWE advocate, told FOX Sports recently. “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.”

With every action there is always a reaction.

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion and the equally outspoken Josh Barnett took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the bold views of one, Mr. Heyman.


As if you expected anything different from Josh Barnett?

Who in his own right should try his hand in wrestling as well.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
