On his latest edition of ‘Bischoff On Wrestling’, Eric Bischoff discussed rumours of a possible UFC return for Brock Lesnar. Below are highlights

On Brock Lesnar drawing power if he returns to the UFC:

“I don’t know how much of a draw Brock is going to be. You are kind of going back to the well to the guy whose last fight he beat Mark Hunt but he failed a drug test shortly thereafter. That’s not necessarily a stellar performance that people are going to be remembering very well when he comes back. Prior to that he didn’t really end his UFC career, or schedule, in any kind of blistering way. He got his ass handed to him. Brock is an amazing performer in the world of pro wrestling and sports entertainment. He’s an amazing athlete and I have nothing but respect for him. Take all of that out and just look objectively at his wins, his losses and what his track record has been in UFC. I’m just not sure that anybody could make a case that bringing Brock Lesnar back is going to provide some kind of massive financial infusion. It may. I hope for Brock’s sake it does. I just don’t think the track record says that it will.”

On the UFC’s struggle to create new stars:

“Fighters are so close competitively that nobody seems to hang on to a belt long enough for the world to get to know them. To cheer for them or want to see them get beat, whichever the case may be. You also have a pretty significant problem with guys who fight and win championships and fail drug tests the next day. Between the competitiveness between the athletes then throw on top of that the sustained challenge they’ve had over the years of guys failing drug tests. It’s no wonder they have a hard time building talent, honestly.”

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.
