Default Brock: Nobody is taking my belt

The last line is classic!


Brock: Nobody is taking my belt


Published: 17 Jun 2009

BROCK LESNAR claims none of the other heavyweights in the UFC will threaten his title reign.

The champion squares off against interim titleholder Frank Mir in a unification bout on July 11 that will headline UFC 100.

But the former WWE star insists he is not worried by the threat any of his rivals pose to him holding on to the gold.

He said: "I watch the other heavyweights and I don't feel threatened by any of them.

"It doesn't mean jack s*** to me. I just want to win fights and make as much money as I can.

"It's all part of the plan and it's a dream come true. I'm not getting caught up in la-la land. I'm keeping everything in perspective and keeping it real.

"But even though I've got the belt, I can still become a better fighter. It poses a whole other threat now, with people gunning for you and not just me trying to climb the ladder."

The 31-year-old is famed for his competitive nature and outstanding wrestling ability - but he admits he is in this business purely for money.

He added: "I've had plenty of jobs to put food on the table. I grew up on a farm in South Dakota so I'm no stranger to hard work.

"But you have to make money. If there wasn't a prize or a guy couldn't make a living out of this I highly doubt that anybody would fight.

"Put it this way, guys play golf for recreation. You don't fight and get bloody noses and black eyes for fun. I'm a grown man and I have to make a living out of this."
