Brock Lesnar, left, might be years removed from the WWE, but he still knows how to sell a show.
Humility is not a Brock Lesnar trademark. You get the sense that he always walked onto the football field or wrestling mat with the expectation he would be arrested for manslaughter.
"He's a tough guy. He's undefeated, but some of the guys he's beaten aren't worthy of having on your record," Lesnar said. "He hasn't fought anybody. He's fought [Gabriel] Gonzaga, so I really think he's 1-0."
Intriguing logic. Carwin's supporters might reply that victories over a 46-year-old Randy Couture and 3-6 Min Soo Kim don't exactly constitute the greater glory. But this is Lesnar's stock -- the ornery jock dismissive of anyone else's chances. The WWE stint may have been an athletic lowlight, but it taught him how to sell tickets.
