Brock Lesnar is the perfect UFC heavyweight champion. His popularity is due in large part to his incredible size and speed, his WWE background and his charming personality. Something that goes under appreciated, and what makes Brock Lesnar so compelling among casual and die-hard MMA fans, is the quality of competition he continually faces and the vulnerability he has shown at every stage in his career.
He is the perfect villain, facing one tough “good guy” after another, looking beatable, and keeping his opponents hungry. To say that he will be beaten is a whole different story.
At UFC 121 Lesnar will square off with another world-class challenger in Cain Velasquez.
