Brock Lesnar Talks TUF 13: Junior dos Santos Is "in My Way"

"It’s thirty below zero in Alexandria right now. I had enough of the ice fishing and trouncing around in the snow. Dana did all the right things for us to be here. Is Las Vegas a place I’d want to be? No. There are other warm places I can think of. But it’s not painful. Talk to me in five weeks and we’ll see. But right now, I’d have to say that it’s pretty accommodating."

"I was the UFC heavyweight champion. What other qualifications do you need? You guys can sit there and discredit me, but in my mind, I’ve got just as many fights as Junior. I’ve got a great coaching staff (Marty Morgan, Erik Paulson and Rodrigo "Comprido" Medeiros), guys that have been coaching top fighters and wrestlers. I’ve got faith in my people. These guys made me a champion, so why can’t we make this eager young kids into champions? I think we can."

"I’m here to train and I’m here to make these guys better. Junior dos Santos is a roadblock on the way to me getting my title back, and that’s it. I have no beef with Junior. He’s a nice kid. He’s just in my way, and I’m gonna do what I can to get him out of the way."
