Not that it's a new take on the current champion of the women's 135 lb division, but Brock Lesnar was unabashed in his feelings that Ronda Rousey is way ahead of her class when it comes to competition for the strap. Lesnar recently appeared on ESPN's SportsCenter to promote his upcoming SummerSlam match with the Undertaker. While there, he was put to the question about Ronda Rousey's legacy and whether she needs a real challenge. But, Lesnar was all high praise instead (transcription via MMA Fighting):
"I think she's a super athlete in a weak division, I really do. I think she is a man amongst women in the women's division, and I take my hat off to her. She's doing an excellent job at what she's doing.
"I don't know how she's juggling everything -- movies and this, that and the other thing, going to Brazil and kicking butt over there and doing all the stuff she's doing. My hat's off to you, Ronda.
"I'm not taking any talent away from her at all, but I think she's a super beast, a super freak in the women's division."
Lesnar also talked about his love of farming, how the UFC shaped his legacy, and more. Check it out. SummerSlam takes place this Sunday at 7pm EST, 4 Pacific and will broadcast live on the WWE Network.
