Brock Lesnar makes more money in one fight than most UFC fans make in a lifetime in their 9 to 5 jobs. There is definitely a jealousy factor in all of the Lesnar hating out there because they think he is "overpaid".

Brock deserves to get paid millions because he is big time draw for the UFC who puts the butts in the seats and sells ppvs. That is how capitalism works.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.
Part of the reason he sells PPVs is because of the fact that people hate him... I personally would love to see him lose... Just because you are on TV doesn't mean people are obligated to like you...

Look at GSP that guy is near impossible to not like... He has tons of talent, heart and he is still humble... In my opinion he is a true champion...

Flipping off the fans is one thing because they were booing him but how do you explain crapping on the UFCs biggest sponsor? Dana wasn't too happy about that...

What about getting in Mir's face after he had just beaten him down? Its not the street and its not WWE that was just completely unprofessional...

Brock Lesnar acts like a child...

A "child" that could wipe the floor with 99.99% of the adult male population in the world in a 1 on 1 fight.

IMHO Anderson Silva, and GSP are the most skilled fighters in MMA right now, which to me means all time. These two are amazing fighters, and it is silly how they can make otherwise great fighters look like some bum off the street. Also, as much as I want to not like either one, they make it very hard to, by acting very professional, and having great sportsmanship toward other fighters.

i agree they are the most skilled at the moment, as for being professional and good sportsmen i dont agree at all. in the past yes, over the last yr or 2 no way. i mean anderson was CLOWNING in his last 3-4 fights and it is only getting worse. listen to his post fight commentary and things, he is not the same guy. and GSP is not far behind him.

Firstly, his name is Royce Gracie! Secondly, he has no stand up... he'd get owned by most of today's top level fighters. For example... and I know there was a bit of an age difference... but Matt Hughes whipped him in 2006 at UFC 60. Gracie without a doubt was one of the most influential fighters in MMA history... but I don't think he was the best fighter of all time.
