Iâ€™ve sparred with him in real wrestling. Iâ€™m not going to tell you who won, Iâ€™ll say I was very happy with the outcome. But Iâ€™m a much more experienced wrestler. Brock Lesnar is the best athlete over 250 that Iâ€™ve ever seen in my life. He benches over 600 pounds, Iâ€™ve seen him squat over 1,000 pounds. This guy is an animal, so you canâ€™t say that he has no chance. He always has a chance and, you know what, he can take a punch. Of course, heâ€™s gotten knocked down and heâ€™s got knocked out, but he can take a punch. The guyâ€™s an animal, so he has a shot every time he goes out there and I wish him the best.”
