Brock Lesnar to work Velasquez vs. JDS fight as FOX analystPosted on November 9, 2011, 07:59 PM by Trent Reinsmith
One word that’s often used to describe Brock Lesnar is recluse. The fact of the matter is that Lesnar is not a recluse; he’s just a guy that’s found comfort in familiar surroundings and people. If he truly were a recluse he wouldn’t be attending the UFC on FOX event on Saturday night and he surely wouldn’t be joining the broadcast team that will analyze the main event between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.
UFC President Dana White, speaking on a media conference call on Wednesday said, “This is focused on the heavyweights and the heavyweight championship fight on Saturday night between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos. We're going to be talking about Alistair Overeem and Brock Lesnar. Overeem will be there, and Brock Lesnar is actually going to be one of the analysts on the show, breaking down the fight. He [defended the title] against Cain Velasquez, and he was supposed to fight Junior dos Santos, so his opinion is interesting.” – for more see Sherdog.com.
Lesnar is the last fighter to face Cain Velasquez, losing his UFC heavyweight title to Velasquez via TKO on October 23 of last year. Following that bout he coached opposite dos Santos on season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter. Lesnar was scheduled to meet dos Santos at the conclusion of the season, but he was knocked out of commission by a second bout of diverticulitis, which required surgery.
