MMAMania recently reported that Fighter Mag sat down with Xtreme Couture fighter Jay Hieron, who revealed what it was like when Lesnar was training with the Las Vegas based team during the filming of season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter.
"The guy is just a whole different animal.
"It was his first time back to training since the Cain fight and he was just under 300-pounds. It was something different and we never had a beast quite like that at our gym.
"It mostly consisted of BJJ and wrestling. A lot of rolling. He also helped some of us in the wrestling department. He did some sparring with Randy.
"You do not realize how strong he is and how fast he is unless you are there training or fighting him. I fight at 170 and I'll be the first to tell you that he was much faster than I was. It's shocking actually - the way he was just throwing guys around.
"Couture had him go through rounds of rolling. One person would step in, roll with Brock for 2 minutes then step out and someone else would go in. Forrest Griffin was there, Vitor was there, I was there, Sefo was there. We had a bunch of guys.
"He was incredibly strong, we would just go in there and get submitted a couple times and get out. He caught Forrest in the same straight armbar three times in the two minutes they were rolling. The only one he didn't tap out was Vinny [Magalhaes] but it was more of the same.
"I don't think anyone was able to get top position without him giving it up. It was a fun experience."

However, Vinny Magalhaes came on the Underground and cast doubt on the account:
Never even met Brock.

The only time I saw Brock in person was backstage when he was getting ready for the weigh ins for his second fight against Frank.
I'm not sure if was really Jay who said those things in that interview, but I don't think Brock would sub Forrest, at least not 2x in the same move like it was said. Also, I haven't seen Forrest at XC since he was getting ready for his last fight, so I was wondering when this "supposedly" happened.
