Coach: Brock at full potential for the first time
GRACIEMAG.com got on the phone with Brock Lesnar’s Jiu-Jitsu coach, Rodrigo Medeiros. Between training sessions with the former UFC Heavyweight champion, Comprido discussed Brock’s state of preparation for the fight vs. former Strikeforce Heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 on Friday December 30, 2011.
“Brock is in great shape. Undergoing surgery was the best decision he could have made. I believe we’ll be seeing Brock at full potential for the first time,” Comprido told reporter Nalty Junior.
“I’m truly excited about this fight. They’re two giants, two monsters on a collision course—I don’t think I’ve ever seen two guys as big and skillful as they are. If Alistair isn’t 100%, he’d best not show up, because Brock is super well prepared; I guarantee it.”
