Lesnar spoke to the UK Sun this week and gave some insight into his thoughts about UFC's heavyweight division as well as his surprising motivation for fighting.
Lesnar said, "I watch the other heavyweights and I don't feel threatened by any of them. It doesn't mean jack s*** to me. I just want to win fights and make as much money as I can."
Despite his success thus far in the UFC, he's doing what he can to make sure his priorities are in check. "It's all part of the plan and it's a dream come true. I'm not getting caught up in la-la land. I'm keeping everything in perspective and keeping it real. But even though I've got the belt, I can still become a better fighter. It poses a whole other threat now, with people gunning for you and not just me trying to climb the ladder."
Lesnar once again emphasized that as much as he enjoys the thrill of competition, at the end of the day, it's still just a way to earn a paycheck. "I've had plenty of jobs to put food on the table. I grew up on a farm in South Dakota so I'm no stranger to hard work. But you have to make money. If there wasn't a prize or a guy couldn't make a living out of this I highly doubt that anybody would fight. Put it this way, guys play golf for recreation. You don't fight and get bloody noses and black eyes for fun. I'm a grown man and I have to make a living out of this."
