Mixed martial arts gets it’s fair share of conspiracy theories every year, but they usually originate from fans on message boards, not fighter interviews. I guess this is the exception to the rule. Roy Nelson tells MMA30’s Dave Farra that he thinks Brock Lesnar is going to walk out on TUF 13 like Tito Ortiz did which will start a domino effect that will result in him fighting Shane Carwin in June. Transcribed via BE:
“This is a conspiracy theory; this is just me talking out of my butt. Shane Carwin has nobody to fight. We got Frank Mir fighting supposedly me. Then you have (Junior dos Santos) fighting Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar doesn’t really want to fight because I was supposed to fight him; he wanted to fight me, that’s not going to happen.
“So I see Brock walking out like Tito did in the show, he goes to Wrestlemania. Then who does JDS have to fight? I think Frank will probably jump over there because he’s coming off a win and I’ll probably get Shane Carwin.”
“Doesn’t it sound f*cking exciting? I’m just helping sell the tickets.”
I’m gonna go out on a limb and predict none of that happens.
