Tim Hague On Training With Brock Lesnar: ‘He Is Scary Strong, Scary Conditioned’

“Was pretty surreal. Best training, and best group of guys I’ve ever trained with. WAR LESNAR. Because I need to get better at everything, and being able to work with Pat Barry and Cole Konrad one-on-one was unreal. Working MMA with Brock and five other legit UFC level HW’s every day is something I don’t get up in Edmonton. I’m not gonna give away any of his strategy, but he is scary strong, and scary conditioned, and if he gets the jump on a takedown, you’re going down, or you’re blowing out a knee or something haha. I just went there for a week to be a [heavyweight] dummy for Brock and the guys, I was slightly outta shape, but know what I have to do to be better next time. I wasn’t paid or nothing, didn’t ask to be and felt like I should have paid them to be there. I don’t know who’s better (Lesnar or Konrad), they both made me their bitch on the mats, and Cole’s boxing is great as well. I got invited back for a full camp, and I’m chomping at the bit to make that happen.”

— Tim Hague on The UG (via MMA Mania) talking about training with Brock Lesnar

We haven’t heard much about Brock Lesnar’s UFC 141 training camp, but what we have heard has all been good. Brock swears he’s healthy, his jiu-jitsu coach says he’s finally reaching his “full potential,” his wrestling coach says there’s “something different in the air” like there was before Lesnar-Mir 2 and here’s Tim Hague depicting a “scary” version of Brock Lesnar in camp.

It all sounds good, but we should we buy it? After all, coaches and teammates rarely give anything but glowing praise before a fight. We usually don’t hear about how camp really went until after.
