— Slam Wrestling is featuring an interview with Dan “The Beast” Severn, who talks about Brock Lesnar’s upcoming UFC Heavyweight title unification rematch with Frank Mir in July. Severn, another former UFC champion who also won gold in pro fessional wrestling, shared his thoughts on what Lesnar needs to do to defeat Frank Mir this time around. “Jiu Jitsu experts are lacking in the take-down area. If I were Brock, I would be just bludgeoning Mir in the first round, round and three quarters,” said Severn, who began his career in the fight game as a Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestler. “I would be hitting him with striking combos, forearm shivers, throw up a knee — wham, wham, bam! — splitting open an eye, breaking him down and taking a physical toll. Then in the final minute, if things are going his way, knock him on his can and take him down.” The article also includes quotes from Kurt Angle, John Cena, Paul Heyman and Bret Hart, many of whom rave about Lesnar’s incredible natural ability and his unstoppable work ethic.
