“I remember I panicked when he stuck me against the cage (at UFC 100) and then I remember staring at Herb. I even made a joke like, â€˜I didnâ€™t get out, did I?â€™ When I saw Brock screaming and yelling at me I was confused because I was thinking, â€˜What happened from the time I blacked out and the time I woke up?’ When he got sick it screwed up my training because he was such a driving force for me. I went into a depression for two to three days where I didnâ€™t go to the gym, I got sick â€” I drove myself insane thinking we may possibly not fight again. I couldnâ€™t live with that.”â†µ
On one hand, maybe Frank is just trying to keep himself relevant by remaining tied to Lesnar so that win or lose there is always the rubber match to fall back on. On the other hand, maybe it would do Frank some good to focus on the task at hand. We’ll see where he’s at mentally when he takes on Cheick Kongo this Saturday at UFC 107.
