Why Is Lesnar So Hated?

Brock Lesnar is a man that has been competing in MMA for the UFC a short time but has already won and defended his UFC heavyweight title. He did this rather easily both times. After his last fight against Frank Mir, a fight he won in dominating fashion, Lesnar was criticized for his post-fight "antics" and has been judged unfairly by the moral compasses of MMA. Randy Couture, Mike Swick and various internet writers and bloggers have vented their hatred of Lesnar into very disturbing comments and articles. I have to congratulate Steve Cofield and Dave Meltzer, both of Yahoo Sports, for their continued common sense opinions and articles of the alleged "antics" of Brock Lesnar. Earlier this week Jim Rome interviewed Lesnar and he basically apologized for what he said. I was disappointed he apologized, but Dana White probably ordered him to do it.

Basically, Lesnar is hated because he is a big, scary, dominant, trash-talking White man from Minnesota. He talks the talk and walks the walk. If you hate him, you better get over it. He is going to be the UFC champ for awhile.
