Ric Flair recently spoke with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani about a wide range of topics.
During it, he talked about former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.
“I have known some really tough guys over the years, wrestlers,” Flair said when talking about wrestlers doing MMA. “You probably remember… [inaudible], Kurt Angle, and the success that Brock has had. I think Bobby Lashley had a pretty good run with Bellator. I’ve got friends that have been in it and I’ve been around a lot.
“To see Brock go back & forth, and just be this phenomenal athlete. He may be the best athlete I’ve ever seen, if you look at it from our perspective. I’m not saying he’s better than Deion Sanders or better than Bo Jackson, but the way we measure things, you and I, there is no denying that Brock Lesnar is one of the best athletes of all-time. He almost made the Minnesota Vikings. I mean, come on.”
