Some people have said that Lesnar looked defeated and couldn't wait to get done with the fight. Lawal saw some tendencies to that and feels that Lesnar got too much, too fast.
"I think he was nervous," Lawal said. Then he tried to hype the crowd up by singing/rapping to a song and then when it was over he went into the cage and that's when looked defeated when he stepped into the cage. I think Brock got pushed too fast, too soon to his career and probably because he makes a lot of money. If they woulda built him on right, he could have been a great heavyweight fighter. I think he helped save the UFC and make them more marketable because he has such a big following.
Lawal definitely feels that was the case and has strong feelings on why people feel like Lesnar didn't like to get hit.
"I think so," Lawal said. "But at the same time, I think he knew that he was getting paid a lot and they (UFC) had to rush him. Personally, I heard he was running his own show. I think maybe in training he got hit and didn't like it and they (training staff) modified things, so he wouldn't have to get hit. He never got adjusted to getting hit. No one likes to getting hit, but after awhile you tolerate it. You don't think nothing of it."
