Brock Lesnar will have his work cut out for him when he enters the ring to face The Undertaker at WWE’s SummerSlam this weekend.
Unfortunately, Ronda Rousey doesn’t know how Lesnar feels.
The reigning UFC women’s bantamweight champion hasn’t had much competition of late, dispatching the likes of Cat Zingano and Bethe Correia in mere seconds. In fact, Rousey has been so much better than everyone else that many are starting to wonder if anyone can challenge her for the belt.
Count Lesnar among that growing group. During a recent appearance on ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” the WWE star summed up Rousey’s dominance in the only way he knew how.
“I think she’s a super athlete in a weak division, I really do,” Lesnar said. “She is a man amongst women in the women’s division. I take my hat off to her.”
Lesnar was quick to praise Rousey for being so dominant while maintaining a busy lifestyle, but the fact remains the UFC’s women’s division needs to step up its game if it hopes to get anywhere close to Rousey’s level.
Cris “Cyborg” Justino appears to be the only fighter with an outside chance, but at 145 pounds, she’d need to drop 10 pounds to even step in the ring with the champ.
Lesnar had plenty more to say about Rousey and also discussed his upcoming SummerSlam showdown against The Undertaker. Check it out in the video below.
