    Default Dana White: 'Shaq wants to fight Brock Lesnar'

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/bal...urn=nba,176709

    Where does one go after dunking on a 13-ton shark? What's the next step after defeating Damon Jones with a plastic knife and killer dance moves? Well, if you're Shaquille O'Neal(notes) you challenge the UFC heavyweight champion of the world.

    UFC president Dana White joined "Into The Night with Tony Bruno" to discuss UFC 100's impressive ratings, the possibility of a Brock Lesnar-Fedor Emelianenko match, and the desire of The Big Diesel/Witness/Twitter to step inside the octagon with the Coors Light-drinkin' champ. Sports Radio Interviews transcribes the gold:

    "Shaq texts and Twitters me all the time saying he wants to fight Brock Lesnar. He's been training for 10 years; Shaq's probably the only dude in the NBA that can actually fight ... I told Shaq, I said listen, 'Win another NBA championship this year and then we'll talk next year.'"

    White's right; Shaq's yearning to get in the cage is nothing new. He's been training with Jonathan Burke of Gracie's Gym for 10 years now, where he does the full gamut of MMA, boxing, jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai and wrestling. Cagewriter spoke with Burke in May who said that O'Neal "works his tail off" during drills and "has way more talent with this stuff than people would imagine." And again, he dunked on a freakin' shark!

    It's a long shot to ever happen, but Shaq vs. Brock ... I would pay good money to see that.

    That really would come across as WWE-like. Of course shack is a monster who would also probably have to cut to make Hwt, but I doubt he could avoid being taken down and the Cavs wouldn't like this.

    catch weight 305 lbs fight non title of course and for good measure, make it a hell in the cell match. Brock wins this one easily. I'd much rather see Shaq vs Hong Man Choi
    Lets go Brent!

    Of course, I thought the UFC doesn't do one fight deals (involving the HW champ, much like Fedor)

    They did Hughes/Gracie and it was a catch weight, non title bout.
    Lets go Brent!
