Curtis Blaydes is a rising Heavyweight contender and was also due to get a title shot against the winner of Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier. In UFC 226, Cormier won the heavyweight title, but things didn’t go as Blaydes has pictured, instead UFC is planning a super fight between Lesnar and Cormier.

Speaking on the latest episode of Submission Radio, Curtis Blaydes gave his take on Lesnar’s controversial title shot:

[Transcript via Bloody Elbow]

No. None whatsoever,” Blaydes said of Lesnar’s chance of defeating Cormier.

“I don’t even view Brock as a legitimate MMA fighter, He was juiced to the gills when he fought in the early to mid-2000’s. So I don’t respect juice heads. This isn’t a sport. It’s not a sport like the NFL or the NBA or MLB or NHL or any other major sports leagues in the world, because in any of those leagues you can’t just be a guy off the street and just take a guy’s spot on the roster cause you’re famous. That would be like if Will Smith was like, ‘yo, I really like the Lakers, I want to play for the Lakers’. I don’t think skill matters quite as much as marketability.”

Curtis Blaydes takes on Francis Ngannou in the UFC’s second appearance in Beijing, China and will take place in Cadillac Arena on November 24.
