Ultimate Fighter Brock Lesnar: Canada’s Health Care Like ‘Third World Country’

January 20, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Brock Lesnar, the tattooed and outspoken Ultimate Fighting heavyweight champion, announced his return to the ring after a prolonged intestinal illness, during a teleconference today. And in typical Brock Lesnar fashion, he made headlines for an off-message rant, when he proceeded to diss the Canadian healthcare system calling it a “third world country.” And a man who once said he might “get on top of [his] wife” after his match, didn’t stop his rant there. After insulting our neighbors to the North, he then offered his political views, declaring that he was a Conservative Republican who doesn’t want the “socialistic healthcare” policies of President Obama.

Brock Lesnar told reporters that when he fell ill in Canada in October, he sought care at a Canadian hospital. Lesnar said that the hospital had broken equipment and was unable to help him. “They couldn’t do nothing for me. It was like I was in a third world country. I had to get out of there.”

Lesnar then described his terrifying “escape” from the “third world country” Canadian healthcare system. He said that his wife saved his life, because she busted him out of the Socialistic hospital and drove 100 miles-per-hour until she crossed the border and entered health care nirvana in the United States.

Lesnar went on to say that Canadians are nice people and that they have good hunting. And he even owns property in the Socialist nation, but their healthcare pretty much sucks. “I love Canada. I own property in Canada but if I had to choose between care in Canada or the U.S., I definitely want to be in the United States. I wasn’t at the right facility,” Lesnar told reporters.

Lesnar refused to provide the name of the Canadian third world hospital that he escaped from in the dead of night. When asked by Canadian reporters for additional details about his treatment there, he tried to walk back his complaints. “The hospital I was at, it wasn’t their fault. They had some machinery that wasn’t working. We went to where we could have [the proper testing] done.”

Lesnar then said that the U.S. has the best doctors and healthcare and that we don’t need the “total reform” proposed by President Obama. “Our healthcare system is a little radical, but we’ve got the best doctors in the world. I don’t believe a total reform is necessary. We don’t need socialistic healthcare in America. The doctors in the United States gave me the best care possible.”

When a reporter asked him about his health insurance, he responded that he provided his own. He acknowledged that health insurance was “expensive, but said,”we don’t need Socialistic health care in America.”

Of course, not everyone in America has access to our great doctors and hospitals, but that’s not a problem for wealthy individuals, like Lesnar.

“I’m a Conservative Republican I don’t want this to happen,” said Lesnar.

Lesnar plans to return to fighting for the UFC sometime this summer.

    I cant stand brock lesnar. but he’s right i had a experients just like him in Canada. It really doesnt compare to the U.S system. but the hospital i was at in Canada did seem like they cared more about my situation. They just lacked Good docters and facilities. Its the truth. It would be sad to see our healthcare system go down the same path

    What an idiot. He doesn’t even reveal the name of the hospital that he was being treated at. Sounds like a conservative republican meathead. Good thing for him he is 1) rich and can afford his own insurnace if it isn’t provided for him through his skull bashing occupation and 2) he is a monster who can earn a living beating the crap out of people because he surely lacks the brains to do anything else.
    As a healthcare professional and having worked with Canadian doctors, thier quality of care is good and Canadians are overwhelmingly satisfied with thier system. I’m not advocating that we goto thier system, but Brock Lesnar is ought to stick to his brainless profession and shut the hell up. Typical Republican. Chest beating idiot.

    That’s funny, because I know someone who has great insurance here in the States and was in the hospital for an intestinal infection and stoppage of the intestines. The doctors have decided they do not know how to help this lady, who is 75 and weighs 79 pounds. They want to discharge her while she is still in isolation for the infection. We have to wear a gown, gloves and a mask to visit and they think its O.K. to send her home? Probably because her insurance doesn’t want to pay anymore. This is good health care?

    Turning out a skeleton without working on getting her healthy? Making her 76 year old husband try to bathe her and feed her at home? Why wouldn’t they at least get her weight back to a healthy limit? She wouldn’t get sent home if she were in Canada. She would be taken care of with no cost as long as she needed the care. My grandfather was hospitalized for over a year in Canada and received excellent care. Brock lesnar is the epitome of American conservatism. He’s got lots of money but no brains, kind of like Sarah Palin.
