As we told you yesterday, WWE superstar Brock Lesnar appeared on a variety of ESPN shows on Tuesday to promote SummerSlam. He talked about everything from his love for farming to his feelings on Vince McMahon and Dana White. Lesnar was also asked about Ronda Rousey at one point and referred to her as "a man amongst women."

"She's a super athlete in a weak division," he said. "I think she is a man amongst women in the women's division."

But lest you think he was throwing shots at her, Lesnar went on to offer her nothing but praise.

"I take my hat off to her," he said. "She's going an excellent job at what she's doing. I don't know how she's juggling everything—movies, this, that, the other thing and going to Brazil and kicking butt over there. My hat's off to you, Ronda. I'm not taking any talent away from her at all. I think she's a super beast in the women's division."

A "super beast"? That sounds about right. Or at least, better than "a man amongst women." Check out the video above at around the five-minute mark to hear Lesnar talk about Rousey.
