The Los Angeles Times has a rare Q&A with Brock Lesnar to promote his match at SummerSlam against CM Punk. Below are the highlights:

Did he leave UFC prematurely?

"You've always got that part in your mind," Lesnar said. "I do miss it, but I've got to keep myself in check. What I went through the last few years was quite traumatic, not being able to fight like I wanted. I got back on the horse way too soon. Coulda, shoulda, woulda.

"That chapter in my life has come to closure, and I'm comfortable with it."

Why he originally left WWE:

"I left originally because I was a caged animal 300 days a year on the road and they knew that. That was the bottom line — I don't want to be that person."

His personality and his heel wrestling character:

"Inside, some days I feel like that," he said. "I am a private guy, and at the end of the day I only really do care about my family. That's the most important thing: my way of life, my family. Whoever is in front of that is going to get hurt."
