Brock is an animal, with an instinct and heart to win. He follows the principle of achieving all that he can. An athlete of his size, with lightning fast reflexes and speed is not something that people see every day. Combining his speed and strength with his wresting skill, he became the ferocious beast that he is today. But with great strength comes great responsibility. His health issues set him back, otherwise there would have been no stopping him.
“Here comes the pain,” the introduction of Brock Lesnar was clear to the public when he joined and fought in UFC. Franck Mir would have definitely understood! Left bloodied by the animal in their first fight, Frank was lucky to have escaped with the match. But Brock made sure that the mistake of winning against him was not to be repeated by Frank again.
He broke The Undertaker’s WrestleMania winning streak, he defeated The Rock, broke the stage when he suplexed the Big Show, and became a champion at a record age. Some say that he is the strongest 250+lbs athlete that they have ever seen. Lesnar has also headlined numerous WWE pay-per-view events, including WrestleMania XIX and WrestleMania 31. He took part in five of the best selling pay-per-views in UFC history.
10 He's A Modern Day Hercules
9 Undefeated Wrestling Record in His Senior Year
8 A Massive Iron Fist
Do you know the size of gloves he wears? It is 4 XL. Unbelievable, but yes, it is right. But wait a moment. In the history of combat sports in Nevada, he is the second man to wear such custom-made gloves. Choi Hong-man, also known as the South Korean giant, wears the biggest sized gloves. Choi Hong-man is 7.3 feet tall and his weight is 367 pounds. Yes, he is a giant too.
It is UFC 91 and Brock is going to fight Randy Couture. He says, in an interview:
"It's a huge fight, the biggest fight of the year, period.”
"But all I am thinking about is November 15 and ramming my size XXXXL gloves into his mouth."
7 Three Titles, One Monster
6 The NCAA Champion in WWE
In the past 50 years only a handful of amateur champions went to the world of pro wrestling from the NCAA. It simply did not happen until Brock Lesnar. Vern Gagne, Danny Hodge, Jack Brisco, and Kurt Angle made impacts and Brock followed in their footsteps. Although the move was controversial, Lesnar told the world that money talks:
