Having succeeded in becoming a NCAA Champion, a UFC Heavyweight Champion and a WWE Heavyweight Champion (for which he still is), Lesnar also spent some time prior to the UFC in the NFL.
In a very rare video documentary (for which you can view below), you can see how it all began for Lesnar growing up on a dairy farm in Webster, South Dakota, through his hard work to making the NCAA Wrestling Championships, WWE and up to the point where is about to become the UFC Heavyweight Champion.
Lesnar goes on to win the UFC Heavyweight title by defeating Randy Couture via TKO in the second round.
Fast forward to present day and Lesnar has now retired from the UFC for good, re-signed his contract with the WWE and will be facing Roman Reigns in tonight’s WrestleMania XXXI.
Being a brand of #Eat #Sleep #Conquer #Repeat is truly what Brock Lesnar is all about.

After last weekend’s controversial stoppage decision, by referee, Eduardo Herdy at UFC Fight Night 62 in Rio de Janeiro where Herdy had decided to stop the action whilst Drew Dober was actively fighting his way out of an attempted guillotine choke by Leandro Silva, it has emerged now that the Brazilian Athletic commission have overturned the original decision of a win to Silva and made the fight, rightly so to a NO CONTEST bout.
This is the moment UFC referee, Eduardo Herdy, made his decision to stop the action in the fight of Leandro Silva vs. Drew Dober, for which called so much controversy even UFC president Dana White blasted the referee’s decision to award Leandro Silva the submission win over Drew Dober calling it ‘one of the biggest screw-ups of all-time’.
Unfortunately, Eduardo Herdy was already scheduled to referee the Godofredo Pepey vs. Andre Fili fight aswell, for which lucky for him, the fight took control of itself!
You can decide for yourself, after watching the footage!
