Lesnar Brock?!? No, it’s Brock Lesnar

Brock LesnarOutside the realm of UFC, there's some mild confusion about who this “Lesnar Brock” guy is.

Perhaps that's because it has always been Brock Lesnar.  Outside of pro wrestling fans, a lot of people didn’t know who he was four or five years ago.  Now, though, people who aren't even big fans of Mixed Martial Arts are becoming aware of how big Lesnar is these days.  A gladiator-like figure, his addition to the UFC lineup has been called one of the most controversial signings in the history of the organization.

The first thing people notice about Lesnar, of course, is his size. For MMA, Brock Lesnar is huge. He stands 6'3 and weighs about 265 lbs. The former high school wrestler in South Dakota became a college champ and then hit the big time in the WWE.  He became "The Next Big Thing" in the wrestling world.

Lesnar also tried out for the Minnesota Vikings to play professional football. There is debate on whether Lesnar was close or not to making the NFL team. He was eventually offered a chance to play in NFL Europe but turned that down to stick with wrestling.

His move to the UFC was met with mixed views. Many UFC fans instantly disliked him because of the wrestling connection. Lesnar didn't start his career out in the UFC with a bang. In fact, he tapped out to lose to Frank Mir in his opening fight.

It didn't take long for Lesnar to get the hang of the UFC. Much to the chagrin of his haters, Lesnar became the Heavyweight Champion at UFC 91 when he defeated Randy Couture. His battle with a serious ailment did nothing but increase his Q rating when he began his comeback early in 2010.  He’s a marquee name now—one that’s mainstream.

Lesnar Brock? Most people don’t make that mistake these days.
