Brock Lesnar made an immediate impact in MMA in his 69 second debut win over Min Soo Kim in 2007, and he has continued to shock the world ever since. A 2000 NCAA Division I National Champion in wrestling, Lesnar made a positive impression in his first two UFC bouts against Frank Mir and Heath Herring, but at UFC 91 in November of 2008, he showed why he is one of the most feared fighters in the sport as he defeated Randy Couture to win the UFC heavyweight championship.
TRAINING: Oh, for this camp we’re doing everything different: I start my day off with two hours of transcendental meditation outside in the cold, then I lock myself in my new hyperbaric chamber and … No, it’s the same as every other camp: Get up. Eat. Train. Eat. Rest. Eat. Sleep. Repeat. It’s not rocket science.
When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training full-time specifically for MMA in 2006. I trained briefly in MMA during my college days. I always thought I would enjoy fighting, but, due to NCAA rules, I couldn’t try it while I was in college. When I finished wrestling in college (in 2001), there just wasn’t enough money or opportunity in fighting and WWE made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
