After five years in the MMA wilderness, Brock Lesnar makes his highly anticipated return to the octagon for UFC 200 against ‘Super Samoan’ Mark Hunt on Sunday morning (AEST).
Lesnar has enjoyed a decorated career, winning championships as an amateur and professional wrestler and also as an MMA fighter, successfully defending his heavyweight championship multiple times in the UFC. The 38-year-old American also dipped his toe in the waters of the NFL!
Lesnar grew up on a dairy farm in South Dakota and has since gained notoriety for his wrestling and MMA abilities. The Canadian resident won his first undisputed heavyweight world champion wrestling title during SummerSlam of 2002 where he beat ‘The Rock’, Dwayne Johnson.
We decided to track Lesnar’s journey since his professional wrestling debut at the start of the century.
