Brock Lesnar’s run in the UFC was something spectacular. The former WWE champion made his promotional debut in the UFC at UFC 81 when he fought Frank Mir and the fight did not go well for Lesnar as he suffered a first-round submission loss.
Despite starting off with a loss, Lesnar returned five months later to fight Heath Herring and took home a decision win to secure his first win in the UFC. The rest is history.
Lesnar went on to capture the UFC Heavyweight title after this and got wins over Randy Couture, Frank Mir, and Shane Carwin before suffering two losses against Alistair Overeem and Cain Velasquez.
In his recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Lesnar revealed that he only had a one-fight deal with the UFC.
“I had a one-fight deal with the UFC, and I was like, ‘Please give me another shot at this.’ Boom, then it took off. I fought Heath Herring and then I got Randy Couture and won the belt,” he said.
He further went on to add that he had even ordered an Octagon to prepare for his UFC run.
“It’s a different game entering the octagon. I’m telling you, you’ve got to be half batsh*t crazy. You do. I ordered an octagon so I didn’t have the first jitters of getting in that octagon. I’m like ‘Dana, I want an octagon.’ Boom, ship it off to Brock, so I could fight in it, practice in it. But then you’re in front of 20,000 people and they shut the door, and it’s like, OK, here we go,” Lesnar said.
He currently holds a professional record of 5-3-1 to his name and has not fought since his fight with Mark Hunt back in UFC 200 which was ruled as a no-contest.
