Brock Lesnar Achieved a Massive Feat That No One Can Replicate, but Not Even WWE Acknowledges It

Apart from pro wrestling and MMA, Lesnar also dabbled in the NFL, though not for long. While he did not get to play in the regular season, his combine numbers can give most NFL players a run for their money. As per reports, the WWE icon managed to complete a 40-yard sprint in 4.7 seconds, perform a vertical jump of 35 inches, a broad jump of 10 feet, and bench press 225 pounds for 30 reps. He achieved these numbers in 2004 when he signed with the Minnesota Vikings.

Lesnar’s explosive entry into the UFC saw him facing Mir in his debut, a fight he dominated before succumbing to a kneebar submission. Lesnar ascended in the heavyweight division, securing the UFC title by defeating Herring and Couture. His UFC 100 rematch showcased a shift in his fighting style, attributed to illness, as noted by Mir. 

After recovering from diverticulitis surgery, Lesnar won against Carwin but encountered losses to Velasquez and Overeem. A subsequent bout of diverticulitis necessitating surgery marked the end of his promising MMA career. Mir believes Lesnar could have remained a dominant force in the heavyweight division without these health setbacks.
