Apart from being one of the highest-paid WWE superstars, Lesnar was also a brilliant UFC fighter. Talking about his UFC career, Joe Rogan stated, “If Brock Lesnar had the right coach, like if he went to a Matt. Not saying there’s anything wrong with his coaches.”

“What I’m saying is, if he had the right coach at the right amount of time. Like if he went to Matt Hume or others, they engineered his career. From the beginning to the time he has been introduced to the UFC to the time he’s introduced to high-level competition. He could have been an all-time great.”

Rogan emphasized Lesnar’s impressive career, noting that The Beast Incarnation had defeated UFC legend Frank Mir in only his second official UFC fight. He goes on to say, “In his third fight after that he fights Heath Herring and beats the sh*t out of Heath Herring. Then he fights Randy fu*king Couture and stops Randy Couture and his fourth professional fu*king fight.”
