B/R MMA's 10 Favorite Brock Lesnar Pictures From the Internet
Say what you will about his personality or his road to the UFC heavyweight title, Brock Lesnar is an attraction.
Every time he has stepped foot inside the octagon he presence has elevated the show from event to spectacle.
While his drawing power is undeniable there are still many questions surrounding just how good this freak of nature truly is.
On Saturday, July 3rd, those questions and more will be answered when Lesnar squares off with the only man in the UFC who can match his raw size and power, Shane Carwin, for the undisputed UFC Heavyweight Title.
Before these two gargantuan fighters look to maul one another, let’s take a look at some of the best Brock Lesnar photos the internet has to offer.
10. Just Weird
Honestly, I have no idea what is going on with this photo. I'm not exactly sure what the symbolism is with the logs and the chain but I do know I love this photo.
9. Brush with the Law
In January of 2001 Lesnar was arrested in Kentucky for possessing what was believed to be a large amount of steroids.
Four months later the charges were dropped as tests proved the substances to be nothing more than vitamin supplements.
8. Becoming a Fighter
Since announcing that he would dive into the world of MMA, Brock Lesnar has been a sponge looking to soak up all of the knowledge and technique that he can.
While he still relies heavily on his wrestling ability, Lesnar's progression from fight to fight has been impressive to say the least.
For the record, Brock Lesnar actually sinking in an armbar or leg lock in competition is a horrific thought.
7. Where It All Started
People tend to forget that Lesnar is much more than a physical specimen who came to MMA from the world of entertainment wrestling.
During his college years, Lesnar was champion wrestling amassing a four-year record of 106-5.
Lesnar's Amateur Wrestling Accomplishments:
Two-Time NJCAA All-American
1998 NJCAA National Champion
Two-Time NCAA Division I All-American
Two-Time Big Ten Conference Champion
1999 NCAA Division I National Runner-Up
2000 NCAA Division I National Champion
6. The Changing of the Guard
On November 15, 2008—with only three career fights—Brock Lesnar defeated the legendary Randy Couture for the UFC Heavyweight Title.
In my eyes this fight signified the dawning of a new age in MMA's heavyweight division—the age of the giants.
Moving forward more and more of these Lesnar-like freak athletes will be finding their way to MMA, making the days of the 230 lb heavyweight champion a thing of the past.
5. The Agony of Defeat
At UFC 81, Brock Lesnar made his highly anticipated debut in the UFC, taking on former champion, Frank Mir.
Lesnar would get off to a great start controlling the action with his wrestling and athleticism but a rookie mistake against a BJJ black belt would lead to the first loss of his career.
4. Sweet Revenge
I'm not condoning Lesnar's post-fight antics at UFC 100 by any means, but I can see what led to him getting in Mir's face after mauling him during the fight.
Lesnar's fire and desire is what makes him such a great athlete, but it is also what makes him such a polarizing figure amongst the fans.
3. No Words Necessary
What happens when you taunt an opponent after a win, flip off the fans, make a crude sexual remark, and insult a major sponsor?
If you're Brock Lesnar you smile, hold up a beer, and say you’re sorry.
2. Just Scary
This picture says it all; Lesnar is scary.
Look at the focus and aggression in his eyes—that is the picture of a man on a mission.
1. This Is Your Face on Brock Lesnar
No, that's not Brock Lesnar.
This is a photo of Heath Herring's face after fighting Lesnar at UFC 87.
The first punch Lesnar threw in the fight shattered Herring's orbital socket—OUCH!
Sucks to be that guy.
