Brock Lesnar made his highly anticipated debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship on February 2, 2008, at UFC 81 in a bout with Frank Mir, which he lost.

Lesnar was a WWE hero, and it was highly questioned whether his wrestling success would transfer over to Mixed Martial Arts. Brock proved that he was indeed worthy of championship status, after a brutal beating of Heath Herring, and finally earning the Heavyweight title against Randy Couture in UFC 91.
