Brock Lesnar vs. JDS: TUF 13 on Spike TV—Lesnar Tried Out for the Vikings?!?!
Fantastic slow play by Dana White there: "I'm not sure how many people know this, but..."
Yeah, we ALL know that Brock Lesnar tried out for the Minnesota Vikings. That's one of the first nuggets everyone learns about the Minnesota Mountain. It's part of his uber-athletic lore so it seems awfully convenient that the TUF producers choose his season for the football coaches challenge.
As Dana says, however, the football drills are more about agility than specialized coordination that would give Brock a decisive edge—unless he was trying out to be the Vikes' placekicker or quarterback. He'll should feel more comfortable, but that's about it.
And, sure enough, they both breeze through the agility portion before getting gummed up with the field goal.
You know the Brazilian Junior dos Santos played soccer at some point so it makes sense that he's the first to sneak the pigskin through the uprights. What doesn't make sense is how coordinated fighters both look so awkward trying to throw a football.
JDS is the first to pierce the target and then starts hotdogging it down the field with a comfortable buffer between Lesnar and the $15,000 that's at stake. Considering ESPN just revealed that Brock is the highest paid mixed martial artist, I'd say that's a righteous outcome.
Especially when the man-child dos Santos reveals he gave money to Team Lesnar and acts the fool with his teammates.
I'll say it again, it's impossible not to like Junior dos Santos.
