Brock Lesnar Spends ‘Six Figures’ On His Training Camps

Brock Lesnar Training Camp

We all know training camps can be expensive for fighters, but we never really hear how expensive. As interesting as it would be to see a list of how much these guys spend to hone their skills and get in peak condition 8-10 weeks at a time, I don’t have one, but I can share that Brock Lesnar would probably be at the top.

As he revealed to Yahoo! Sports, he spends more on his training camps than most people make in a year.

This camp has seven heavyweight training partners, a group that ranges from sizeable strikers (Carwin has a big right hand) to two-time NCAA wrestling champion Cole Konrad.

In addition to Morgan, he’ll bring in specialists, such as Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros for jiu-jitsu. It’s intense. He pays everyone well, puts them up in nice lodging and covers all expenses. Lesnar says it costs “six figures” to run.

“This camp costs me a lot of money,” he said.

“I’m fortunate to be able to do it,” Lesnar said. “It’s a great environment. A lot of these other guys, they travel around and try to find the right guys to work out with. This is best heavyweight camp in the world.

As Fightlinker points out, just because Brock spends a boatload of money on his training camps doesn’t mean it’s better than training at places like Greg Jackson’s MMA or Xtreme Couture. Brock just has the means to bring a great camp to him in the middle of nowhere which jacks up the price of everything.

The funny thing is when you consider Brock makes millions of dollars each fight, I bet he spends less percentage wise than a lot of guys do.

    Well regardless if he spends less, percentage wise, its a good article. Very interesting if he ever ends up losing what will he do next?? Fire everyone and bring in a new batch of peeps!! Well i just as well never find out, seeing that i like Brock!! lol

  • Logan

    i agree. he could be spending 6 figures. but that doesn’t mean that it has the credentials of a camp like ATT or some of the other camps. I’m not saying his camp is bad by any means, all I’m saying is that you cant say that just because this guy is spending over 100k to train then he can just run through people who train at Greg Jackson’s Camp or with American Top Team.

  • BIG D

    Well, we will just have to see. After every fight Brock is becoming more and more serious. He could be unstoppable for a long time if he stays mentally in it like he is. I like Carwin’s personality but I think Brock will take him down and sit on him and baby hammer fist him to a tap…lol.
