Dana White Discusses Signing Of Brock Lesnar

Back when Brock Lesnar was entering MMA, many considered it to be just another mistake by the former WWE superstar.

However, Lesnar was able to talk at least one important figure into believing he could become a champion: UFC president Dana White.

Lesnar went on to wear the UFC heavyweight title. He has since retired from the sport, and returned to professional wrestling. During a recent interview with ESPN, White discussed the signing of Lesnar when he was just 1-0 in MMA.

I would be a liar if I said I didn’t bring Brock Lesnar in because I knew he would draw. Obviously, we looked at his wrestling background. The guy had an incredible college wrestling background but you know, we’ll give this guy a shot. It will be interesting. People will care. People will be interested about it.

Lesnar finished with a 4-3 record, including wins over Frank Mir and Shane Carwin. He also stepped inside the Octagon with the likes of former champions such as Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem.
