The Rock: What Lesnar did was 'epic and historic'

 

The UFC has recently been releasing videos hyping it's new online service 'Fight Pass.' This week they are hyping the release of the complete Brock Lesnar collection, which is coming along with exclusive interviews discussing the UFC career of 'The Beast' with The Rock, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, and Jim Ross.

In his interview, 'The Rock' believes that Brock Lesnar accomplished more than any other heavyweight in history ever has in that short a time-period. Agree, disagree?

From college wrestler to pro wrestler to UFC champion, it was a pretty amazing run, and Lesnar's pal Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson -- who is also a big MMA fan -- says that if not for diverticulitis, the former heavyweight king might still be on top of the sport, reigning over everyone with an iron fist.

"I don't know if anybody will ever accomplish what he's accomplished in the heavyweight division in that short amount of time," Johnson said. "Had it not been for the unfortunate issue he had to deal with his stomach, who knows what could have happened if he continued to train, and continued to hone in on his skills. What he did was epic and historic."

No one ever propelled themselves to a title in the amount of time that Lesnar was able to. His career was both epic and historic because he was finally able to definitively answer the question "Which is the most effective martial art?"

I wonder if any other pro wrestlers will try MMA...has Bautista ever discussed doing a second MMA fight?

Yep. He seemed like a really unpleasant person, but what he accomplished was remarkable whether or not the heavyweight division was weak or strong at the time.

What a waste if true. Beating the UT in a retirement match at wrestlemania would give a huge boost to a young up and comer.

Whats funny is Brock was 30 years old when he started in the UFC. Past his physical prime. If that guy had started MMA straight out of college he probably would have been the greatest of all time.BRB, I'm going to go make a few million $$$ prowrestling for a while, and still win the UFC title when I'm 30!

All this is is a fictional story line full of what ifs. Anybody can play that out with any fighter to make them look good or bad.

and was all set o face Fedor if Dana got it signed after ufc100 and Brock didnt get sick. and had he not got sick during TUF, he would have fought JDS as well. had he beat Reem, would have fought Cain again.his opponents could have looked like this if it all worked out:ChoiMirColeman (got hurt, Herring replaced him)CoutureMirFedorCarwinCainJDSReemCainand a guy with ZERO MMA experience was ready to step to face this MURDERES ROW!fucking RESPECT!
