Brock Lesnar is a current pro wrestler as well as the former UFC heavyweight champion of the world and believe or not, he actually shares the record for the most title defenses in UFC heavyweight championship history which is currently two defenses.

Lesnar is also one of the most athletic fighters to ever fight in the UFC, which is probably why he was able to win a title so quickly into his MMA career (his fourth ever MMA fight which is virtually unheard of). He also had a lot of success as an amateur wrestler too and even had a stint in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings.

In the following video, we find out some other shocking facts about Brock Lesnar that you may not know and some are quite surprising.

For instance, Lesnar seems like a pretty straight edge guy but according to the video, Lesnar has struggled with substance issues in the past.
