I came for Lesnar , I stayed for the awesome

As a pro wrestling fan (let the boos begin), I barely watched mma, I knew who Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell were but that was it. But then lesnar transitioned into MMA and i had a reason to watch and support a pro wrestler prove he was tough.


The first full MMA event i ever saw was UFC 100, which was in 2009 which really isnt that long ago. I watched as Lesnar put a beating on Frank Mir then proceeded to be what i came for, He started to act like Brock Lesnar, then i realized it wasn't his act hes genuinely cocky. At that event a fight kind of stole my attention and that would be Belcher vs Sexyama. Of all the fights that happened that night this one intrigued me the most. I googled some Alan Belcher fights and then slowly started to watch all kinds of mma. I think its cool that Lesnar can bring fans in who genuinely care about the sport after he leaves. And even better i came for Lesnar, but as i watched more mma i started to root against him i remember thinking Carwin would smash him. I thought i'd share a story of a pro wrestling fan crossing over into mma since it seems to be a debated subject these days with many people thinking pro wrestling ang mma should be separated.
