Brock Lesnar : By the Numbers

Brock Lesnar one of the most love, and hated competitors to have ended up in the Octagon. Making his MMA debut against Kim Min-soo(Quick fact: Kim Min-soo got triangled by Semmy Schilt) at K-1 Dynamite on June 2nd 2007 TKOing his opponent in 1 minute and 9 seconds. would go on to become the UFC Heavyweight Champion and the "Baddest man on the planet" according to Dana White.

533 days Later he would become The UFC Heavyweight Champion of the world, defeating Randy Couture at 1 minute and 93 seconds of the second round.

Brock Lesnar is one of the most physically imposing fighters ever. There is no question of that. At 6 feet 3 inches tall, 265lbs and a 81 inch reach(He was 6th in the UFC behind : Jon Jones (84.5) Stefan Struve (84.5) Antonio Silva (83), Matt Mitrione (82), and Cheick Kongo (82)) his figure was almost unrealistic.

His base? Wrestling. His Accolades? D1 NCAA Heavyweight Champion earning a 106 win, 5 loss record at the end of his collegiate career (losing in the finals once to Stephen Neal. New England Patriots Offensive guard and 3 time Superbowl winner.) Lesnar would use as the core offense the wrestling he had nearly perfected over his collegiate years to bully his opponents into submission, and sometimes himself.

As of today Lesnar has a Record of 5 wins 3 losses. All of which concluded between June 2nd, 2007 and December 30th, 2011. That is 4 years, 6 months, and 29 days; or 1673 days. In 4 of Lesnars 8 fights he fought for a title. 3 of Lesnars 7 Opponents were former champion, thats 43% champions. He defended his title against Frank Mir and Shane Carwin finishing both.

Lesnar has only seen the judges score card one time. That being against Heath "Texas Crazy Horse" Herring or this guy.

He has finished every other opponent or been finished him self. With that stated, hi finishing rate was 80%.

Lesnar's Opponents combined records total 96 wins, 38 losses, and 1 no contest.

Lesnar landed 166 strikes, while being struck 117 times.

Lesnar got a take down in every fight except one, that being against Alistair Overeem though he did manage to get a total of 12 take downs total. While his opponents only successfully took him down 2 times.
