Stone Cold on Brock Lesnar: 'He took the UFC by storm'

Former UFC Heavyweight champion and WWE star, Brock Lesnar had a short but legendary MMA career. UFC Fight Pass recently released a special Lesnar category called’ The Best of the Beast’ to celebrate Lesnar’s legend. Included is short interviews with WWE stars Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and Jim Ross as well as all seven of Lesnar’s UFC fights and countdown shows.

The UFC released a short snippet of the Stone Cold interview, which you can watch below:

Stone Cold discussed how Lesnar affected the UFC’s pay per view sales (Courtesy of BloodyElbow):

He took the UFC by storm. He was the heavyweight champion. When Brock Lesnar fought, people bought the fights. I think Brock woke up everybody in the MMA world. And for a guy going in there from Pro-Wrestling, raises as much hell, cuts loose, and dominate like he did – bottom line is: Brock is a badass cat.

Lesnar is easily one of the most influential fighters to ever to step foot inside the Octagon. He was a polarizing and intriguing figure that garnered attention like no other.
