    There were a lot of people who were not giving Lesnar credit for his first trip into mma. People would just accuse Brock of chasing a payday when it wasn’t the case. He left a bigger paycheck to chase competition. Remember he tried out for the NFL before he settled into mma. Before the guy wanted to test himself athletically. Even recently he was doing wwe part time. He certainly could have made more if he added dates.
