Former NCAA wrestling champion and WWE star Brock Lesnar made official his debut in K-1 HERO's, reports Sherdog.com's Mike Sloan from ringside at K-1 USA's "Battle At Bellagio" tournament in Las Vegas.
Invited to the ring Saturday evening by announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr., the 285-pound Lesnar announced his planned October debut against a yet-to-be-decided opponent.
Joining the Webster, South Dakota native in his announcement, three-time UFC tournament champion Royce Gracie stated that he would help prepare the former WWE pro wrestler for his mixed martial arts debut.
Lesnar has recently trained in Bettendorf, Iowa with Pat Miletich and his group of fighters.
I'm watching the replay now...and here's a brief summary of what I just saw:
Brock Lesnar just came into the ring at the K-1 event in Vegas and announced that he is excited to fight for K-1 and that it is now official. Lesnar then said that he would like to bring in the person that needs no introduction and that he will train with.
He called Royce Gracie to the ring...Royce came in and took the mic and stated how it is a pleasure to train Lesnar "I am a Jiu-Jitsu fighter and you have the wrestling, a good combination...the next HW champion".
So it is now official that Lesnar will be fighting for K-1 in their MMA shows with Royce doing the BJJ training.
Things could get interesting now...we will have to wait and see.
