He was in the WWF. He is a gifted athlete. He had NFL try outs as well.

Brock has a college wrestling background and has recently made the transistion into MMA, he won his first fight i believe in EliteXc.

The bad news for Brock is that this isn't 1999 anymore were wrestlers dominate by laying and preying. You need to be versitile around the board now.

former national champion wrestler who tried to go into football but failed. he's most known for his time as a WWE superstar.

http://www.hoffco-inc.com/wwe/thist/...snar01st-1.jpg

he's a powerhouse of a man, but lacks mma experience. he had one fight against a can in K-1 whome he beat quite badly. took him down, passed, and pounded out his first and only victory. he's now signed w/ the ufc. he's trained w/ royce gracie..but not for very long. i'm not sure who he's w/ now tho.

He didn't fail. He walked onto the Vikings practice squad, which was unexpected in and of itself. He also made the squad despite being in a severe motorcycle accident a month or so earlier.

He was offered a contract to play in NFL Europe to get allow him to get seasoned (he hadn't played since high school) before going into the NFL. He chose to turn that offer down and pursue MMA.

Saying he 'tried to make it in football and failed' is the opposite of what actually happened. He simply didn't succeed on his own terms, which is go from football novice to NFL pro over the course of 6 months.

That's because K1 Dynamite USA was a copromotion between K1 and EliteXC. It also wasn't a HEROS event.
