In the past, athletes wishing to move between the WWE and the UFC have come under intense scrutiny. Nowadays however, the whole process seems to be a little more straightforward, if you’re name in Brock Lesnar that is. Currently employed by the WWE, Lesnar also became UFC heavyweight champion in 2008, in just his fourth professional bout with the company.
Now making a foray back into UFC, people have been wondering how he got legendary WWE owner Vince McMahon to agree to his appearance at UFC 200. Well, according to Brock, it was all settled in a very gentlemanly way… with an arm wrestle.
“I said, ‘Listen, old man, we can do this the hard way or the easy way,’” Lesnar joked on ESPN SportsCenter this week. “I said, ‘Do you wanna arm-wrestle for it?’ and he’s like, ‘Yeah, what the hell.’ So, I ended up beating him, and here we are.”
