Jake Paul couldn’t contain his excitement after receiving praise from UFC legend Brock Lesnar, who recently said, ‘The Problem Child’ and his brother, Logan Paul, are doing “great” work.

“Great for YouTube,” Lesnar said of The Paul Brothers during a recent interview with The New York Post. “I’m happy for those guys. They worked at something. They built their name up. They thought outside the box, they promoted themselves.”

Lesnar even suggested Logan Paul could successfully transition to the WWE.

“Can he become a professional wrestler?” Lesnar said. “Maybe if he puts as much ambition into that.”

Paul, who is clearly a big fan, took to social media to express his joy after reading what Lesnar had to say about him.

“Wow Brock Lesnar supporting my brother and I is crazy, we loved him and used to watch him all the time growing up. GO CHASE YOUR DREAMS TODAY,” Jake Paul wrote on social media.

Jake Paul’s Combat Career

Paul transitioned to boxing in 2020 and has quickly amassed a 5-0 professional record in the sport. The former Disney star is yet to face an actual boxer and holds wins over a fellow YouTuber, a basketball player as well as two former UFC fighters.

The 25-year-old has recently been flirting with the idea of transitioning to MMA, but he apparently wants big money and big fights in order to do so.

Last week, Paul took to social media with a proposal for UFC president Dana White that could see the internet celebrity square off against Conor McGregor inside the Octagon.

“Dana – Since you like me now, how about a 1 fight UFC deal to fight Conor,” Paul wrote. “If I win, you agree to my UFC fighter pay and healthcare proposal. If I lose I donate my entire purse to all UFC fighters who make less than $50K a fight and never mention UFC again Deal?”

Do you think we’ll see Jake Paul transition to MMA in 2022?

Brock Lesnar is one of the biggest stars in UFC history but the former heavyweight champion has never been an avid watcher of MMA.

Lesnar, a native of South Dakota competed as a professional mixed martial artist on nine separate occasions – eight of which came under the UFC banner.

The current WWE superstar most recently made the walk in a surprise return to the sport at UFC 200 in July 2016, battling to a decision win over Mark Hunt, a result that has since been overturned to a no-contest.

During a recent appearance on The Michael Kay Show, Lesnar explained that he very rarely watches TV and when he does it’s to catch big NFL or UFC events.

“I’m not a huge TV guy,” Lesnar said. “Never have been. Honestly, I haven’t. I tuned into the Super Bowl, didn’t catch the halftime show, but I did go back and watch it, I watched it on YouTube. But I never, like I don’t watch the UFC. Even when I was competing, I would go back and watch some of my film, but I never, you know, sat down and (watched). I can’t honestly say, maybe I’ve rented a half a dozen Pay-Per-Views.” (Transcribed by Wrestlinginc.com)

Brock Lesnar Recently Closed The Door On His MMA Career

Lesnar has often been linked to a UFC return but that part of his life is over. The 43-year-old officially closed the door on his MMA career during a recent interview with The New York Post.

“That door is closed,” Brock Lesnar said. “You know what, Dana White, the Fertitta brothers (Frank and Lorenzo) were exceptional to me. I’m too old. That’s a young man’s sport, and that door is closed. I’m Brock Lesnar, the WWE Superstar.”

Brock Lesnar, a former undisputed UFC heavyweight champion, has firmly closed the door on a return to professional mixed martial arts in the future, claiming that the sport is a “young man’s” as he continues his run in professional wrestling.

Lesnar, a native of South Dakota competed as a professional mixed martial artist on nine separate occasions – eight of which came under the banner of the UFC.

The former undisputed champion most recently made the walk in a surprise return to the sport at UFC 200 in July 2016, battling to an eventual official ‘No Contest’ against promotional alum, Mark Hunt. 

Following the bout, which was originally awarded to Lesnar courtesy of a unanimous decision win, the former titleholder tested positive for the banned substance, clomiphene, resulting in a suspension from anti-doping agency, USADA and a fine from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Prior to his ‘No Contest’ against Mark Hunt, Brock Lesnar ended his first UFC stint with a defeat against Alistair Overeem

Ending his career with a 5-3(1) professional record, Lesnar was briefly linked with a return to the Octagon in a heavyweight title offing against former two-weight champion, Daniel Cormier back in 2018, however, a bout failed to ever materialize. 

Lesnar was also subject of a notable call out from former two-time light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones ahead of a potential heavyweight division move, however, a bout also failed to hit paper – as did a move to Bellator to fight sport icon, Fedor Emelianenko. 

Ahead of his headlining appearance at Wrestlemania 38 in April, Lesnar confirmed during an interview with The New York Post that he would not be making a return to professional mixed martial arts in the future, claiming that his age would not permit a comeback.

“That door is closed,” Brock Lesnar said of a return to mixed martial arts. “You know what, Dana White, the Fertitta brothers (Frank and Lorenzo) were exceptional to me. I’m too old. That’s a young man’s sport, and that door is closed. I’m Brock Lesnar, the WWE Superstar.” 

Making his professional mixed martial arts debut back in June 2007 with a victory over Min-Soo Kim, Lesnar then debuted in the UFC with a kneebar loss to Frank Mir, before embarking on a four-fight winning run, lodging wins over Heath Herring, and then-champion, Randy Couture – before stopping both Mir, and then-interim champion, Shane Carwin to defend his heavyweight title and unify the championships, respectively.

UFC President Dana White gave former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar his own makeshift Octagon to get ready for his MMA transition.

Lesnar last fought in MMA at UFC 200, earning a decision win over Mark Hunt that was later overturned to a no-contest. This was after Lesnar tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in a pre-fight test.

But Lesnar’s MMA career included arguably the best start in the sport’s history. After a professional debut win against Min Soo Kim in K-1 Hero’s, he would win four of his first five fights in the UFC including his heavyweight title win over Randy Couture at UFC 91.

Lesnar would go on to defend the title against Frank Mir and Shane Carwin before losing it to Cain Velasquez.

Lesnar made his transition to MMA after a long tenure in professional wrestling. He continues to be a massive star in the WWE, and it wasn’t an easy move to MMA for him.

During a recent interview on The Pat McAfee Show, Lesnar told a story about the lengths he went to become physically and mentally ready for his UFC debut.

“Like when you go through the door… I built or ordered an Octagon so I could, didn’t have at first, like, jitters of getting in an Octagon,” Lesnar admitted. “I’m like, ‘Dana, I want an Octagon’ and like, ah boom, [the UFC] shipped an Octagon. So I can fight in it and practice in it, you know? But then you’re in front of 20,000 people and they shut the door and it’s like, ‘Ahhh’.”

“Boom, then it took off. I fought Heath Herring and then I got Randy Couture and won the belt.” (h/t The Sun)

While Lesnar has alluded to his cordial relationship with White, he has admitted that he feels he should’ve been compensated more for his efforts. This comes amidst current UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou’s call for a better pay structure for fighters.

Lesnar continues to be a prominent figure in the WWE and can be seen competing in the promotion’s Monday Night Raw shows, among others.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar is still one of the most prominent stars in professional wrestling, and he recently showed off his skills on a Jackass cast member.

One reason why Lesnar is such a big star in WWE is his ability to stay consistent between his character in the ring, and his real-life personality outside of it.

Lesnar demonstrated this when he ran into the Jackass crew at a restaurant in St. Louis, MO. During a recent appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Lesnar explained how things played out.

Brock Lesnar Throws Wee Man Through A Table

“My buddy goes, ‘The Jackass crew is out there.’… So, I sent the waiter out and sent over a nice bottle of wine,” Lesnar said. “So then next thing I know, Knoxville comes into the back room. He breaks my f**king door down. He broke the door on the private room. So, I come walking out, and in the midst of all this, (the other Jackass guys) were setting themselves on fire out in the restaurant. I didn’t know that at the time. So, I’m going home. I’m going to bed. I’m walking out, and Wee Man stands up and peacocks me a little bit. I just picked him up and said, ‘I’m gonna put you down right there.’ None of it was promo. None of it was staged. It just turned out to be really fun.” (h/t Cinema Blend)

Lesnar last competed in MMA back in 2016 at UFC 200, earning a decision win over Mark Hunt that was later overturned to a no-contest. Lesnar had briefly teased a UFC comeback when Daniel Cormier was the heavyweight champion, but the fight never materialized.

Lesnar can be watched competing on WWE’s Monday Night Raw and other shows for the promotion.

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar has revealed a rather surprising request he made to promotional president, Dana White ahead of his organizational bow – which included the shipping of a full-sized Octagon for him to prepare in.

Lesnar, who ended his professional mixed martial arts career boasting a 5-3(1) record, most recently featured in a main card bout against fellow promotional alum, Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July 2016.

The former undisputed champion has initially secured a rather one-sided unanimous decision win over Hunt, until the bout was eventually overturned to an official ‘No Contest’ after Lesnar failed a post-fight drug test administered by anti-doping agency USADA after testing positive for the banned substance, clomiphene in an in-competition drug test sample. Lesnar was fined a sum of $250,00 for his infringement, and issued a one-year retroactive suspension from active competition.

Brock Lesnar has competed nine times professionally in mixed martial arts, scoring a 5-3(1) record

Despite a return to Vince McMahon’s professional wrestling outfit, WWE, Lesnar was linked, albeit briefly to an Octagon return to challenge then-heavyweight champion, former two-weight titleholder, Daniel Cormier in a title bout in 2018.

In the time since, the bout failed to ever materialize, however, Lesnar has continually been linked to a clash against former two-time light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, who called out the former heavyweight champion, as well as a potential Bellator MMA signing to meet with sport icon, Fedor Emelianenko.

Competing for the UFC in all but one of his nine professional mixed martial arts walks, Lesnar, who recently competed at the WWE’s flagship event, Royal Rumble, claimed he had ordered the UFC to send him an Octagon to train in to prepare of his UFC debut, as well as claiming that a person would have to be “batsh*t crazy” to compete in MMA.

“It’s a different game, you know, entering the Octagon,” Brock Lesnar said on The Pat McAfee Show. “And I’m telling you, you’ve got to be – like, you’ve got to be half batsh*t crazy. Like when you go through the door – like, I built or ordered an Octagon so I could, didn’t have to at first – like, jitters of getting in an Octagon.”

I’m like, ‘Dana (White), I want an Octagon,’” Brock Lesnar continued. “And like, ah boom, (the UFC) shipped an Octagon. So I can fight in it and practice in it, you know? But then you’re in front of 20,000 people and they shut the door and it’s like, ‘Ahhh’.” (Transcribed by WrestlingInc.com)

A former undisputed heavyweight champion with the UFC, Brock Lesnar managed to clinch the title with a 2008 knockout win over Randy Couture, before defending the title against two-time foe, Frank Mir, and then unifying the titles against Shane Carwin.

Dropping the championship in 2010, Lesnar suffered a first round ground strikes loss to Cain Velasquez, before suffering a first round knockout loss to Alistair Overeem in December of the following year.
