Back in 2004, UFC Champion Brock Lesnar opted to try and fulfil his long-standing dream of making it big in the National Football League (NFL). Despite being involved in a nasty accident on his motorcycle, he reportedly joined the Minnesota Vikings roster in time for their pre-season preparations. Brock Lesnar took the #69 jersey and played defensive tackle for Minnesota Vikings in throughout the pre-season.
However, Brock Lesnar was reportedly omitted from the final roster, after he participated in the two-month-long training camp with the Vikings while also featuring frequently in the pre-season. In the end, it was reported that a lot of independent factors added up and resulted in Brock Lesnar’s unsuccessful attempt of making it big in the American NFL. One can only imagine how his career trajectory had been if he was successful in making the cut for the Minnesota Vikings 15 years ago.
