Brock Lesnar training jiu-jitsu with Rodrigo Comprido for UFC 87 Heath Herring fight

Brock Lesnar Jiu-Jitsu training



"It is not enough that Brock Lesnar is a freak of nature with a physique that few can match, and have top trainers around like Greg Nelson (Black Belt under Pedro Sauer) & Marty Morgan (University of Minnesota Wrestling Coach). Noooo, Lesnar is taking his MMA training so seriously that he contracted multiple times BJJ World Absolute Champion Rodrigo "Comprido" to add to his preparation team. Comprido is spending time at the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy, adding his personal touch to Lesnar's training as he prepares to fight in UFC 87 against Heath Herring. Comprido's MMA training is in high demand especially coming off a super-successfull participation of his TEAM FLOMMA in the Adrenalin show."

Former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar-turned mixed martial artist, Brock Lesnar, has enlisted the services of seven-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion Rodrigo "Comprido" Medeiros for his upcoming fight with Heath Herring at UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy" at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn., on August 9. Lesnar lost his Octagon debut to Frank Mir via first round submission (kneebar) at UFC 81: "Breaking Point" earlier this year.
