Lesnar training partner and NCAA champ jumping into MMA

Cagewriter

While wrestling for the University of Minnesota, Cole Konrad had to follow in Brock Lesnar's footsteps. Konrad went on to best Lesnar, winning two national championships to Lesnar's one. After training with Lesnar, Konrad is going to try his hand at MMA.

Konrad battled with Olympian Steve Mocco for both of Konrad's national titles. At that point in NCAA Division I wrestling, Mocco and Konrad ruled the roost and though Mocco won matches during the season, it was Konrad who won their epic, overtime battles at the national finals. One of the other top heavyweights in that time period? UFC heavyweight Cain Velasquez.
