Video: Brock Lesnar drills wrestling with Gable Steveson at University of Minnesota

Brock Lesnar is retired from MMA, but he hasn’t stopped drilling his combat sports roots.

The WWE superstar spent time Friday at his alma mater, the University of Minnesota, wrestling Gophers sophomore Gable Steveson.

Lesnar wrestled his junior and senior years at Minnesota after transferring from Bismarck State College in North Dakota. Over the span of his four-year career, Lesnar compiled a 106-5 record. A two-time All-American, Lesnar won the 2000 NCAA Division-I heavyweight wrestling championship.

A video posted Friday by “Minnesota on BTN” shows Lesnar tangling on the mats with current wrestler Steveson. Steveson also posted a pair of images of the two behemoths post-workout on Twitter.

Check out the video and the images which follow:

He’s only 19, but Steveson’s wrestling abilities are highly touted. As a freshman, he recorded a 35-2 record during the 2018-19 season. He recently qualified for the Olympic trials.

The sophomore athlete recently was reinstated after a suspension during a 100-plus day sexual assault investigation. The investigation concluded after the Hennepin County attorney’s office declared there was inadequate evidence to prosecute Steveson.
