Brock Lesnar tapped into a lifetime of wrestling to overwhelm the much more experienced Heath Herring over three rounds Saturday in the co-main event of UFC 87 “Seek and Destroy” in Minneapolis, Minn.

Fans inside the Target Center rewarded the 2000 NCAA Div. I wrestling champion for the University of Minnesota with their undying adulation, while the judges handed Lesnar the second victory of his short, but so-far productive mixed martial arts career with a 30-26 unanimous decision nod across the cards.

Lesnar (2-1) barreled out of the gate with a wild knee that missed, but the former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar took the lessons learned from an overzealous loss to Frank Mir (Pictures) last February and put them to quick use.

Lesnar, who’s trained in the sport since early 2007, followed up with a searing right straight that sent Herring (26-14, 1 NC) sailing to the canvas. A stunned Herring rolled backwards as all 280 pounds of Lesnar charged at his downed foe like a bull enraged at the sight of red.
