Brock Lesnar says he career is only guided by money, not a legacy

Brock Lesnar has been pretty great at nearly everything he has tried his hand out. 

The Minnesota-native was a former NCAA Heavyweight wrestling champion during his time in college, became the youngest ever undisputed Champion in the history of the WWE when he won the titles after storming onto the scene, and then became the UFC Heavyweight Champion with very little mixed martial arts training to his name at all.

Whilst on the surface it may look like Lesnar gets restless fairly easily and always wants to try new things, it seems that isn't the case, as Lesnar himself explained.

Appearing on ESPN's show 'SportsCenter' on Monday, via Fox Sports, 'The Beast Incarnate' made sure to let people know that the decisions he makes aren't based on creating a legacy for himself, but for the amount of money it will make him.

"I'm not much for legacy," Lesnar said, according to Damon Martin.

According to Lesnar, he doesn't really care about the WWE belts that he would've gotten given by the company any time he won one, or the UFC heavyweight title - in fact, he doesn't even know where they are.

"I guess people have their way of remembering what I did. I'm not about accomplishments. I don't have a trophy room. I don't have any symbolic things. I'm not a sentimental guy. I couldn't even tell you where my UFC titles are or my WWE championships or my NCAA plaque, my heavyweight plaque. I don't even now where that is right now."

Lesnar does know one thing, however, just how much sweet sweet green he has made during his illustrious, multi-sport career.

"But I do know one thing - how much money's in my bank account."

To be fair to Lesnar, he never really loved wrestling and has said before he only does it because it pays well. The big questions remains, though, for how much longer can he be "The Beast" before age catches up and money starts to dry out?
