take away all of brocks training and accompolishments and you would still have a raw set of natural talent. That talent may be merely understanding and applying leverage or being able to take pain or whatever, but everyone isn't trained into being a champion, you can't make a ncaa champion out of nothing, there has to be something there to work with
Thanks but not everything he has is natural, it's a big misconception. Brock wasn't even recruited out of high school. He went to a junior college, worked on his skills, became a champ, then went to Minnesota and became a champ. That guy worked his ASS off in the gym, developing mental toughness, etc.
