Brock Lesnar recently called himself “the modern-day Bo Jackson”
Bo … your thoughts?
“I don’t even know who Brock Lesnar is,” Jackson told TMZ.
Lesnar competes in both UFC and WWE, and compared his dual-athlete talents to Jackson in a recent tweet from SportsCenter.
Jackson, of course, moved from baseball to football and back again during his career. He earned a Heisman Trophy at Auburn and earned a No. 1 overall pick and Pro Bowl appearance during his time in the NFL. He also landed in the 1989 MLB All-Star game during his baseball career.
A 1991 hip injury cut short his two-sport career.
Jackson’s daughter, Morgan, responded to the SportsCenter tweet with a simple “stop” tweet.
The 1985 Heisman winner prompted a similar response.
“I don’t watch (UFC). No, not on my radar. … If I didn’t make money doing it I don’t know nothing about it,” he told TMZ.
