The following press release was issued today:
May, 2009…Wildlife Research Center® – The industry leader in scent and human scent elimination is proud to announce that they are an official sponsor of Heavyweight Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Champion Brock Lesnar. John Burgeson, President of Wildlife Research Center® says, “I expected a lot when I watched a couple parts of his work out, but I was amazed at how far Brock’s speed, power, and ability went beyond my expectations. In regards to his hunting, I was also impressed by the Trophy Bucks that Brock and his wife have taken.”
Since age 5 Brock has been an avid enthusiastic hunter and outdoorsman, and he is proud to team up with America’s Top Brand® of scent and human scent elimination products, more specifically Wildlife Research Center’s® attractor scents, dispensers and Scent Killer® family of products.
Brock approaches a hunt just like he prepares for a fight. As he explained, “to be successful you have to understand your opponent. I know that a deer’s nose is his best defense, and if he smells me he will run. By reducing human odor, Scent Killer® products give me an edge.” He went on to say that, “as a bow and gun hunter, I am honored to be part of the Wildlife Research Center® team and look forward to assisting in developing the brand and helping more hunters become successful.”
Brock grew up in Webster, South Dakota, where he was 33-0 in his senior year as a high school wrestler. At Bismarck State (Junior) College, then at the University of Minnesota, Brock was a four-time All American, two-time Big Ten Champion and 2000 NCAA Division I Heavyweight National Champion. After finishing his college career with an astounding record of 106-5, Brock became world famous as a professional wrestler, and even had a short stint with the NFL® Minnesota Vikings – despite not having played football since his junior year of high school. Looking for a new challenge, Brock turned to mixed martial arts in 2006, and in his first fight on June 2, 2007 took only 69 seconds to destroy Olympic judo medalist Min Soo Kim with strikes that led to a submission. On November 15, 2008, Brock defeated MMA legend Randy Couture by TKO to become the new Heavyweight Champion.
Wildlife Research Center’s John Burgeson remarked that, “all of those trophy whitetails on Brock’s wall make me think that he may be a better hunter than athlete, if that is possible.” Brock agreed, pointing out that “when I’m not fighting, I’m hunting. It is a great sport that both my wife and I enjoy.”
Wildlife Research Center® has been studying how deer relate to different scents for decades and is committed to providing information and state of the art products to help you become a very high-level whitetail hunter. John Burgeson proudly declares that “Our company has one simple policy and everything flows from there – Treat people the way you would like to be treated. That includes offering the best products available, great information on how to use them, our 100% Money-Back Guarantee, and more. Having Brock Lesnar on board with Wildlife Research Center® increases our brand awareness and commitment to smash human odor. Wildlife® is proud to be associated with a quality person like Brock. Brock Lesnar’s MMA record speaks for itself, but I really like the fact that he takes the Brock Lesnar enthusiasm and work ethic into the field to hunt. To me, that says a lot about who Brock really is.”
