Brock Lesnar’s UFC Opponent, Plans To “Open Up” On Heyman’s YouTube

Published

on

Brock Lesnar appeared on SportsCenter on Monday to talk about his UFC return. During his interview, it was announced that Lesnar would be fighting Mark Hunt in the co-main event of UFC 200. Lesnar said that the decision to not fight again haunted him and he wanted to face his fears and wanted to fight again. Lesnar said he was at UFC 100 and why not be fighting at UFC 200. Lesnar explained that due to his health issues, he always felt he was never 100% during his MMA career. Lesnar said that he feels a 1000% right now.

Lesnar explained that he is still under contract with WWE, and he was the one who contacted the UFC about fighting again. Lesnar believes he is the modern-day Bo Jackson.

“I’m glad that I have the opportunity that both companies have faith in Brock Lesnar to step into the octagon. At the end of the day, I’m a prize fighter… I fight for money. They are making money. I’m making money. Everybody is making money. That’s what this all about … But you can’t step inside the Octagon just for the money.”

When asked about his plans at SummerSlam, Lesnar explained that he will be on the card but has no idea who he is wrestling at the event. Lesnar also noted that the deal with UFC was three months in the making and he was the one to pick up the phone and make the call.

Lesnar went 5-3 in his pro-MMA career and was a huge PPV draw for the promotion. Lesnar last fought in 2011 and lost to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 by first round TKO.

Hunt (12-10-1) is currently on a two-fight winning streak and is 3-2-1 in his last six bouts.

UFC 200 takes place at the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 9, 2016. The main card will air on PPV while the prelims air on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Paul Heyman has been very quiet since the news broke about Brock Lesnar’s return to UFC next month but he posted the following tweet (see below) regarding Brock Lesnar. Heyman noted that Lesnar would be opening up like never before on the official Heyman Hustle YouTube channel.
