Looks like Brock Lesnar has awoken the beast…
UFC heavyweights Mark Hunt and Brock Lesnar will collide at UFC 200 in the co-main event. The former heavyweight champion and WWE (world wrestling entertainment) superstar Lesnar confirmed his return during a recent interview on ESPN.
The chilling promo for Lesnar’s return aired live during the UFC 199 broadcast last Saturday (June 4, 2016) and the internet was once again buzzing over Lesnar’s fighting career. It’s been nearly five years since he last fought in the UFC octagon.
We know Lesnar as a former UFC champion and wrestling/pro wrestling star, and he was also a notorious trash talker. The rivalry with fellow ex-champion Frank Mir saw many classic Lesnar rants.
During his recent appearance on SportsCenter, the giant Lesnar made a somewhat timid prediction for his bout with Hunt:
“I couldn’t live with my decision. It was a hard decision for me to make. That decision has haunted me for the last 15 months, and I couldn’t live with it for the rest of my life. I didn’t want to regret it 20 years from now. I was on UFC 100, so why not be on UFC 200, the biggest stage of all. This was me sitting and having a coffee and thinking about whether it was the right decision. I told nobody, this thing haunted me for a long time.”
“I’m fighting Mark Hunt, he’s a real tough guy, a hard striker. I’m a wrestler, that’s what the UFC does, they put styles against styles to see who’s best. I can tell you if Mark Hunt goes to ground with me, it’s over, I’ll finish.“
Turns out this statement may have essentially signed Brock Lesnar’s own death warrant. The fan pleasing Mark Hunt has heard what the WWE all star predicted for their UFC 200 bout, and he was not impressed.
