Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt Official For UFC 200

Spread the word!

Former UFC heavyweight champion and WWE all star Brock Lesnar is once again the talk of the town in mixed martial arts. It’s been 15 months since Lesnar officially retired from the UFC, where he saw success as champion after demolishing Randy Couture for the belt. Successfully defending against Frank Mir and Shane Carwin, the gigantic beast was tamed by Cain Velasquez to lose the belt, and later demolished by Alistair Overeem who sent Lesnar in to retirement.

He left the sport with only a 5-3 record, but his impact on MMA was undeniable. As the main event attraction for the monster UFC 100 pay-per-view card, Lesnar led the march to promotional history during his rivalry with Frank Mir. Smashing the former champ by TKO, the WWE cross over helped destroy the all time PPV buy record.

During this past Saturday’s (June 4, 2016) UFC 199 broadcast, Ariel Helwani leaked information about Lesnar’s return fight. The UFC 200 promo video that aired later in the evening confirmed that Brock would be coming back to the UFC, with an opponent yet to be determined.

Instantly lighting up the MMA forums in a frenzy reminiscent of his first UFC signing in 2008, the surprise announcement by the promotion was truly awesome. Whether you’re a fan or not, you have to admit that the addition of Brock Lesnar to UFC 200 is HUGE!
