WWE Superstar The Undertaker dishes details on confrontation with Brock Lesnar at UFC event

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar and WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker had an infamous confrontation at UFC 121 in 2010.

On that night, Brock Lesnar stepped into the Octagon as the reigning UFC heavyweight champion. Doing battle with Cain Velasquez in the evening’s main event, fans were left shocked, but it didn’t have anything to do with what went down inside the cage. The Undertaker was in attendance, but not as a fan. During his appearance on an episode of Hawk vs. Wolf, the pro wrestling legend revealed he was “strictly there to pick a fight” with Brock Lesnar.

According to the Deadman, Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar knew the confrontation was going to happen, but someone forgot to loop in UFC president Dana White.

“Unbeknownst to Vince or myself, Dana had no clue what was going on,” Undertaker said. “We weren’t aware of the fact that Dana did not know that I was going to do that. He was not happy. Some guy from the WWE is challenging his biggest draw, but we thought he was on board with it.”

Lesnar ultimately returned to the WWE and carried out a feud with The Undertaker, but not until two years after the infamous confrontation.
