Brock Lesnar is an athlete who knows his worth, and he’s always realized that he’s made for big events. It was true as an amateur wrestler, as a WWE star, and also as a UFC fighter.
So, with the historic UFC 200 pay-per-view event coming up, Lesnar knew that it was the right time to scratch his competitive itch, once more. "If there was any time for Brock Lesnar to come back, it would just make sense that it would be for UFC 200," he says on the new UFC 200: It’s Time documentary special, narrated by chef and writer Anthony Bourdain.
"The last few fights that I had, they just weren’t fun, anymore. I want to get back and reclaim my loss to my illness, and just to have fun."
While Lesnar is looking for a good time, his UFC 200 opponent Mark Hunt has a very different goal for Saturday night. "I’m interested in just hurting him," Hunt responded.
Lesnar knows what he has to do to try and prevent that. The wrestler says he intends to put the champion kickboxer on his back.
"He’s going to try and knock me out, I’m going to try and take him down," he revealed.
