Over the weekend
UFC Ariel Helwani announced Brock Lesnar will return for UFC 200.
Today, his opponent has been revealed on ESPN, and the announcement does not disappoint. The WWE superstar will face off against the Super Samoan Mark Hunt.
As for why Hunt got the fight, Lesnar revealed it was the UFC’s choice, and he was happy to accept.
“I never turned down a fight,” he said during the interview with ESPN. “If Dana White called me and said you have opponent XYZ, who do you want? He never gave me those options. ‘This is the guy we want you to face’, I said great, that’s what I’m going to do.”
He will face Hunt in the new co-main event at UFC 200, which also features three title fights on the main card.
