Brock Lesnar’s triumphant return to UFC fighting promises to be epic, and he’s been training like a madman. HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned he’s hoping to knock out opponent Mark Hunt in the first round at his UFC 200 fight.
Get ready for an epic battle at UFC 200 July 9 as Brock Lesnar, 38, returns to the octagon for the first time in years, and he’s out to prove he still has what it takes when it comes to MMA fighting. HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned how The Beast is planning on destroying his challenger Mark Hunt, 42.
“Brock hasn’t been more ready for a fight in his life than he is for the one with Mark and he expects to knockout Mark in the first round and show that he is the best fighter in the world. His preparation has been from another planet, he is ready to make his mark in UFC history,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
This is Brock’s triumphant return to the UFC after retiring from the sport in Dec. 2011 after struggling with health issues and went on to focus his attention on his wrestling career over at the WWE. At the time he quit, he said “tonight was the last time you’ll see me in the octagon,” but never say never as when he made the big announcement in June that he’d be coming back for UFC 200, he said “Life is all about timing and the timing for me on this just feels right,” he told Paul Heyman. “I feel great. I’m just ready to do this.” He added, “My head is in the game on this.” While there won’t be any title on the line, it should be a highly entertaining bout and great to see Brock back in his element as an MMA fighter.
Brock’s battle is on the UFC 200 main fight card, proving how much interest there is in seeing the 2008 UFC Heavyweight champ back in the octagon. The 6’3″ 286 lb beast is going to have his hands full though as Mark has spent most of his career in the UFC and has kept up his MMA skills, where Brock has had to do more training since he he’s focused on pro wrestling for so long. The WWE has allowed Brock the one-off opportunity to participate in this fight, and he’ll return to the company for SummerSlam in August.
